- Mushy

Waves Shape:
- Close out

Description:

I don't understand why anyone would contribute to this website. Spots like this used to be a guarded secret, shared with only a few who were capable and cool enough to respect tradition and not tell the world.

Today this spot (which you've named incorrectly) is crowded and frequented by kooks. I hope that you will all take a good long think before deciding to "share" surf spot information with others.

In the meantime if I see any of you misguided "sharers" out at any secret spot I frequent with a camera -- I WILL RUN YOU OVER.

This is not an act of aggression, it is protection in the same vein that Greenpeace takes on to save whales.

Lots of dolphins appeared before and after we were in the water. Hard to see them when we are surfing though.

Chilly Willy out there this morning. Water temp has dropped to 54F due to upwelling caused by the El Nino storm pattern over SOCAL producing strong surface winds.

After and hour and a half I was as stiff as a board, the early morning gloomy fog and offshore breeze did not help!

Waves were just close out: Now I know why La Gironde is a good place to surf.

Smallest session for a while now, we've been hit with such good conditions lately, and the SUN! 

 From the looks of the pushing tide, morning surf, our options will be limited the next 2 days on the surf. But it will be a good opportunity to go climbing! We've been loaned a climbing guide and Milena came with all her equipment, so we will check out some routes. Apparently there are some near doniños!

Then it will be ON again. Picking up Tuesday nite, and into the weekend! Holla!

Dolphins came to say bye bye to philipp this morning. A new school arrived, and I hope that they stick around!

Description:

I had just moved to the Eyre peninsula for work and was mainly surfing the southern reefs like Flatrock, Monument and Sheringa but they were a 3 hour drive. After a solid session at Flatrock I was driving home along the Lincoln Hwy and saw white water just past Arno Bay. I drove down a short track and to the coast and located 2 reef set ups at Red Banks. They were not surfable, only about 1 foot but they had potential in a huge swell. Early May a 6 metre plus swell hit the S.A. The winds were NW, so on my day off I went and checked Red Banks. Not expecting more than a 2-3 foot fat reef wave I pulled into the empty carpark and I was greeted with 3 maybe even 4 foot right hand slabs barrelling across the reef and spitting. I was stoked, no way I expected any kind of decent surf this far up the east coast of the Eyre Peninsula. The wave looked like a mini shark island the way it hit the reef and then slabbed into a super hollow perfect barrel. I ride a bodyboard which was the perfect craft for this wave and proceeded to get small but perfect super hollow barrels without a person in sight, yeew.

Description:

Went out on a stunning Sydney Autumn afternoon with another mate, we're both amateurs/ man grommets which is why we chose a small day as our baptism at the bower. There were two paddle surfers, a guy riding a mal, a guy in a kayak and a Brazilian guy on a short board who was also out there for the first time and me and my mate on a fish 6'8"and epoxy 6'8' respectively.

It was just about bang on high tide, but you could tell it wasn't a very high high-tide, as the water mark was visible on the rocks on the point. (I've just checked the tide reading was 1.4m, and it can get up to 1.7m)

 For high tide I was surprised how shallow the water was. This is also due to the fact that as it was so small, we just paddled from Shelley beach out through the break. I can't imagine that you would do this with any size about. In any case, we paddled out and I could touch the bottom easily where we were waiting for waves. 

 

Finally a wave came through that hadn't been snaffled by one of the other longer more adapted surf craft to the conditions, and it was good quality. It was small but a clean little face to follow and presumably do something on if I knew how to surf well.  We'd surfed North Steyne earlier in the day and the lines were so square with the Easterly swell that it was closing out perfectly, so this was a welcome change.

 

I caught two other nice mellow waves which were perfectly adapted to my level. The take off was very smooth with a shoulder and plenty of time to get up, relatively speaking. Generally the waves were very mellow as well.

 

Would be interested to surf again in slightly larger conditions to see where the waves break with a bit more size. Some of the rocks just jut out, 10 cm from the surface. I would probably consider a helmet if it was big next time, just to tick all the boxes of man grommetry....

 

The spot itself is breathtakingly beautiful and the paddle out past scuba and snorklers, with people walking by on the promenade, gives this spot a really unique feel. Shelley beach has the advantage of catching the very last rays of western sun as well. Manly gets dark about 15 minutes earlier due to the buildings and trees obstructing the light.

The unofficial language of Shelley beach is French by the way. It seemed every time I overheard anyone speak on the walk out there, it was in French. Vive la France!!

Surf checked Campelo in the morning but it was close to flat. No one is prepared to ride the minimals yet, so we went back to the house to surf the homebreak. 

 Some current, and the wind is less than yesterday, the sun even came out, but it was so so. 

 Getting the arms back and going to Doniños in an hour for light off-shore beautiful waves!
