Margaret River is officially considered one of the world’s top 10 surfing destinations and has been named Western Australia’s first national surfing reserve. With consistent and spectacularly big waves, it is a mecca for power surfers, providing options like the Box, Left Point and Main Break.
With this in mind, you will want to pack your team with surfers that can put their boards seriously on rail, take on that big ocean power and throw it right back and make smart choices in a tricky shifty lineup, along with the range of possibilities for venue.
Quick Hot Picks for the event.
1. John John Florence 2. Michael Borez
3. Julian Wilson
4. Connor Coffin
5. Frederico Morais
6. Wade Carmichael
7. Griffin Colapinto
8. Mikey Wright
We are spoilt for choice for surfers that fit the bill for Margies. The obvious choice right away is Jon Jon, who left everyone last year looking like kiddies on soft-tops with his sheer power and brilliance. Then there is stylish power with Julian, Conner, Michael and Frederico... and savage destructive power with Wade and Mikey.
But remember if this year so far is anything to go by... a sure thing is never a shore thing so feel free to put chance to the wind. Other good additions could be Seabass, Toledo and Paddy G.... Good Luck Punters.
