The fun right-hander of Killcare, NSW Central Coast
Easter is a time to get away from work and head off up the coast with family. I was fortunate enough to be holidaying on the NSW Central Coast at a little spot called Killcare, which was to be a brilliant launch spot for some serious paddle surf adventures. Except that the damn surf disappeared for most of the weekend! Still, there plenty of fun to had in the boats with friends and family. Cheers, FP
On arrival the surf at Killcare looked promising, until 40knts of wind arrived
By the time the next day dawned, someone had flattened out the ocean
Local outriggers hit the water to take advantage of the easy ocean conditions
From my house on the hill, I watched the paddlers at play
My wife and I paddled inland instead, taking in the stunning Brisbane Waters
In desperation, I even tried to surf the tiny little shore breaks on the beach!
The evening moon was incredible as we all head off to bed
The following dawn I arrived early at the Ocean Beach SLSC
The promise of a wave from the Ocean Beach SLSC locals had me excited
Grimmo and Freddy from the Ocean Beach SLSC lead me out to the “surf”
Out to the ocean side of Box Head, and not a wave to be seen!
Freddy tries to stay upright on the “raging seas”. Ha ha!
Thanks to Freddy, Grimmo, The Ocean Beach SLSC and Grimmo’s ugly crocs for a fun morning on the water
Your’s truly in post-paddle coffee mode at the Ocean Beach SLSC
Time for a final paddle with my Miss6 in Avoca
“Keep your hands in the middle, blade in the water like a spoon”. 5 mins later, paddling like a pro!
A lovely way to finish off the weekend
