If heading south from Sydney turn left at Lindays land just south of Albion park. Follow that road for a km or two, then turn right at Addison Street. Follow for a minute or so until you come across Wentworth street in the main part of town, turn right there. Turn left at Darley street then immediately turn right at Boolwaroo Parade( this turns into Bass point tourist road) Continue for a few kilometres and turn left into the dirt road just past the gate to the national park. Park down the bottom near the Jetty and follow the track to the end of the point. Redsands should be straight in front of you. If its a great day you'll see me charging and dominating the pack.If its only 5foot you'll see the peak infested with kooks.

Reddies likes big southeast swells and mid tides to get the rights cranking.SW/S winds. Light westerly is fine as well.East swells and northeast swells are also great and gets the lefts pumping, though the rights still remain good.

I also know of a spot further down the coast called Blenders. This is an epic wave. I used to OWN the lineup and Reddies until I discovered this spot. For your information Blenders makes Redsands/ Ours/ Shark Island look like a mal riders paradice.

Also, I'll be giving a everyone a heads up before the next good swell at reddies. Check back here for regular redsands forecasts!

mr king firstly you dont dominate any breaks on the coast of this country i do bigwayne shortboard phenomenon long board guru and no longer comp director to the unruly lower class i have seen you and your pathetic domination of this so called break you obviosly have been turfed out from so i will make this as painless as possible for you kingy the only reason that you give out this info is that you have or are about to be "spoken to" by the locals there and got booted now i have the biggest ego on this poor excuse for a forum so step back and let me "school" you on how this works never and i mean never let out these secret spots on the intraweb that is seen to be a little silly from anybody and {i should know about silly} mate you have marked your self so get ready for what comes your way oldmate this rant i mean comment was autherised by his highness bigwayne

let me "school" you on how this works never and i mean never let out these secret spots on the intraweb

By: "bigwayne"

wayne considering bodyboard comps were held there at least as early as 2001, it was on an online guide to surf locations in the illawarra well before that and any day there is even a HINT of a wave there at least 10 or 20 guys will be watching from the hill (many with video cameras), it is safe to say that redsands is NOT a secret break.5-10 years ago it was possible to get an hour to yourself most days if you wanted to paddle out in the pitch black before sunrise, these days though there will be several carloads of bodyboarders waiting in the carpark for the first hint of light and by the time the sun rises there will be at least a dozen in the water if the waves are any good. Seriously it has got to the stage where road signs might as well direct motorists there from the highway.

The situation is no different at most of the other heavier waves from shellharbour to kioloa, it merely reflects a growing number of surfers and bodyboarders competing for a small number of quality reef breaks. From my observation it seems that many standup surfers are more interested in the heavier reefs than they were 5 years ago which is also contributing to the increasing crowds. while sites like swellnet and coastalwatch do tell everyone what size swell and direction to expect, at the end of the day its just the fact that there are too many of us looking wanting our share of scarce tube time that is the problem. A few back to back world wars, a black plague outbreak and a couple of nukes dropped on sydney is what's required to see empty redsands again. now if you'll excuse me i'm off to see how the bubonic plague culture is going..........

Bigwayne, The fact of the matter is, I'M the Redsands local here.I HAVE NOT been booted from the break i've called home since I was 11. Given my experience i'm the one who has the privilage of booting fucksticks from Redsands because they're not good enough. Theres a large chance I've seen you at reddies, and theres a large chance i've sent you to the shoulder because you're not good enough. Come to reddies on the next 10ft day and i'll show you where to go. Just look for the orange haired man that's dominating Miller/ Lester etc......

it's all good shaun, i've got a plan..... the more of all your time i can waste reading these forums, the less time that leaves for making babies. Less babies now = less stoked groms in 2027, meaning that heading towards 2030 i may once again be able to enjoy some uncrowded surf on the south coast. Unfortunately by then i'll be far too old to surf heavy waves making the whole excercise rather pointless. time for plan B.........

okay, i've got it. I will enforce a 9-5 working week monday to friday, with only 4 weeks a year annual leave. Having such little available free time should leave everyone with far too little energy to check the surf. Pay rates will be innsuficient to allow travel other than by pushbike. Oh wait, thats already in existence and it has not eased the surf crowding situation.

it seems the only solution is to litter as much as possible and leave every available electrical appliance turned on 24/7. avoid the use of ethanol in vehicles and protest against the use of generating electricity by any means other than coal fired power stations. If we all work together and implement these simple everyday measures we can accelerate global warming and the associated sea level rises, causing inundation of new coastline and giving us all the chance to find new SECRET spots. When this occurs i promise not to reveal that Mount Cannobalas is a sweet offshore bombora, at least not until it gets crowded.

you're totally missing the obvious fact that "big wayne" and his "long board" (compensating for something??) is clearly an old has been who probably needs his walking frame for the path out to reddies, while with his lack of a grasp on the english language "Foamballpilotking" is clearly just some bored teenager with too much time on his hands, and a lack of parents willing to drive him to check the surf.

