Up the coast

Posted by: on September 5th, 2013

Hello Friends,

Woke up to some fun-size mainly east swell in Crescent Head this morning. 20+ people in the water at the point as the sun cleared the horizon so, with the threat of stiff north wind on the cards, our local host suggested we look south along the road to Plomer. Turned out to be a good idea because there were any number of options in various north corners. We ended up past Plomer tucked in against a headland where we were well protected from any north wind, but still exposed to the swell. Tide was pretty full to begin with, but we all got fun lefts and rights in the chest to shoulder plus range.

I had the waterproof camera with me, but being beachbreak, I didn’t really get anything much of interest. I shot a little video, but I haven’t checked to see how it turned out. Maybe later. We’re setting a hectic schedule: wake up, surf, eat, nap, surf again, bbq, sleep.

Swell up this way was around the 2 metre mark from the east at about 10 seconds, down in Sydney swell direction is also east, but it’s not quite a metre at 10 seconds, so I would expect magnet spots to be around the waist to waist plus mark.

It looks as though tomorrow in Sydney will see the energy levels drop a notch, so those magnets may be knee to waist. Wind may be a bit more favourable as it should move from the present northerly more to the NW.

Have yourself a top old Thursday!
