Surf trip description:

OZ East Coast

 

 

 

When arriving at Sydney with the van after 3000kms criss-cross along the east coast the question was: Has it been worth all the expense and struggle doing a trip half around the planet? Well, to be honest, I don't know until now...but the more it gets to the past, only afterglows kept in mind. All the bugs and moskitos that tumbled to the ground hit to death by our smokey coil are forgotten. Memories on B-double-semi monster trucks overtaking in the darkness at oncoming traffic are fading away.

What's left in mind as it was no more than a day ago is the great landscape down the coast from Bundaberg to Bondi Beach and all the friendly people my wife Marianne and me met along the way. Not a whiff of localism appeared but only sporty competition.

 

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

 

After a 30-hour flight from Frankfurt to Dubai, Singapure and Brisbane we picked up our prereserved campervan and went up the sunshine coast with stops at Mooloolabah, Alexandra Headlands, Coolum and Noosa.

As we decided to go to the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef the next stop was the Bundaberg area. The swell was very small so we abandoned the plan to go further north to Agnes Water. At Moore Park and Eliott Heads we found nice places to stay and at Bargara a couple of waves have been ridden. 

 

Heading south again we made a longer stop at Rainbow Beach. All the way from town to Inskip Point is seamed with bushcamps right at the beach inviting us to stay a couple of relaxed days with surf and wildlife. A short trip with the barque to Fraser Island brought unforgettable impressions.

So far we had enough wilderness and it was only consequent to step into the Gold Coast with the world famous Surfers (Paradise) Hell with a big step forward, but as fast as we went in town we got away.

At home we have galores of this kind of mass tourism cities so it's not necessary to waste time at Down Under with it...Unfortunately, it was the second day of consecutive bad weather plus high wind so Buleigh Heads, Currumbin as well as Kirra Point had all been too rough and high for me. To make matters worse it was weekend so the breaks were full of kamikazes ready to risk their neck for a ride. After all we found a relaxed place at Fingal Head overlooking the coast back up north with all those high surf hot spots.

 

 

Well, the highlight of our tour was still to come as we visited our friends Gay and Ken and the kids in their home at Cabarita Beach. It was our first get-together since more than ten years, so the mood was unbeatable. While Ken and me dropped into a couple of walls at the point, the wives had to talk a lot....

Just in time Kana Loa sent a nice swell and dropped the wind so a clean 4 feet wave (hawaiian sized) peeled in so we had a great time at the beach and later on at night with a "australian" BBQ - means just enough to feed the uptown, too.

Cabarita at it's best!

 

All good things have to come to an end, so leaving Cabarita was a little sad.

Heading south to Evans Head we passed melodic names like Pottsville, Byron Bay, Snapper Rock, Lennox Head and Ballina. All those places are worth to stay for a week but time was running through our fingers, so it was only four days for the whole stretch.  Evans Head was like coming home for us, even though we never been there before. The place has similar conditions to Les Cavaliers in Anglet/France, so it was a jump-in-and-feel-well session. When leaving Evans Head I felt sure to come back one fine day!  Just a couple of kms south we drove into the Bunjalung NP 'cause after two weeks of Sunshine-Gold and Tweed Coast we sought some wilderness and got not disappointed by the beauty of this section of lonesome coastline.

We almost forgot time and tide and suddenly we realized that we will run short with the couple of  days left to go down to Sydney and get our flight back home.

Sadly we cancelled a longer stop at Coffs Harbour so we missed Wannasurf member Reggie6966 - sorry but we surely stopover next time!
Like Coffs we found a dozen other places worth to stay longer, Port Macquarie, Bonny Hills, Forster, Shelly Beach, Avoca...and...and...and.

Description:

We left Shelly Beach in the morning and made our way through masses of villages surrounding Sydney. Our decision was to go to Manly. Ken gave me that great hint to stay there with the camper van and explore Sydney by ferry. After 3-4 days next to flatness the promised swell hit the coast so I decided to catch some waves before going to the city - but prior to this there was another challange: Parking at the beach is a hassle. First there is no free lot and second You have a limited time to stay. As I wanted to surf for more than 30 minutes I left the car far away from the beach and took a walk down. The session was okay but the break was crowded. Friday afternoon was the wrong time to take a lonesome ride.

