Mollymook Beach Waterfront residents visit iconic surfing breaks in the Margaret River area.

The town ship of Margaret River is about 9 Km or so inland from the coastline. It has many surfing breaks up and down the coastline, some breaks are up to a Km off shore and the Bombora’s are well off shore requiring a jet ski to reach.

One local (formerly from Merimbula) said the surf was much bigger this past Saturday. Hard to imagine. It was jaw dropping stuff just watching these that I photographed yesterday, Tuesday. At a guess I would say they exceeded 20 feet / 6 metres in height. A bucket of water is heavy, so imagine the weight of water when one of these waves unloads on you. Big wave riders numbered about 8 at any one time on this Prevelly main break at ‘Surfers Point’ throughout the day. The paddle out was a long arduous effort. The Prevelly ‘Boat-Ramp’ had two main breaks. We also drove to Gracetown and saw numerous softer breaks of various sizes attracting lots of riders including kids about 8 years old.

Blue bottle washed up on Mollymook Beach

Blue bottles have been washing up on our coastal beaches by the bucket loads recently. With their annual arrival, many questions and myths about these creatures seem to be drifting around as well.

What exactly are blue bottles? Do you really pee on their stings? How do you keep a day at the beach from turning into a real pain?

Big D. first to tackle the Mollymook surf break

Monday was the dawning of another typical great day in Mollymook. A beautiful sunrise, ideal surfing conditions for the board riders whilst the swimmers dived in at ‘sooky corner’. Big D. saw the invitation and tried his luck with a ‘racing board’ and may we say successfully escaped getting wiped out. Around the corner at ‘Golfie’ they elected to tackle the surf with more conventional style ‘wave riding boards’ to the delight of the crowded onlookers including Zoe up in the grandstand.       (Click on photos to enlarge)

The ‘East Coast Low’ during the past few days was not as damaging as its predecessor last month and created excellent surf conditions at Mollymook beach as well as the kamikaze surfing break. (Pics taken yesterday, Sunday July 10)              (Click on images to enlarge)
