Spent a couple of weeks there and would return at moment's notice Now that is bloody tempting Swivic, love Port Campbell. Will mention it to the mis...

Re: Strahan tassie

Good the fcuk on you, digger. One day for sure. Stone's throw from the West and day trip to the NW. Plenty of gems nearby, in and out of the ocean. My mum spent much of her childhood on Robbins Island. I need to get there before I'm dead. Closest I got was a fantastic left just near on the mainland...

Re: Strahan tassie

Cheers Rust and no mate it’s not. It’s 56 Macnamara Street Queenstown for 85000. At the moment on realestate.com.au it says under offer. If anyone ever travels that way on the West Coast after April drop us a line and we can catch a wave. Though I will be without internet till September or October. ...

Re: biggest wave ever U ever surfed?

I’m 6 ft high exactly, so biggest was about double and a half overhead, maybe triple, felt like triple at the bottom, however wave hieght are judged doesn’t bother me. I use the scale to small, fun height, ok gotta concentrate height, am I fit enough he...

Re: Strahan tassie

We bought a house in queenstown. 5 bed, repayments of only 70 a week, really bloody small mortgage. Can’t go wrong when we like small town living. I’m gonna set up a shaping bay, make some bellys with trail harbour in mind. We’re leaving gympie on the 24th next month. Time to check out of the east c...

Re: Belly boards

Just joined the forum, spending my time trying to find stuff on fibreglass rails and rockers. I’m thinking 2” on nose and 1 “ on tail ?

Cheers mate. I’m 6ft in height and around 85kg. I’m now thinking 5 ft and 4’8. Just about got the bay ready to start shaping. Got some ideas around a 5 fin type bonzer and a flat bottom twinzer with small fins

Re: Strahan tassie

I know people that moved to Queenstown last year, they like it. Apparently you can get a house for 35,000. But what sort of house? Strauhn may have waves over summer with the easterlies blowing and zero swell, looks like a shallow beach. Having trial bay as a back up for when you get desperate woul...

Re: Strahan tassie

Rent in Queenstown is bloody cheap. We have decided to either rent in Queenstown to help with savings for a home or Burnie were there is a specialist Autism School that is known across Australia. Our youngest is just about 4 and severely speech delayed so Burnie is another option. The rent in Burnie...

Re: Strahan tassie

Thinking I might go down for a weekend. Get some locals show me around, see what’s there, look at homes, Suss the services out, film it on go pro, and then seriously consider it. There’s always trial bay or further north when desperate for surf.

Re: Strahan tassie

Beggars can’t be choosers :(. It won’t be long till the rent is to high for us in gympie. Give it three years then we will be priced out. We can’t afford anywhere on the Sunshine Coast. With both of us as careers looking after our kids on the spectrum I don’t want to become homeless like all those o...

Strahan tassie

Looking at making a possible permanent move to tassie. Moving to Queenstown which is 40 minutes to Strahan. Does anyone know about the surf at ocean beach?? Sounds like it’s a bit of hit and miss. Considering the trip from gympie to Noosa is about 40 min it’s not to far from the surf I suppose.
