“Welcome to Nipussi, a wave that I eagerly look forward to whenever it’s on the horizon. Nipussi is a dependable friend, breaking consistently throughout the year, even when other spots take a break. It’s a testament to nature’s beauty and power.”

“Nipussi offers two distinct take-off spots, each offering a unique surfing experience. The first spot sits a bit deeper, right on the corner of the reef. It produces waves that barrel beautifully and offer an exciting ride from start to finish. The second spot, slightly wider on the reef, often offers bigger waves that provide an adrenaline rush, allowing for two to three massive turns that stay etched in your memory.”

“I’ve captured some of my most cherished surfing moments at Nipussi, with the lush backdrop of coconut forests adding to the charm.”

Tips from Gus Garcez, Playground Surf Resort

"I spent 8 days here with an awesome crew of friends and the outstanding coaching support of Margaret River High Performance Centre. The resort is simply stunning; the welcome from Donny and his tribe of cooks, photographers and boat crew goes well beyond anything I've experienced before. Such a great, happy, welcoming group of people. And the waves... OMG, these are world class and there are options for all levels. At least 20 surf breaks on your doorstep and local knowledge ensures that you hit the right ones according to winds, tide and swell. I'll never forget my time at Playgrounds and the wonderful people with whom I shared this experience!"
