Some help please - Greet,sIm writing from Europe...I hear merewether has a decent, consistent surf, but what's great about the place is that it's a real surf community.Iheard the local crew is pretty cool and that everyone surfs...Is that the truth? Can somebody please reply on this and tell me in details.I first heard about it when I heard about Silverchair.
