We have to talk about the general wind conditions in Western Australia here. The wind blows form the S and SE at speeds that vary between 20 and 30 knots. The further north you travel, the stronger the wind gets. There are a few months that are better than average as far as the wind is concerned - October, November, December, January, February, March and April.

The water conditions are ideal for waveriding. You will definitely have tons of fun riding the waves at Gnaraloo. The waves are so long that you will sometimes find it hard to ride the entire wave.
Sometimes it may be difficult to launch, depending on the tide.
Breaking your gear on the reef, in the shallow water, is not unheard of.
Some say the water smells of fish, which is a bad thing if you have a sensitive sense of smell.
