Soth Coast NSW December 2008

Broken Head to Sydney November 2008
Hello our dear family and friends, Greetings from South coast NSW. Lack of internet opportunity and electrical storms have hampered us blogging. On our previous blogg we were in Broken head northern NSW. We ended up spending a great 3 weeks here. We got 4 mid-large swells and surfed twice a day which was great. We got unreal beachies and The Pass @ Byron up to 5ft. Melis surfed with Danny Wills a couple of times and was in heaven. The Pass even served Melis up a couple of barrels!!
The social east coast continued as we caught up with Robyn, Chris, Bethany, Josh and Tassie Nicols. I even managed to get Robbie to Tandem surf @ The Pass with me!! The Family Poole: Nick, Jo, Georgia, Lucy, Ben whom we caught up with again at Forster. We also had a luxury moment with Peter and Sonia Wu @ The Byron which was lovely. The kids had a blast swimming, hot bath, Lollies, green hair and fun. Great to see you Son and Pete! We were also stoked to have a surf and beer with Troy Wilkinson and Heath Punshon (Plague) and of course the Family Zoric which was unreal.
After a reluctant exit from Broken we head down the coast, visiting Illuka, Yamba, Angourie, Broomes Head. The rain was torrential and the surf not flash. Onward we head for Coffs Harbour and "sunny Sawtell" where we had an awesome couple of days with our great traveling buddies Kaz, Scotty, Jake and Archie. We had a blast including Bootcamp and surfing sessions. Piper and Jake got some great waves! Piper also did the Ripcurls Girls day with Lee Winkler ( ex-pro) which was great. Went to the Pet porpoise pool and we all got to kiss Seals and Dolphins!! The visit to the Big Banana at Coffs was also an absolute must.
Off south we head. Spent a great week at Crescent Head where we lucked into 5-6ft swell first day. The next couple of days it dropped a foot or two but improved in quality and we all had great waves here. Even when the Point stopped breaking we had unreal beachies. Love the place. Lots of exploring the area too up to Hat Head and South West Rocks which were stunning.
Through Port Macquarie onto Forster. We ended up ¾ hour south of Forster @ Treachery Camp near Seal rocks. On arrival we again bought the rise in swell and Harry lapped up 5-6ft offshore, beachies. The private bush camp was unreal here. Camping just off the dunes with goannnas, snakes and Dingos everywhere. Open fires and plenty of rain. We met some unreal people here including Darren Oates who was raising money for Starlight Foundation by walking and surfing the coast between Tweed and Sydney. Lots of great tales, waves and laughs were had. We copped some crazy weather here. Lighting storms for 48 hours straight, Rained and rained and rained. See pics.
From the bush to Sunny Sydney. We stayed @ Narrabeen which was great. We spent the day in Sydney catching the ferry from Manly we went and saw Santa at David Jones, went to the top of Centrepoint Tower (79 stories) walked the Harbour Bridge. Had a beer at the Australian Hotel, walked the Opera House, caught a ferry to Neutral bay and caught up with our buddies Weiry and Mandy. No pics as the camera had run out of juice.
Now we find ourselves in Lake Tabourie 10km south of Ulladulla. Looking forward to a great couple of weeks before we complete our loop of oz.
A special to Thanks to our generous new friend Paulyne whom assisted us to north Sydney and onto meet Weiry and Mandy. Thank you for your offer to stay and Cremorne Point and Katoomba in the Blue Mountains.
Until next time Love and Chrissie smailes to you all.
Harry, Melis, Piper and Marlon.
