Yeah cool thread idea!
I got so many having spent so much time over the years on a beach in one way or another. Be it fishing or paddling into the waves.
A couple .....
in NSW (forget the place)


At Knights on our Sth Coast

And seconds later


And then there's fishing... another post maybe later.

nice Knights shots there Tim, I grew up BB'g there with my mates, Its funny how a beach changes over time, everyone talks about how it doesn't break like it used to, we don't get the same sort of long period swells we used to, its a bit hard to compare though when your trying to judge something from when you were 15 to now, but im pretty sure they(south coast) don't get those big long period south swells as much, seem to get more westerly swells nowadays, a good indicator is how Shark Alley never brakes any more, we used to BB there so much between 94-98, now its unheard of, I think it broke once last winter!.

yep TS that shot is North Shore HAW, have a friend living in Honolulu so had to visit :p

I have a mate with thousands of amazing shots of beachy/surf stuff, on my HDD now, but will try to get permission to post them first

here's a little spot up north a bit from Me

Campfires are written into the rule book Aaron! Have em at home quite a lot and always on the beach,
as is a brew of some description as the sun sinks away.
I remember camping at salt creek as a storm came in off the ocean with a guster that was savage. I was in the swag under my 4WD but my mate had bought this new tent and set it up. The ponderosa we called it. I awoke to screaming "help me ya *******s" and as I awoke I saw the wind start to lift his tent and blow it across the sand past me. I grabbed the tent as it went past and being firmly wedged under the car managed to hold it. But I was laughing so hard I nearly ****ed my pants, I really should have let him roll on up into the dunes LOL LOL. It still remains one of the funniest things I have ever seen.
The ponderosa was never quite the same and the stories from the rest of that weekend are best not repeated here. Ah good memories, haven't been out like this for a few years. "Wistful thoughts"
ANyway don't often have the cam with me on fishing trips, bit stupid hey but a few Aaron.

Down at Cape Jervis at early moring hours


At salt creek don't rememebr when.


My beloved Rapid Bay Jetty ruined by wowsers and rules


Ah living on the beach - fantastic. My dog goes with me whenever its legal and then quite often when its not. Still nothing is illegal till ya get caught. wink

Thought I might contribute some of my pics that I took last year when we were in Sydney with Dad. We went for a walk all the way from Clovelly Beach to Bondi Beach, so here are a couple of my snaps from along the way:

A view to the north along the coastline from where we began. Bondi is still another 2 or 3km past that furthest cliff you can see jutting out, so it gives you an idea of how far we walked.


Bronte Beach, one of the smaller beaches on the way.


A wave near Bondi. That water was so nice.


Me enjoying the scenery at Bondi. It was amazing how many people were there!!

So there ya go. It was a nice warm and sunny day, so perfect beach weather. Had some huge storms that night too, which was a plus smile

That is a gorgeus right hander. Its pitching in an interesting way. Does it really suck up on mid to low tide? It looks very sucky as there isn't much crest to the peak there.

Awesome shot, I've really got to make my way across there one day. Does it ever get crowded?

REPLY TO Stokie-

its a bit of a funny place over here, crowds are measured by numbers in the handful, the locals around here get funny if there's more than 3 people in the car, its always courteous to paddle out in shifts when there's a few in the water anyway, coz you know its going to be pumping all day wink

my tip, surf as early as you can, as most of the locals wont get down to the beach till 8-9

haha yeah I figured it would be something like that. I only ever surf either by myself or with my bro (whos not really as keen as me), so I doubt that should be a problem. The problem for me is just finding the time to make it all the way over there.
