The amount of underground talent in Australia cannot be overstated.
I've said it once and I'll say it a thousand times: no country has deeper pockets of surf talent than Australia.

In the case of Western Australia, there's a genuine army of world-class tuberiders whose names we've never heard (or at least this American has never heard).

We were particularly enamored by the Gnaraloo section, with the bomb-drop at 3:17 taking top honors.
