Northcott.. .where did the sand go?

Postby Voyager » Tue Jan 09, 2018 7:34 pm

Does anyone surf Northcott? Walked over that way Sunday only to see a ton of rock strata sticking out everywhere, I thought it was a sandy mc sandy who won last years sandy competiton for being sandy beach?? First time I've ever seen the beach in the flesh, does anyone know if the recent storm washed the sand away?
The surf outback looked superb......are there rocks out there to watch out for?

Happened up here as well mate - beach scoured of most sand leaving black rock strata poking out and massive chuckies on the beach - almost unrecognisable. Another one we surf , a right off a harbour is now screwed as a huge storm moved 3 massive boulders round from the sea wall onto the take off spot and dumped tonnes of gravel in the bay and now it is too shallow - we managed to move one of the big boulders on a mega low tide but it's now dangerous as fuck

The sand at Northcott was washed away in one of the Big storms a few years ago. It tends to build back up a bit during the summer but nothing like it used to be.
