The alarm this morning was not at all welcome, so I turned it off and slept some more. A few hours later I crawled out of bed and remembered that I was on a surf trip, and why the hell was I sleeping when there are pumping waves breaking with out me.
I rushed my morning ritual and got to the beach ASAP. Now yesterday I wanted to decide which of the two breaks I liked better, Angourie or Spookies, and which one to surf first? I decided on Spookies as it was that tiny bit closer and it looked pretty good with its hollow punchy right and only two guys out. Angourie could wait until the second session.
While I was in the water I started speaking to a couple of local guys who suggested that I head into the Yuraygir National Park where there are some amazing, uncrowded waves. I was told all you need to do is go and look, and they gave me a few place names before adding “have a good one.”
My surf was good. I had a few barrels that I didn’t come out of and a couple of turns. I got out, made a coffee and prepared to go back in at Angourie. Here I had a sick surf and enjoyed myself immensely.
I still can’t make up my mind on which is better, and it’s time to go and discover new waves, so I will be back to make my final decision at a later date, most likely on my way back up the coast when I go to Queensland next week.
I’m off tomorrow to hopefully find some classics in Yuraygir National Park, so time to stock up on supplies and head on. With a bit of luck I will find enough phone signal to send updates. I’m sure I will get something through.
Meanwhile for now, I have just stumbled across the beach break at Yamba and it looks really fun so I’m gunna jump in.
