    Buzzy, 1km is probably about right, maybe 800m, anyway this is not from Saturday, this is from a stormy day where it was only 6-7' (last round of NE cyclone swell) so on Saturday I expect it would have been bigger though possibly still wind affected, but it is one of those "local secrets" in the Shire every man and his dog knows about it and if the swell is up on the weekend it gets very crowded. Once every 10 years it breaks like Kirra (or maybe once every 20 years) but you have to catch the tide just right.

    Jase, my best bet is that spot is around 1 kilometre from the ocean, so not bad going! Most exposed coast was virtually unsurfable last Saturday in Sydney. I was certainly surfing a spot in Sydney harbour.

    Ah yes, not so secret. I can see where that wave is behind. I was imagining you had a south coast river to yourself. I saw some photos of Neilsen looking nice - but crowded, on Saturday.

    Not really all that secret and I never got the chance to check it on Saturday but it is a fickle place it needs a low incoming tide to suck the swell up the river otherwise it can be a very fat wave, even 4' and you still can't catch them on a shortboard, mals and SUPs only

    Nothing to be jealous of this day.

    Oh, and I am jealous of your secret river mouth knowledge too.

    There was no shelter yesterday, but it was still a better wave than my surf at Maroubra on Thursday arvo. The wind today was pretty crazy onshore. Im holding out for tomorrow and doing some location research on the forecast conditions for a quick trip out of town on Monday - possible for E Pt - as well as crossing fingers that the outside banks at Tama might be ok.
    2 hours less driving means more surf time.

    Yeah I thought of Boneyards today, might have been the only spot with a bit of shelter, but sounds like it wasn't. I know a few breaks inside rivers that might have had some shelter too.

    I wish I could say my drive down to Boneyard yesterday resulted in a similar quality of wave.
    On the other hand, I only needed 1/2 of my fingers to count the other surfers.

    How is the current !!!...I reckon if you got 2 good waves a session you would be stuffed. Makes me see the value of a ski in those conditions to get the most out of it.
