I need some advice! A mate and myself are time poor surf starved dads and have miraculously have scored a pass out for 5 days at the end of April. We both fairly well travelled and experienced having done some good trips in the past (indo / maldives).
Im in sydney, and he's in Coffs. We are both agonising about where to spend our time - and looking at both crescent head and surrounds, or boomerangs and around there. As we dont know the area im looking for some advice on the best region to go visit for 5 days to get the masximum chance of some decent uncrowded hopefully barreling waves.
Ive heard that crecent is a good wavves, but can be a bit fat, but the back beaches can get real good, also boomerangs and around has some good back beaches too.
Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated.
Well,around Crescent theres a lot of water right now.The run off is dirty brown and is spooky.The point had a pack of bullsharks rip a deadcow apart a couple of days ago(recorded by drone).Steer clear of there.Down the road the floodgates are open at BigHill and its murky too.It takes a while to clear.Crescent and the beaches south have been inundated with visitors since Covid started,its not the quiet isolated backwater it used to be.
Plus, if anyone doesn't already know, they are tarring Plomer Road, putting the cultural sites at risk and opening the doors for development. A sad time indeed. Write to Kemp$ey shire council if you disagree with it.[email protected]
