The best option for a surf trip to the Abrohlos is to befriend a cray fisherman (they are the worlds friendliest people) and let him take you to the spots.
I have just such a friend.
The Abrohlos are 22miles off Geraldton and only have surf in winter. But when it breaks it is epic.

SHARKS - Oi! Surfed Abrolhos three times and each time I was attacked by a shark. First it took my leg, then it took my arm, then another leg. 3 for 3!!! Don't surf there! The waves suck anyway. They are not perfect. And it's totally crowded. And everyone is being attacked by sharks. BLOOD EVERYWHERE!!! And watch out for the locals! They are ninjas and carry samuri swords!!! DON'T SURF THERE!