Description:

After two days of next to nothing the small waves at Shelly Beach gave us hope the forecast which promised more was right. Again it was a day with too much wind from north/east so the waves haven't been really good. We drove to Avoca to have a look but it was even worse, so we went back to Shelly and trie4d to catch a wave there. In the evening at the caravan park I searched the beachside of the place for an exit directly to the beachfront but all I found was a sign with the following inscription:

"Jump the fence and You will be asked to leave..."

Totally hot sun plus a small swell. The wind dropped since yesterday at Bonny Hills so we got clean waves. Unfortunately the sets came in every 10-15 minutes only. Glassy lightgreen walls but a bit too small...Outlook is for 1-2 days flatness so we went around the Smiths Lake to Seal Rocks on a f*****g dirt road and then to Nelson Bay. All we found was not enough to make a session out of it.

Nobody there but me in the mornig, but too much onshore wind for the small waves.
Very bad conditions, no ride longer than 10-15mtrs. The swell dropped to 1/3 of the size after the weekend. The weather report gave outsight for less waves, with a hope for better swell not before thursday. However - Bonny Hills is worth a look. Nice landscape and a small caravan parc up the hill overlooking the beach - great!

Catching waves together with friends is always smashing. But this session was really something special! Ken and me met at Anglet/Les Cavaliers in the mid 90's. He lived in Great Britain that time and moved to OZ a couple of years later. Contact never abandoned and so it was the highlight of our 2007 east coast tour to meet him and his family at Cabarita. We went out late saturday afternoon at glassy conditions so the break was packed with borads. It was really hard to catch a wave but Ken and his friends gave a couple of nice walls to me. It was a pleasure to take a ride together with real sportsmen - unforgettable!

I was late afternoon and the wind didn't allow cleaner sets, so it was only a short session just to get wet after atwo days in the "jungle".

As we arrived at Evans Head I suddenly felt like I have been here before.
At second view, I found many things - landscape, harbour jetty, wave direction - similar to my favorite break at Anglet/Les Cavaliers!
Matching to this impressions weather and wave quality was top so it was the best day of the trip so far. We met a couple of locals from our age so it was a long talk after a long session.

From Bribie Island we went along the Gold Coast to Surfers Hell. As we saw the skyline it was clear not to waste too much time with overdeveloped cities. Also the weather went even worse so it was no good idea to paddle out at any spot around town. We found better conditions at Fingal Head but it was not worth a long disquision.

Bribie Island may be not that good idea on this saturday afternoon. Bumpy wind and a very small swell made it totally nonsense to unpack the board and walk the 500m from the campground to the beach. As chargeback we found great company at the camp kitchen. A real Ozzy BBQ with over 10 families and we in the middle of it - unforgettable!

No way to get a wave at Fraser this day. The whole coastline was a misty curtain and the closeouts breaking 500m out told me: stay out! So we went inside the rain forest and viewed around the beauty of nature. Overnighting at Fraser was not planned 'cause we had to leave our camper back on the mainland. So we went back to Inskip Point with the last barque.

It's a sunday and lots of weekend visitors fill the beach and the water.
The beach guard closed the only surfable jetty for surfers due to lots of bathers.
Close to sundown they all went out and there was a little time to ride the small waves.
As it looks like the swell gets poorer day by day I cancelled desicions to go further north to Agnes Water, instead it's now back down south to Sunshine Coast. But before we go a one day "without surf" break is made to visit the turtle center of Mon Repos.

Description:

Second day at OZ and too late in the water! At 10 in the morning it too much UV rays outside so I interrupted the session after 30 minutes. Next time I go early mornings or close to sunset. Also the windjagged waves haven't been worth to risk a sunburn.
