Equipment choice for G-Land can be determined largely by how big the surf is going to be. If you have the luxury of being able to pack your boards a few days before a trip, then you’re well-placed to get it right. If you are looking at a forecast of 4-6 feet and not too much bigger, then you can pack your normal shortboard and spare, along with at least one or two step-up boards, say, 2-4 inches bigger than your normal boards. When the forecast is looking more towards 8-10 feet, you will want to have your mid-range guns ready to blaze! Of course, you will still need a shortboard and your step-ups, but now it’s time to consider a board in the 6’8 to 7’2 range. How far the storm pushes up the W.A. coast will have a bearing on how much water is moving through the lineup. This is when you can go even longer to acquire more paddle speed against the current and get yourself positioned on The Launching Pad!
