did two laps of kirra this arv and got one big set wave that didn't barrel but was hell fun on my home-shaped 5'9 four finner, and then a draining runaway and got eaten up.
rest of the time was spent paddling.

Wasn't just the rocks Steve.
This is the first big swell since the reef has been properly exposed.
Took 10 years to scour out.

yeah the reef was critical.

So does the bank now hug the Point like the old day or does it straighten out somewhere along the line?


Merks, dunno about here mate.......watched the sand all go bye-byes today.

see what happens when this settles but I reckon it's gone daddy gone.

nah, doesn't hug the point like it use to, still breaks about 50+ metres further out from where it use to. it's still following the sand line from the superbank.

kinda straightens/ gets too fast a bit past where little groyne used to be. Then it fattens out completely a bit past that. You can see when it's calm where the bank ends just into a deep gutter. old kirra 9 outta 10 waves were makeable ... it's now about 50-50 depending how good you are. there were plenty of punters making barrels, and plenty more getting snapped in two.

guys like dingo and mick were stalling and speeding up and getting 3 or 4 dirty, filthy tubes every wave.

I can't see anything changing the line of sand from snapper (in relation to the wave hugging the old point). maybe when the reef is properly exposed and little groyne comes back? even then, for that to happen you'd need greenmount to appear on some level again. thats the old sand line kirra followed, not snapper.

i tell you what, little groyne kirra was a disgustingly dirty little wave to tuck into in its day. if that wave comes back, I'll move back to kirra.
