Ryan from Australia
“Being a local at Boomers I have surfed the break in both good and bad conditions, when the wind is good and the swell is more than 1.5ft the break is brilliant there are rarely more then 5-6 people out, and even then the waves are very consistent so you're never waiting very long for your next ride.”
