the other 100 metres out and quite deep - again straight and parralel to the beach :( looks shite for the foreseeable future

Yep ... but some potential for the more fertile of imagination ... but yep non the less.

:?: general question here, as I've been prompted* to ask when thinking about the last ECL and where I surfed compared to reports of best Kirra in years etc... Does sand on the points play a more or less equally important role in surf quality during a large windswell, close, mid and long range groundswells? You know, ceterus parabis...

sand is everything up here in QLD (for our points) wind or ground swell... those funky little NE swells on the beachies when the wind goes SW is pretty much the only exception I know of.

but sand is our point's entire life source. I've seen currumbin and burleigh over the last 20 years in 4-6ft E swells with not a person out there because there's no sand for the swells to hug, just a huge hole. This usually happens post bank-busting storm episodes.
