Snells Beach

4 star rating Windsurfing: Waves

Cold, slightly over powered on 4.5s. Right wind for swell to jump, had to read between waves because they were wind swell and not much room between waves. Lot of fun, lot of wipe outs, Neill tried | more...

Started on 6.4 with 105ltr, needed to let down hall out for some more power 1/2 hour into session and the rest was a blast. Travis - you would have been in your element. Thanx to Neill for suggesting the session and to Paul for the BBQ idea. Not having

andrewr : Have you seen Rob? When I left Martins Bay at 5pm his car was still there - I last saw him sailing towards snells. What's your phone number? Andrew (0277138826)

Mar 2012

wombat : Cheers Scott. Favoured winds or NNE, NE, E, SE. We sail most winds and have recently discovered SW is brilliant if its not to gusty and over 22knts+, Great for speed sailing. Anything from the east is good for BnJ with different tides effecting the condition of the ramps. Some of the guys are now sailing around Kawau Island for adventure. Re the fin size. On very low low tides it maybe an issue but I have sailed that size and walked out a bit further + you have the who;e of the bay to play in. When there are good spring tides its not an issue for a couple of hours around high tide. Best option if you don't like the walk is launch @ 3/4 tide coming in for a good 3 hour sesh. If tide is to low for your liking and the wind is good you can always shoot around to Algies Bay where you launch in front of the boat ramp. About 5 mins away from SB. Hope this is helpful. txt 021 425 941 for 4cast. We have a network up here tween Shakes and Omaha.

Karve : hi Wombat - i am quite keen to come up to Snells for a blast this weekend or the next. i just have a couple of questions about the area. 1. how deep does it get in the bay? from what i have heard it is shallow, is it deep enough for a 56cm fin, have smaller kit but incase i take out the SLW i just need to know if the tide hight would restrict that fin size if i had to go big? 2. also what wind directions are the best, are there any directions that are not worth the trip for. thanks heaps Scott
