Comments: what an amazing spot! As you can see from the video and pictures, the colour of the water and the sand is brilliant. We love being able to explore around coastal areas on our SUPs. The bay that we launched in and explored was called 'The Lagoon', which is a popular camping area for families. There are many awesome spots along this coastal station to explore on your SUP and there are three notable surf breaks. Mike went out at South Boundary and caught some fun waves. If you have a boat, you up your chances of scoring some quality fish.
If you wish to stay at Warroora, you need to visit the caretaker' office before setting up camp, pay a minimal fee and bring in all of your own food, water, firewood (if fires are permitted) and a chemical toilet. For more information about Warroora Station, click here.
Comments: This is the most water that Yealering has had in its lake in 27 years! To celebrate, the town threw a Regatta and Market day, where it appeared every man and his dog came to town. And I must say, I was a little jealous of some of the DYI water craft that were getting a run that day; the rubber duckie team sitting on milk crates, the Emu Export bikes on keg and an honourable mention to the Oktoberfest chaps with their picnic table and umbrella.
Mike, Tom and I were busy running mini lessons for the local kids, but during our break, we were able to go for a cruise further out past the jetty. Unfortunately, the winds were blowing a small gale (with gusts up around 40-50km/hr mark) so once we had enough of paddling into the wind, we enjoyed a fast downwind session back to our base. Wonderful day and friendly locals.
Comments: I have never experienced anything like Cocos in my life. We were super lucky to have my brother-in-law and his wife living there at the time, so we were set up with accommodation, surfboards, car and a boat (thanks Matt and Liz!). The water is amazing, the marine life was great, the surfing blew my mind and the islands are just magical. I highly recommend visiting Cocos Keeling Islands.

Comments: Wright’s Bridge campground is only 3-ish hours from Perth in a beautiful part of the state. Balingup, which is the closest town to this part of the river, is quaint, with small gift shops, cafes and a pub. The campground was very close to the righthand side of the horseshoe river bend, so it was a short (approx. 300m) drive from the campground to the day area to launch the boards. A 1 km cruise down river and a small walk up the hill saw us arrive back at our campsite. We loved this SUP session so much, we did the loop three times back to back.
