Taking to the sky for another perspective on things. Australia is a large place with lots to explore and infinite wave potential.

WHEN THE DAY WAS DONE

October 14, 2010

LIFE ON THE ROAD

It was cold and it was colder than cold, then it was warm. The waves were not very good at all and then they got better than good. It was a great trip with good people and plenty of moments were captured for your viewing pleasure. Not much longer now and there will be motion to the pictures . . .

OVERCAST

Some more sights from the last few days. Overcast skies and offshore winds have been the go all week but were making the most of the moody conditions.

AS OF YESTERDAY

As previously mentioned, we have been keeping plenty busy with a nice run of swell and more on the way. Here’s a look at the last couple days of our wave hunting adventures. Its been a pretty cold start to spring, but with the cold weather came winter like swells. Lots of waves and very few people kept smiles on the faces all around.

PEELing

Things have been plenty busy with lots of swell. Here’s a part 1 of a lengthy update . Once things slow down wave wise we’ll be able to get back on the regular updates. Until then, mind surf this.  Plenty of action in part 2 . . .

THE SIGHT OF RIGHTS

A fun right sandbar that formed and hung around for a bit and kept us busy.  Speaking of busy, new website and trailer are almost done! On top of that, we’ll be on the road for the next seven weeks to wrap up production so there is plenty coming your way . . .

Kirra Tubes

Kirra time-line

  • Prior to 1840 — Kirra is not known by its current name and is rarely visited by white settlers.
  • 1840-1910 — The first white holiday-makers start to visit.
  • 1910-1920 — Holiday-makers increase, making Kirra a popular recreational beach area.
  • 1930s — The opening of the South coast road increases the popularity of the southern Gold Coast as a holiday destination. Camping was very popular for families because Kirra had a long beach and a low-lying dune system.
  • 1960-early 1974 — The Tweed River breakwaters combine with a series of low-pressure weather systems to result in serious sand erosion. This brings the high-water level to just below the coastal road.
  • 1970s — Big Groyne built at Kirra’s south end.
  • 1995 — 30 metres taken off Big Groyne to help fight erosion at Greenmount Beach.
  • 2001 — Start of Tweed River sand bypass project.
  • 2003 — Little Groyne completely buried in sand.
  • 2006 — Project launched by Griffith University Coastal Management Center to restore the beach
  • 2010 — Kirra remains a mere sliver of its former self but can still provide a perfect racing barrel on its day.

SEA HOLE

Some waves are perfect, others are flawed and this wave is somewhere in between.  No takers this day so Asher Pacey jumped at the chance for a few empty caves.

A MOMENT

HIDDEN GEM

Every surfer dreams of finding a new spot or a secret wave they didn’t know existed. The thought of such a thing is what keeps us searching in spite of the recent technology that has made it easier for everyone to search from the comfort of their home computer. Sometimes its doesn’t take an epic wave to satisfy this notion, just a good old wedging beach break with a few friends. That’s exactly what we found when we set off for a hike down a long path none of us had been down before.

The great thing about Australia is that there are so many headlands and little nooks all along the coast to explore. Being from Southern California, where any bend in the coast is likely to have 44 friendly faces bickering over who had the last set wave, this option to explore untouched places is extremely refreshing.  As we headed down the long slippery, rocky, winding trail, we encountered lots of big hairy spiders and a few snakes. We knew something good had to be at the end of the road with all the hazards involved. There wasn’t a whole lot of swell at first light and the headland we were scoping appeared to stick out a bit like a catchers mitt, hopefully acting as a swell magnet.

After a good 45 minutes of ducking under webs, we got a glimpse of the ocean and to our surprise there was actually some whitewater down in the small cove.  As we got closer we could tell that there was a pretty good right bouncing off the rocks and dumping on the shallow beach. Its hard to tell how big a wave is when you see it from a distance and there is no one out, so we could only guess that it was surfable.  Down on the beach the delightful sight of spitting tubes came time and time again in the same spot and we had a session on our hands.  Exploring can be fun.

WAVE

Although we have seen thousands of perfect waves peel off during the last year of filming, it never gets old admiring the different forms of unique perfection the ocean can create.
