  7. Currarong Beach NSW

    Glad you liked it. Did you go all the way past the headland (where the beach changes shape and consistency) It works in a N.E er when seven mile is at all the wrong angles
  8. Kite and buggy storage

    I take the rear wheels off the buggy and hang it from "bike hooks" in the ceiling - they take up less floor plan that way. I also have a cupboard, that would be just "hanging space" if you put clothes in it, packed neatly with kites and kite related stuff (harness etc)

    try taking all the spaces out of the URL. Google maps and Extreme Kites seem to disagree about things, so I added the spaces. There is a dirt track off the road to Currarong (which is at the co ordinates in the url). There is a car park and a track down to the beach. It is definitely a two person job to get my large buggy back up from the beach to the car park (I had my wife with me to help out). Next time you are down that way, check it out for NE winds tending Northerly

    That's why I migrated down to Hammerhead last weekend - the beach is at a different angle to the prevailing winds and if the wind becomes a bit more northerly then the beach accommodates the upwind leg a lot better. put this into google maps for a location h t t p s://w w w . g oogle.com.au/maps/@-34.9955245,150.7880225,18.25z

    Was there on the weekend, but the wind was more for hammerhead point. I could see beach all the way south from the surf club to the breakwater

    Had a great solo session on Saturday at Hammerhead Point - the wind was just about perfect for runs both north and south of the point. Not too many people to dodge around as well as a couple of eagles and large gulls that floated in the breeze as well. Pulled the pin on Sunday in an attempt to get home during daylight hours. Now I just need to clean the gear and pack it up again until December

    So you'll be joining us at Seven Mile on the Sunday ?
  14. Sydney Guys

    Looking at those charts, I think I'll start at the Shoalhaven Heads Surf Club at 3pm on both Saturday and Sunday and see if we can buggy towards the river mouth or need to move to hammerhead pt for a beach run.

    Looking at http://www.myweather2.com/City-Town/Australia/New-South-Wales/Nowra/14-Day-Forecast.aspx and it seems reasonable for Saturday and/or Sunday Anyone else interested in a run on Seven Mile beach
