Re: Where did you surf today ?

Swell due overnight didn't arrive fully but still nice head high stuff with an occasional bomb. Got 4 all the way to the beach from right out the back, along with plenty of shorter ones. Looked at my watch when I came in. Three hours. Three fucking hours! Bit sore around the shoulders but otherwise ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Could also be Trev, getting to his knees first in a two-step process. Or Coops doing double drop-knee. :D It's still a one step process. Just a little slower than it used to be. Although I find that if I don't think about it and the thing is rearing up a bit, I can still get to my feet quickly. Jus...

Re: Bribie Island Breakthrough.

Caloundra is over 50,000 but that's including Pelican Waters, north to Currimundi and west to the new development at Aura near the highway and down to Bells Creek. Jeezuz. I agree it's a bit compressed but Lennox and Pelican Waters have about the same population. Add in Ballina and Lismore and you'...

Re: Bribie Island Breakthrough.

The rock bottom makes it very similar to Fairy Bower which was my go to spot in Sydney.

Re: Bribie Island Breakthrough.

Moffs is as you say, surreal.
The rock bottom doesn't change but swell direction, tide, swell period all combine to produce totally different waves pretty much every day.

Re: Bribie Island Breakthrough.

In Caloundra as a whole>? Never forget the first surf I had at Moffats as a kid, it felt surreal to be surfing over rock bottom. No. That's the population of Pelican Waters. Caloundra is over 50,000 but that's including Pelican Waters, north to Currimundi and west to the new development at Aura nea...

I had no idea there was that much development there.
Well over 7000 people here now Steve.

Still no traffic lights but it's the roundabout capital of the world.

Re: Bribie Island Breakthrough.

This pic clearly shows how the run out from the increasing number of canals angles diagonally across the Passage and eats away at the inside of Bribie.

Note the sand slug, well out from the new opening.

Re: Bribie Island Breakthrough.

Just show us photos of the waves please Trevor. I'm told there's been some surfing going on but haven't found anyone who's actually bothered. There's potential there for both a left and a right. Yesterday I noticed waves breaking well out past the "bar". It looks like there's a slug of sand forming...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Not totally flat here. But northerlies now.
Wednesday I had an hour and a half at my local. Then another hour at The Bluff.

Pretty worn out by the end of all that.

Re: Bribie Island Breakthrough.

Just opposite the southern extremity of the new opening, there's a mangrove walkway. And south of that, open grassed areas alongside the passage just north of the Power Boat Club. The first few pics show the grass covered in sand, the rest the sand invasion of the mangroves. Hopefully it won't have ...

Camping up the north end before the bogans cottoned on was epic.

Sounds like loof wants to be camp up the north end.

Re: Bribie Island Breakthrough.

Trev you're right, the sand will just roll backwards and eventually join up on the landward side. Boo, there's a FB page called Bluey's Photography. I know you don't do FB but I'm sure you'll have some sort of access. They have just come back from a tour around Australia with their drone and they h...

Those Golden Beach numpties should be ignored.

The mouth moving further south reduces the current velocity along that eroding stretch.
Absolutely.
Although they also paint a picture of the surf rolling up across the road into their properties.
Which from what I can see isn't going to happen.
