Visited Woorim beach, for the first time in about a decade, a few weeks ago. Reckon it's about one good storm away from disappearing. I know sand usually comes back but, looking towards a future with higher sea levels, I do wonder how severe the impact will be. Maybe boo knows?

Woorim is about to get a sand pumping system, with a bypass pump taking sand from a semi-permanent sand bar off the southern end and pumped onto the beach South Straddy style .

It's going to be insane on the rare days Bribie gets proper swell.
Don't fcuk with the locals there, you'll end in Moteton Bay with a fridge tied to your ankles.

I’ve surfed woorim beach once before. Hollow shore break at chest high plus and surprisingly good.

Was about fifteen or so years ago. Visiting a mate from Melbourne who at the time for some bizarre reason thought it was a good idea to move there. After a few months having made his way through a bunch of different single mothers and too much drinking he thought better of it, sold up and moved back home again.

It's a strange place with a lot of colonial gothic history: very much like the American south.

Yeah, what Steve said.
Same as the sand monster thing they use at Noosa.

Is the idea that it will provide for a bit more sand north of Woorim as well? Only one dune separating some of those houses to the north from Moreton Bay...

The erosion there is due to currents not waves, so you don't really need a huge buffer.
The shifter is a semi-permanent replacement for the dredging and rainbowing they've been doing. It takes the sand North, and the current brings it back.

In the long term they'll need a better solution as the currents will only get stronger with the rotation of average swell more to the NE.

If I live long enough, and my house isn’t underwater. I welcome our new north swell overlords.

Won't have to wait that long, La Niña means more NE swells.

I went to primary school there for a small amount of time. Good memories of low tide sand flats in the channel. Soldier crabs, hermit crabs, mangrove bits

There's only about 40 people on realsurf and half of them seem to have some sort of intimate connection to bribie island.

WTF is going on.

I spent a fair bit of time on Bribie as a young-un.

I sense a conspiracy here. I'm sure this is how the Da Vinci Code got started. Were you all members of the Bribie Island Free Masons?
