Comment: "A left and right beach break breaking over sand. Can be a fun wave but generally the swell hits the beach very straight and results in close outs. My favorite waves here have been in "Stormies", which are a mixture of long range groundswells and local windswell. These are usually a result of strong onshore winds that actually make the wave more peaky and less close outey. A nor-westy stormie can also be lots of fun as this sends the waves in at a severe angle to the beach which causes a few more makable barrels than a clean swell - this is rare. The three main spots are "The Hump" which is the north end of the beach, "Clubhouse" out in front of the Surf Lifesaving Club basically in the middle of the beach and the rivermouth to the south. This beach can often get more swell than the surounding reefs and can handle the crowds a bit better."

How do we travel?....We have both a 19-seater Coaster bus (for state-wide trips) and a Mitsubishi Fuso Coach (for nation-wide trips) each fitted out with TV and DVD player, awesome sound system ('tis loud!) and we tow a trailer with waterproof, locable canopy and surfboard racks. We are currently purchasing more wetsuits and 35 surfboards so that we have everything we need to have a good day's surfing (....of course, God provides the waves to surf on). For smaller groups, we use our 4x4 Pathfinder to save on fuel (it also provides transportation for all the surf shop requirements). We are currently purchasing a beach buggy to get out onto the beaches and to use for promotional purposes - it will also tow a jet ski. You can bring your own surfboard on our trips if you are already a surfer.
How to contact us?....Either phone Luke on 0403134478 or Pastor Neil Aitchison on 0410725792, or you can email us if you want more information about this ministry.
