    Pro Surfing at Margaret River

    Hi everyone

    I am just wondering if anyone in WA is heading down to Margaret River on Sunday for the pro surf final?

    I am just in the process of tying up a few loose ends so I can go down...love to try my hand at catching a few of the pearler waves that are building up.

    Hmmm, actually this does sound interesting. What time would you be looking at heading down there?

    OH, great ...yes we will have a chat about it Saturday, we can probably car pool, some ppl can come with me no prob, I have a new Ranger 4WD 4DR. I was thinking of heading off very early so we have some excellent light on them. Maybe we can look at doing some other stuff down there too, make the most of it

    Yeah, we'll have a chat about it tomorrow...I'm thinking I'll leave about 6am or before to catch the best light.

    Guys the surfing final was on Saturday. I was down there wed-fri. Weather was terrible and the waves were just as bad, there was an on shore wind blowing making the waves ugly and full of whitewash. Friday was a lot calmer with a very slight off shore breeze. Saturday was crap, no waves and a very disappointing final in terms of Margaret River being the showcase for WA...but thats the weather I suppose. Usually at this time of the year, the weather has rolled in making it massive down there.. not this year though.
