Surfing conditions off the Nine Mile beach have been awesome of late.  With the summer holiday break there has been plenty of people visiting the West Coast hoping for some surf and they haven’t been disappointed.

Nice clear water and nice clean waves with some great barrels has helped wet their appetite and kept smiles on all their faces.

Others make the most of the great weather to get a feed of mussels from out off the rocks.  These ladies took the opportunity to capture the surfers in action.

The surfers were oblivious to their audience though – they were just enjoying the conditions and having a good time and why not – picture perfect, a surfers dream.

      Hi Brad – hey that is awesome. Glad you found the blog featuring you both. Whenever we see people out surfing hubby tries to get down to photograph them. Don’t know how your budget is but we are a b&b above the surf break. Depending on time of the year, happy to look at a special rate for you. Can’t do much over the busy summer season but shoulder/winter we can and the surf can be awesome then. See you next time. Cheers