Well okay KFC and a generous serving of home brew. your longboard should prove more suitable for the kiddies pool than my bodyboard, hell if a few of the bigger kids jump in you may even be able to recapture your youth by shooting the curl on a few "boomers". Either way at least you won't have to worry about the abrasive nature of churning sand particles on your frail old skin. Don't forget to slip, slop, slap though.

sorry jaffa it seems they have been otherwise occupied, quite possibly dominating the peak at redsands despite the atrocious conditions undoubtedly prevailing over the last few days. Perhaps they are like those protesters who climb up a tree and refuse to come down for fear of the tree being felled? Maybe they fear that if they are not there to insult everyone else's wave riding ability every time there is a sign of oscillation in the pacific ocean that they will lose status in the crowded lineup and will have to spend what has apparently been many decades in bigwayne's case regaining the unquestioning respect of the masses. Foamballpilotking being the ageless super grommet he is will have no trouble inspiring awe to anyone witnessing his display of deep, fully commited tube riding and massive aerial maneuveres - so the occasional abscence from the redsands lineup when he is surfing blenders will go largely unnoticed.

Today i feel compelled to dredge up this topic again, much in the same way as a thick redsands lip dredges up the water in front of it. This urge was brought on by the sad realisation that lately i have been spending far too much time weighed down by the workload at the office and not enough pinned to the rocky, sea urchin infested bottom out at redsands. it's such a shame that us taxpayers have to fund the pensions of those that should have hung up the longboard and been euthanased years ago (you know who you are), if the government cut down on spending it may be affordable to work 4 days a week, leaving an extra day to sample the watery delights of breaks such as redsands. Other ways in which the government could save money include automatically refusing entry to "assylum seekers" (lets call them what they are - trespassing criminals), eliminating the need for expensive detention centres in the process. This rant was brought to you by the disgruntled racist employee formerly known as scoopmaster.

I feel your pain scoopmaster. Perhaps like myself you could pursue a career in bodyboarding. Sure it takes a while to earn a name for yourself and convince sponsers to throw som some serious coin your way( in the meantime pokies are a reliable source of revenue) But once your set up it allows you to chase epic big swells across the globe.

I haven't been real active on this forum lately as I was getting some late season North Shore action and then catching the first swells of the indo season. The full moon provided a fun session at The Box last week until it got overrun by kooks and their contest.

Well guys, it appears the long range forecasts are showing a juicy swell for late Sunday into Monday and Tuesday. The outlook is tricky at this stage , mainly because our sheep friends could block most of the fetch.

We could see wave heights anywhere from 4-6ft, to 10-12ft. Now ,if the first scenario comes into play, every fruitdick and his dog will be surfing reddies. We ALL know how much kooks love slightly overhead reddies, if you're reading this you're probrably one of those kooks( except for you scoopmaster) . They'll get a fun 4ft barrel thinking they own the place, but in my book, Redsands isnt Redsands unless its atleast double overhead. If the latter scenario comes into play, theres NO doubt , the KING will put on an amazing specticle. Scores of people will gather on the hills watching the KING send in Andrew Lester and the Player sisters . Scores of people will enjoy the best tube riding and ariel maneuvers this planet has to offer. Im expecting a large crowd, so how about we organise a sausage sizzle on the hill at reddies hey scoopmaster?

scoopmaster Saturday, 30 Apr 2011 at 6:44am

Just a quick note to let you guys know that there will be no sausage sizzle at reddies tomorrow, so you will all need to bring a picnic basket along with your video cameras. Unfortunately it is too difficult to find the motivation to go to redsands tomorrow following the horrendous experience of checking it today. Sure graham miller looked to be enjoying the 2 foot conditions on offer but the pack of 8 groms and a few older guys checking it were quite offputting. If there is to be ANY good waves this swell (and i'm not confident) it will be on monday when i'll be at work anyway. Perhaps if foamballpilotking has had some success on the pokies he may have the fuel money to drive there for a session.

if anyone has any doubts as to the popularity and media coverage surrounding redsands one has only to look at fluidzone.com - 2 of the recent galleries "Leite feat Neto" and "red-daze" are both redsands. And there has been many other shots of reddies on both swellnet and fluidzone, i just can't be bothered looking for them right now. Seriously it must be the fourth most photographed wave in australia, only (just) behind the superbank, cape solander and shark island.

I suppose I have have to take my share of the blame for the overcrowding at Redsands Scoopmaster and for that I apologise.

I'm not talking about how I posted directions to this break on the forum more just how legendary my performances out in the lineup are. Kooks hear of my reputation and figure they maybe able to bask in my reflected glory. Little do they realise I'll take EVERY set wave leaving them to fight over the scraps. I'm a surprisingly quick paddler so even if its a two wave set and I take the first one I will commonly have returned to my position DEEP behind the peak in time for the second wave at least on the longer period groundswells that I prefer.

These pathetic 4ft southswells have given my plenty of opportunity to reinvest my competition winnings. Shunning traditional investments such as real estate, shares, and super annuation much like my bodyboarding my investment strategy is also high risk. As we all know high risk equals high rewards. Theres nothing like picking a number on the roulette wheel and slappng several grand on. I'm not one of those soft bastards that picks just red or black. In between swells( ie nearly always) I can commonly be found in the high roller room at the crown casino mixing it with the other whales.

I have no doubt that were you among the competitors, not even mike stewart could match your experience and fearlessness in riding through those thick shallow tubes. Am i correct in assuming that you continue to shun this event due to contest organisers insisting in holding the event in june, when your preferred north - east swells are far less likely???

Don't much care for Redsands, perhaps because it's towed by non-locals at 6ft.. Maybe Pines will set up a surf school out there soon?

Don't like crowds? Drive straight past the Shellharbour turn off.
