rookie looking for help

« on: March 12 2006 17:03:00 »

I am going to be in Melbourne and Sydney in April and March and was looking for some help finding some decent breaks and a place to get a descent board. I have alway done something on a board from wakeboarding to snowboarding, but last year was the first year I was really able to surf. I met some cool guys from OZ that got me into the green waves and was just looking to find a some good places to go. Hope all is well.

Hi. when in Sydney try going South to Cronulla. You can get there by train, just remember to change at Sutherland. If you forget don't worry, there are plenty of surfs down the line. You can get off at Thirroul, Austinmere, North Wollongong, Wollongong and Kiama and walk to the surf. Some trains don't stop at all these. So ask someone on the train. If you decide to get off at W'Gong it is about a 25 minute walk East. If you are driving, there are plenty of beaches. Just ask around or listen to the surf report. The hang gliders at Stanwell Park are pretty good to watch too.

Hi Ben, I forgot to tell you some trains go straight to Cronulla, so you don't need to change. I was there on the weekend, the water was great after the bluebottles went back out to sea. Bronwyn
