Mitch, you write; "Doggie, had a dabble at the spot you've recommended to me. Pretty fun. Don't even have to drive all the way there, if you know what I mean. Very similar setup to other locations which have the same geographic features, surprise surprise. Definitely gonna go back, cheers. Can't really make it for the next chance you mentioned a few days ago unfortunately, it's just a bit too far under my own steam Mon-Fri."

We're talking south of the free ride paddocks, right?

Did you get my tip the other day re' tomorrow arvo tues morning? Possible long camouflaged ese groundswell? Only 3 foot or so? North of my old suburb? Bigger the further north you go?

As a side note, first up, I just found your house on google maps... Just saying :| Want proof? I'll number something of your choice haha

Anyway, yeah mate, past the paddocks. I did get your tip too btw, I was thinking at the time that the ASCAT passes only showed a fetch cradled inside of the sort of Y shape of the NI. But on review, looks good. But unfortunately 3ft isn't enough to get my tail up there these days. Maybe old mate dro will luck out, sounds like he needs it haha!

Yeah, proof...... Cos the land is separate........ The land is up on G***b***** road, but our house is in town, 10 minute drive away........
We got the land separate .... Was looking at putting a kit home up on the top, selling our home in town and moving up there..... Ran out of money lol.... The house in the photo is not on our block..... The photo is taken from the top of our block looking down to Bruny.... So, Id say you are looking at the neighbours house next to our land.... (BTW - if you are looking at our land, it has 3 sheds, 2 full dams, and a dam that gets dried out by our cheeky neighbour - but thats cool ...its for the sheep and we get free lamb)
Here's another photo from the top, showing our fence line, and a view looking back from the fence to the actual guts of the property. (thats not a houses just behind the dam - sheds - where wellymon can stay, or he can use the other sheds to the left of there :p

ps - I say it with a heavy heart..... But I am looking at selling the land...... I'll cry if we do...... A dream gone.... And it's just so nice pottering around.... The walnut trees have taken off.... :(...... But hey....., Things may change....

Haha in that case, you can rest easy cos I don't know which is your house. So that's why the track to your sheds turns off before the driveway of your neighbours house. Are the sheds in photo 1 and 2 Welly's shack, or bach;)? Can't quite figure out photo 2, the roofs don't quite match. It's nice though, my parents did almost the exact same thing, except they sold up for a property with a house already on it. They just started again with all the trees, had some pecan nuts just yesterday actually, as a sweet, protein rich snack!

Photo 2 is looking "northish"..... The driveway into the property is up near the last bend on the dirt road, where the bottom dam is (plus another little shed).....
Looks like that little long groundswell is creeping in

So what defines the boundaries of properties there? I'm guessing the area has been subdivided, but into a weird grid? it looks like you own property on 2 slopes either side of a bit of a saddle (where photo 1 is taken from). Only a narrow strip along the right in photo 1? And you've got 2 sheds nearby to the left from photo one and to the back right from photo 2.

yeah you're right, it has a pretty decent period. I'd love to have those little patches of rock amognst the sandbanks dialed!

Sheepdog commented Monday, 16 Jun 2014 at 2:56pm

It's pretty hard to see the boundaries, but if you look closely, you'll see them..... Yeah, it's all odd shaped blocks and acreages..... The southern and eastern boundaries are pretty clear. The western boundary runs at a slight diagonal just behind the wellys place (the large rectangular shed), then turns hard left at that big tree, and ends at the next big tree, then runs north to the road..... The property borders the road, and as you follow the road back up (NE), you'll notice a driveway on the left. Just past there you'll see a wnw/ese line..... That's the northern boundary...
Ps.... Wish there was a wave buoy off the point with 2 islands........ a certain back beach would be catching most of this little swell.....

Sheepio, your fucking onto it champ when it comes to forecasting long range swells up here. Let alone googling my shed so Mitch Very Good can come and hang hahah, LOve it.

Hey got up this morn for a little walk with NinjaGirl along Palmy, was shocked to see every so often solid 3 footers, head over head waves breaking on some, very straight, was not from the south more Eastie and seemed like along way away too me as you would know how Palmy faces...
Nice work champ, much respect there ;)

No worries Udo, not sure if the wife will take her :) hahahhaha

Udo I know this is off topic, my apologies thanks to Southey again:)
Had really good feedback from my research at the moment, with the "Hairy Ones"
I have been in touch with DNA hair and saliva specialist from Canberra, as well an Anthropologist and another guy who runs the Australian Ape project from Brisbane. Have sent some awesome photos through that they are pretty gobb smacked from ;)
Sorry fellas off subject, will maybe put them on "WellyMonsters" :)

Don't say the North Island BRO.
Theres someone on here wants to blow it up ;) Why, no idea as Craig explained we would not get strong fetches off the lows if it weren't there...?
It kind of makes sense when you look at the lows that form east of the North Island they dissipate real quick. Which to me looks like a cranking E-NE swell for my favourite spot..... Can never figure that one out...?

Any ideas Sheepio...? As the bottom of the East coast of the Nrth Isle cranks in these swells ;-) No names you will figure with the first Bloggers Wave...?

Well Sheepio, Freeride said a different hypothesis about spinning it more to the nw instead of ne angle..
I barked on that theory but when I think about it, for sure all of the East coast top part of NZ would get wrapping SW swells, food for thought hhahaaha, its too late now tho unless there is a huge eruption, which could happen and it changes dramatically. As well with climate change....? its gonna get warmer over there, us Kiwi fuks will all move back and there will be a Government change in passports to stop all you Great Aussie blokes from moving there. hahhahahhah, Love that
Stirring shit;)
You and MVG are welcome tho, you can both marry my dog....? That I won't have;)

Seriously though Sheepy, they're still out there. Quality waves with very minimal surfers riding them.
I've been to one little island in the Pacific that is a long way from another little island with an airstrip that is the jump off point.
I've seen this particular place in exactly 2 items of surf media and was not named in either... But you just know the Bro- vine is spreading that information. Heart breaking really.

I would've chosen somewhere on the other group, so the swell could get funelled, bent, doubled and wedged! There's probably some really deep water all the way to the edge of some of those coastlines due to tectonic uplift.
