I've surfed the Northern tip a few times. 🙄

But the best visit was back in the early 70s when we rode our trail bikes up from Brisbane and carved up the northern end sandhills. 😟

we used to ride our bikes up the northern tip to surf, 27k's on sand, sometimes before school.
We'd leave at 3, 4 am.
Be back in time for the school bus.

It was a different time.

He meant the school bus. Cnut who drove it was always too busy mooning over Joey Conrad and blowing up engines

I have actually been there, many decades ago.

Luckily, I was not corralled by any of the seemingly friendly locals and managed to escape unscathed and subsequently to lead a, relatively, normal life, unscared by my experiences. Unlike some others here on realsurf

Tits up Trevor would be a great name for a new Wiggles character, the drunk one. We just need to decide on the skivvy colour.

You should see what shearer wrote in the comments sections of Beachgrit this morning, something about existence being all just emptiness, I nearly called the ambulance for him

Steve needs a years worth of wonky reefs and semi close out beach breaks to snap him back into cold hard reality.

God Carroll, can you please stop cross-pollinating from one forum to the other. What goes on there is there and what happens here is here.

But it is true. Most of what we understand as reality are merely epiphenomena operating in empty space.

Give Thomas Nagel's book Mind and Cosmos a whirl if you want to see a decent attempt to make sense of mind beyond Darwinian materialism.


Bribie has more than the colonial gothic feel to it, it also has a very strong evanescence of a South Pacific WW2 outpost. The so called Brisbane line, which was the point at which Australia would be defended against an expected invasion from the Japanese was in fact, the Bribie Line.
Fortifications along the Island were built with the purpose of being the front line of defence against a naval invasion.

They were the forts we played in as kids, used as markers for our surf spots. That history seeped into our bones and informed our day to day reality, although we weren't able to put it into context until much later.

It's changing rapidly now though. Bribie is a boom development site.
