Take the road to margaret river main break (surfers point). if you're standing in the car park watching main break and the conditions are right you should see a sizey right hand barrel to your right, this is the box. you'll be staring into the beast! follow the road to the river mouth then walk on the beach past the river mouth onto the reef and head to the break until you think it's safe enough to jump of the rock into the water and paddle towards the beast. ( a tip don't go out by yourself, and if it's your first time watch some one else first for a bit, common sense)

Surfing this spot on less than ideal conditions (ie tide, swell direction) is asking for a beating. Almost guarenteed to hit the reef if you fall off. Having a good ride will get you hooked to this spot.
Practise holding your breath and/or breathing under water, you'll need it! And watch out for the reef it's sharp and shallow and it does KILL.
Its the most awesome wave I've surfed, you can feel the power of the wave as you padddle out (which is quite a long way). Sitting out in the line up you come to terms that the wave is pretty tricky to surf even at the best of times. This is a hard-core break, it has seen many skilled athletes get injured, don't mess with it. On the other hand it is where you will get one of the best most memorable rides of your life. The locals are a friendly bunch, but try not to upset them as they may turn sour.
I love it, I get stoked just by looking at it!
