Speaking of Crescent I just read on Swellnet they have paved the road out to LimeBurners Creek.
Up until Big Hill, where the national park starts.

Funny how "everyone" is getting their knickers in a knot about it too, considering that half of that road was already sealed.

The other yelling is all about more people using it now, but if you've spent enough time in the area, then you'd already know how much traffic travels along that road ... as in heaps. Some things are worth fighting for, but not 5.8km of an 11km stretch of shitfully maintained unsealed road.

It’s funny how it’s always way more busy along that teeth rattling potholed stretch than on the bitumen road to Hat Head. Back in the day when you could get right through to Port in a regular car….if you thrashed it. Long gone. Seal Rocks isn’t the same either.
I kind of agree about the road but it’s not as romantic cruising along a nice new road. Too much potential beach front real estate.

I’m going to tell a beany type story.
In the 70s, dad and I were doing a drive in the old HT Kingswood exploring the north coast NSW beaches. I was a teenager. We were driving along the unpaved Point Plomer Rd when we encountered a hippie couple with their thumbs out. Lone car, lone hitchers, we decided to pick them up. They got into the back seat and were appreciative and very chatty. In the old front bench car seat arrangement, it was easy for me to turn around and talk to them directly. It was impossible not to notice that the young woman’s hippie top was very seethrough and her breasts were clearly visible. I did well not to stare, but they were the first breasts I had ever seen in real life. And that is my very happy memory of driving the old Point Plomer Rd.

No, I didn’t because she was too special to me.🥲

Those titties would have been bouncing about like ... well a pair of free range hippy titties on the Plomer road.

I drove out there one time and just when I hit the corrugations coming up to Plomer itself here comes a big Land Cruiser with a fcuking huge powerboat on the back. It’s rattling around violently and the look on the guys face was pure terror.

Surfed the snapper thru Kirra stretch. Did three laps. Current was horrendous, as it often is when the points are on. Got some crackers, then creased my board after getting mowed down on this sketchy dredge up bank in line with old second groin. Now in Byron. It’s handling the swell better.

McCoy. Thinking of getting another but in a 6’3.

Or I might be swayed to look at a 6’4 pyzel ghost xl.

Surfs pumping here and I only packed the one board. So I’ll end up grabbing something or other tomorrow

It looked better this arvo than when I was out there. Looked to pick up a bit this arvo when I looked out the front. Did you park where I suggested? It took me a little while living up here that rather than do a Beans and drive around looking for an elusive parking spot at Snapper. Now I park in a back street in Cooly and walk around because you’ll end up down past that way anyway if it’s pumping.

Wouldn’t be trying to park at Snapper if I was there. You forget I know the place better than you do, Jimny.

There were some six foot sets. Parked at dbah. Plenty spots.

The distinct difference between SEQ and southern nsw surf really hit home today, a proper reminder.

You’ll paddle your fucken ring out in SEQ to surf great waves. But way less effort down south to surf bigger conditions thanks to the way the coastline is all broken up

The sweep was horrendous yesterday ... then again, if you got into that reverse sweep at Snapper, you'd have been back at the D'bah carpark in no time.

Swell starting to show in Sydney now, a few solid sets with the tide dropping. It it was offshore, it would be epic.

Felt up a bunch of different shortboards

JS bulls eye, raging bull, and hi fi. DHD something or other. Some dominator 2 mankine FireWire thing.

None of them really appealed enough for me to throw cash at it.

Had a look see at angourie and crescent, both maxed out blustery washing machines with nobody out.
