Fun overhead beach breaks yesterday mid-arvo once the wind sorted itself out, and still some decent snack-sized quality lefts and rights earlier this morning.

Yes, unfortunately not on the cards. I agree there has never been a time to go since 1966. :-D-:

A few friends went up there around 1966 and never came back. The rest went to Byron and surrounds. About 10 in all.

Me? I think the Bukit is way better, but not for your kids though. I'm still trying to talk Mrs Cranked into it. The frustrating thing is I'm pretty sure she would enjoy it more than anywhere in Oz. Its still a tight little enclave of long standing expats from all over the world with mutual support and friendship with the local Balinese.

A few fun tiddlers at the Bra. Nice conditions for over there but a bit crowded.
Yeah, Mid North Coast was always the poor cousin to home when I was growing up.
Had my first real surf trip down there after the HSC with a couple of mates.
Crescent was pretty crap actually but Angourie was going off the day before and The Pass on the way back.
There have actually been a lot of old surf identities that have set up camp on the Mid North Coast over the years.
Usually camped there or Laureton going up or down when I was at College in Newcastle. Sometimes Sawtell.

Yep, 100%. No idea why anyone would even try surfing in that stretch between Newcastle and Byron :-D-:

Today was insane. Again!

Came in much bigger than expected this morning, as did the crowd.

That’s the open stretch/the bar not the point.
