Gurus - where should I be SUPing around Sth West Rocks? Horseshoe beach? Hat head? Scotts beach? Help appreciated!
All great spots for SUPs as they aren't short board areas. Scotts can be a great wave and South West Rocks has a wave out near the jail that can run for 500 metres if you've got a race board.
Gods country up there I like straight out of the gaol great paddle, scots is a fabulous wave as well as hat head, can get nuts busy in the holidays but.
If you take off at the main beach in front of pub you can paddle north around the headland and across the creek, this gives you access to a beach that is a couple of km long ( till you get to the rockwall of the Macleay river! This beach has some great banks at times with a sucky break off the creek mouth on the odd occasion. Uncrowded and easy to access! Steve
That creek has lots of interesting bridges and stuff I am paddling it next time i am around.
A 3 min long wave from the breakwall in front of the gaol:
if you want a nice creek cruise paddle then do a little slide paddle up the hat head creek on high tide and after that head to the local bowlo for a cold one and chill out.
KP Ive got my local practice flat water paddle that finishes at the local club, I think this summer the practice paddles are going to end in a daily frothy (perfect for daylight savings), only dilema how to get back to the house/car after.
Do crocs count as shoes?
