Right now there are thousands of waves breaking on beach all around Australia. Some will be a tempting 4ft, over white sand, in crystal clear water, others will be a bone crunching 10ft, grinding over shallower effs, and scaring the hell out of all in sight. That is the magic of Australia's coastline. Its diversity and enormity. This guide will get you to all those places and provide you with plenty of essential information and a good laugh along the way.

It's a real surfer's travel guide. It includes:
- In-depth wave descriptions for every major surf break in Australia
- A comprehensive accommodation, food and party guide, as well as flat day fun activities
- Surf survival techniques, road-trip planning, 4wd tips, advice on buying second hand cars and weather forecasting.
- Detailed surf maps. It also has other essential information such as a beer guide (who knows what a Butcher or a Bobbie is?) and a complete healthy travel section to keep you fit for the surf. There's enough information to keep the most intrepid travellers satisfied.
