Check out this place it's called Seal Rocks and it's beautiful. We camped on the other side of the point at a place called Treachery Cove. Lovely caravan park and an excellent beach and when we arrived there were dolphins frolicking in the surf. We had a good surf and just got our tucker cooked and it started to piss down rain and we had to finish eating in the front of the ute.
The next day we headed for Crescent Head where I had been given a tip about a good long board wave that I was keen to check out. It turned out to be an excellent tip and I got some really nice waves and it was big enough for Tim to also have some fun. I got into trouble from an angry local who reckoned I had gotten in his way so had my first bit of surf rage. I guess no matter what you do there will always be a mix of personalities to contend with. I was a little put off after this but had already had a pretty good time and decided to call it quits. Met some other really nice locals and one guy who's name escapes me was a bit of a legend and I think the current Australian masters champion.
That night we decide to head for a place called Hat Head as we felt the universe was calling us there to pay homage to one of the local farmers in my area who like a ample sized hat. Or it might have been to give Tim the chance to see how well he could slide on his back in the mud whilst in a hurry to check out the beach.
Due to storms and pissing rain there was no surfing at Hat Head but it was a lovely spot and reasonably quiet although one guy I was talking to in the caravan park said only a week earlier it was packed. The next day we travelled to Angourie and Tim caught some really good wave whilst I decided to get behind the lens as conditions looked pretty challenging. Below is a couple of shots I took during his sessions.
After Tim's surf we travelled north again looking for something for me to surf on and ended up at Byron Bay
where I had a play in the water but nothing to exciting before we headed further North to stay the night with Tim's sister Jess who made us a beautiful vegetarian lasagne for dinner. The next day and a couple more hours in the car and we arrived at Coolum Beach, just a short drive to Noosa where we spent the next week surfing in the National Park there. Lots of people around but luckily not to many where we surfed. I dont have any photos of me surfing so you will just have to take my word for it.
Noosa at sunset, the little spots in the water are surfers.
