SDB Pioneer Andrew Bennett in Australia
Words by Andrew Bennett // All Photos by Seth de Roulet
New South Wales, Australia is an incredible place to be a surfer. The water’s warm, a swell with a period of only 9 seconds is pumping, and it’s littered with beautiful points, beachbreaks and slabs. It’s a surfing culture, so everyone is out in the water at some point during the day.
The crowds can be intense but there are tons of opportunities to find you’re own barreling peak at a beach break or a short window at the point breaks in-between surfing shifts. The place is so wave rich it’s no wonder a third of the ASP World Championship Tour surfers are from Australia.
