Thousands of Australians regularly journey to the coastline to surf some of the world´s best-known breaks. Bell´s Beach in Victoria, the town of Margaret River in Western Australia and Sydney´s Bondi Beach are all world-famous surf breaks, but locals will tell you the lesser-known spots are home to the best waves.
Australians have long been at the top of professional surfing. Mark Occhilupo and Shane Powell rank among the elite men, and Layne Beachley sits atop the women´s world rankings. Nude surfing is a popular novelty event. The sadly now defunct Sydney Fringe Festival Night Nude Surfing Contest was once a yearly favourite at Bondi.
