Artificial reef will put us on map
THIS week we saw quite a strong southerly swell hit the coastline and there was at times some real quality beach breaks to be had, although it was in short bursts and hard to pick that perfect wave.
The northern protected corners still seem to be suffering from the amount of sand loss from the heavy north winds we've seen over the last couple of months.
Seeing a few southerlies rolling past our coast is a positive sign for some sand returning and fingers crossed we see more of them this summer season.
The artificial reef concept for the protection of the northern wall seems to be viewed as a potential option and having a credible wave out there for the whole community to use would be a tremendous asset to tourism and trade.
It would put Coffs Harbour back on the map in terms of it being a major travel destination.
