Huge waves for WA south coast

Huge waves forecast for the south west of Western Australia are proving to be a thrill for ‘big wave’ surfers. The huge waves are been generated by a massive storm in the southern Indian Oean.

Waves were forecast to potentially hit nine metres today, while those expected at offshore reef breaks at the peak this afternoon could be up to 18m.

This morning over at Surfers Point only two surfers were brave enough to ride the big waves. Using jet skis to tow them out to the back they didn’t have to wait long for their turn. We joined the crowd of onlookers to get some photos…..unfortunately the waves don’t look all that big in the photographs…but trust me they were. In normal conditions lots of surfers are competing for the waves.

I’m sure they enjoyed the adrenalin rush! We enjoyed watching!
