The Seventh Wonder of the Surfing World

Up in the dusty North-Western reaches of Western Australia, there's a place long entrenched in the fantasies of travelling surfers.  Red Bluff is a place impenetrable to new forms of technology, where the perennial magic of surfing carries on quietly.  It sits atop the totem of the myth and legend of Australian surfing. 

Anyone who's endured a lengthy stint out here understands returning here isn't just another surfing rendezvous. This is a spiritual homecoming.  There’s a kind of magic contained in the ubiquitous dust and salt; and if you spend long enough out here, the grit and the mystery seep under your skin.  This is one of the seven great wonders of the surfing world.
