Searching for waves small enough to ride would seem the ultimate paradox for a surfer.
Eurobodalla Bodyboarding Club experienced this exact phenomenon last weekend, as huge waves buffeted the coast reducing their monthly contest to a mobile odyssey in the quest for rideable waves.
The EBD spent much of Sunday morning searching from Tuross to Durras in the pursuit of sandbanks that would provide a semblance of a surfable wave.
Marlise Woodford from fellow surfing fraternity, One Tree Boardriders Club, said the conditions were just too dangerous.
“We usually hold (our club competitions) around Tuross, depending on where the best conditions are,” Ms Woodford said.
“But it was eight foot and just too dangerous.
“We’ve got some 10-year old kids in the club, and even if we wanted to go out I don’t think their mother’s would have let us.”
Dirk Van Luin from the coastal patrol said the swell monitor in the Eurobodalla recorded waves over six metres in height.
“We had waves up to 6.4 m and an average swell of four metres recorded at the wave rider off Durras,” Mr Luin said.
“(At this time of year) we sometimes get that kind of weather, but it’s normally one to two metres.
