my rating 3 star rating
Wind Direction: SE Wind Strength: swim   using 5.6 - 6.0m sail. Swell Direction: NE Swell Size: nonexistent Tide: Mid - Rising.

After seeing Anton's post on df suggesting that it could be on and based on what we got yesterday I took a punt and packed the family in the car and headed north to try and score some DTL Jafa style. Spectacular day out there, quite a lot of people on the road so traffic wasn't the best.

Parking was a nightmare too but Nina managed to find a spot on the grass, wind wasn't quite there so we hit the beach in hope of it picking up. The kids had a great time in the sand and surf but the wind never came through as hoped. It teased me a few times with some rooster tails starting to form off the top of some waves but they were short lived.

Shame the wind didn't support my plans, this place would be so fun to sail when the wind/waves are in sync. Shame it's so far, traffic on the way back was much worse with about a 10km tail leading into Warkworth on the way back due to the damn traffic lights.
