On Surfari: Arrawarra on a Saturday morning

Posted by: on May 1st, 2010

Hello Friends,

Well, I didn’t expect to be surfing Arrawarra this morning, but due to a mixup with bookings, we were given the bum’s rush from Broken Head yesterday. So, we fled south to lovely Coffs Harbour to seek a roof over our heads for the evening. Before we left though we spent a couple hours getting hammered in solid 6 to 8 foot face shutdowns at Broken Head. We’d hoped for a better result at low tide, but I guess the banks just aren’t quite set up yet. Still, I did get a few pics of people at higher tide. I’ll post them to a gallery when I get back to Sinny.

Anyhoo, this morning we checked the MHL buoys and saw the energy levels had come up a bit so we wandered down to Arrawarra point with the mals to see if there was anything to cruise. Turns out there was. Nothing amazing, a bit slow and not that consistent, but every now and then a chest high set would come around the point and if one was lucky…
Crowd wasn’t bad for a sunny Saturday morning either, so the lulls were bearable.

A couple hours later, after covering a probably a kilometre in the form of 200m+ rides, we’re fortified for the trip south. Have yourself a top old Saturday, wherever you may find yourself.
