Situated well offshore from NW Western Australia, Scott and Seringapatam are a collection of sub sea platform reefs that have long ben famous with fishermen but recently have begun to offer an option for travelling surfers.

The sheer location of the shoals in the middle of the Indian Ocean some 200 miles from land renders them expensive to travel to. This location however ensures a regular supply of open ocean swell activity. The Scott and Seringapatam Reefs are an area to watch in the future in terms of new open ocean wave discoveries.
