Eden

Wednesday February, 11, 2015

My last surf location in New South Wales was in the nice little town called Eden, just north of the Victorian border.

We stayed at the van park just over the road from Aslings Beach. The beach itself is 2 kilometres long and although the surf was not that big, maybe a tad over 2 ft, I did have a few surfs with the long board and it was a nice little left and right beach break.

I think it might get a good wave there if it gets a decent swell come through, nice place to spend a few days.


Dolphin Point

Saturday February 7, 2015

We pulled into Dolphin Point Tourist Park just south of Uladulla on and I was down the beach checking out the waves when I saw this guy carrying his board round the point.

So I grabbed mine and tagged along after him, headed around a few points and low and behold there was this left hand reef break, 4 to 5 foot and a ride of about 100 metres plus. Excellent, and it was crowded – there was at least 10 guys.

Saturday was just as good maybe a little smaller, and still only 12 guys out, had a good 3 hours of solid surf.

Seven Mile Beach

Friday February 6, 2015

While staying at Seven Mile Holiday Park at the North end of Seven Mile Beach there wasn’t that much swell, but I did get a few surfs in. It was only small so I had to use the long board and did manage to get a few around waist high.

Also had a surf at Werri Beach on the last day and it did pick up a little. It was about 3 foot on a right hand point break, nice wave. On a good day I suppose you might get a good long ride out of it.


Windang Beach

Sunday February 1, 2015

If you’re ever driving past Lake Illawarra and you want to bet a barrel, drop into Windang Beach. Spent four days there when a decent swell was on and it was an absolute barrel fest at the entrance to Lake Illawarra.

It was a good 6 – 8′ with a few bombs rolling through. So if you get the chance and the swell is on, I highly recommend it.


Redhead Beach

Tuesday January 20, 2015

Surfed Redhead Beach a few times in January. Most crowded 200 metres of surfing real estate I’ve ever seen and the waves weren’t that good.

If you’re driving past, keep driving.


Corindi Beach

Tuesday December 16, 2014

Wonderful surf – a top session. Just me and one other guy in the water catching 3 foot fun waves. They were excellent left-hand breaks and I was in the water for 3 hours.

Arrawarra

Sunday December 14, 2014

Surfed the north side of the Arrawarra Headland on Sunday, the waves were perhaps 3 – 4 foot and I was riding my long board, but surf was really good. I was in the water on my own for about 15 minutes which was really great until 10 other guys got in the water.

I surfed for about 4 hours. Highly recommend both Corindi and Arrawarra so long as the surf is up.


Corindi Beach

Tuesday December 9, 2014

Have had a few average surfs here at Corindi. Winds and surf are both out of the north and swell has only been 2 foot.

This means the surf had only been small, but l’ve had a few fun days. I’d like to be here when the surf goes off.


Angourie

Saturday November 22, 2014

Surfed at the Angourie Surf Reserve this morning. The waves were not the best while I was there, but I’m sure there are plenty of days when the waves are good.


Yamba

Friday November 21, 2014

I’ve been surfing at Pippi Beach early in the morning for the last four days. Waves have been excellent. 4 foot left hand breaks with dolphins cruising past, so close you can almost touch them.

Anyone going past, should stop in at Pippi Beach for a surf.


Ballina

Monday November 17, 2014

I only surfed the north wall and as the conditions at Ballina were really windy. On the few occasions when the wind died down, the waves were 1 – 2 foot, glassy, left and right hand breaks.

Once again I was in the water with dolphins and I actually surfed one wave with a dolphin. It was really cool.


Hastings Point

Wednesday November 12, 2014

The surf has been great as there is a nice little left-hand wave on the south side of the headland.

Surfed on Tuesday with a dozen dolphins in the water playing in and around the waves. They were that close I could have touched them – how cool was that?

The waves were 3 foot and glassy and there was only a few other guys in the water.

I hope to get a another few good surfs in before we leave on Friday.


Dicky Beach

Friday November 7, 2014

I had my last surf at Dicky Beach this morning.

There were nice little two-foot waves, the water was glassy and I had fun for a couple of hours out in the water all by myself early on.

This is most likely the last time I’ll surf a wave in Queensland.
