The last few days have been somewhat frustrating in my quest for waves. They seem illusive. The wave God has not been my friend.
I have scoured the length of Yuraygir National Park in search of perfection and have not had much luck. I checked Minnie Water, Sandon, and a dozen other spots that I can’t remember the name of.
I decided last night to make the two hour trek back to Shelly Beach where I had such an amazing session only four days ago. I went through the usual routine of getting up early and packing up my bag with the essentials. When I got there I discovered that it really doesn’t work properly on the high tide, and by the time it dropped out enough, the wind had picked up and turned it to mush.
Walking back from Shelly Beach I dropped my phone in the sea! Gutted.
I have had a few ok surfs but nothing epic, so I deemed the time was right to leave the Yuraygir National Park and head up the coast towards Lennox Head to see what it might offer me in the morning.
After my morning surf tomorrow I will be leaving New South Wales and moving north to the Gold Coast, to explore Queensland. I haven’t surfed much of Queensland before and I’m excited to surf all the breaks that I have been watching in surf videos since I was a grommet. The swell forecast is looking great for the weekend and I’m frothing to get into some Queensland magic.
