We stayed above a surf shop in a small town by the coast. Was a great location right across the road from the local surfing beach, with restaurants and seven eleven in easy reach. Loved the local food. Sammy knew all the best (and cheapest) places to eat. From local night markets to iced tea stores. Some meals were as cheap as $2 Oz! Sammy took us anywhere we wanted to go at any time. Whether it was for surfing, sightseeing or food. Sammy knew all the best spots for all conditions. He also has many contacts to get up to the minute surf reports from across the south. We had some great waves varying in size. From points to reefs to beachies to river mouths. There is a good range of things to see and do. The aquarium was a highlight. Sammy was a great guide and very easy to get along with. I would very much like to return but there are many other places to go as well. Next time I would probably try the east coast.
