Two Steps Boat Ramp
It rained last week and lots of it, with a great low sitting right off the coast pushing plenty of swell into some parts of Jervis Bay, the only problem was the wind, a howling South East wind which meant only a few spots were protected , with this little gem of of a wave enjoying some off shore fun.
Why call this Two Steps ? Well it breaks extremely close to the shoreline, over a fairly flat rock shelf , bar for the truck load of rocks, right where it starts to bowl and spin, and then down to the safety of a sandy beach, which is then followed by a stride of pride walk back round the point, and do it all over again…..and because the take off is so close, you only need to take two steps and right right in the zone.
Eric da Bolt made the drive down for a surf and take some pictures, and even though I offered a lend of my kneeboard , he insisted that he needed to ride his surf mat…..”I am Mat Man” could be heard from the water, as he hurled shoulder first into those rocks that I mention before, cutting his hands and tearing a nice hole in his new wet suit!
But he did finally get a screamer, that took him all the way down to the beach, with the peanut gallery roaring with laughter, as all you could hear was da Bolts hooting and laughter as he was kicking back out…..Mat Man Returns?

Track was closed both days,,,we went by boat,,I didn't go the first day,,,,it was suppose to have been pretty good...yesterday it was ok,,,the swell direction had changed and the high was a small one so never really hit the bank as good as it should have,,,but there was still some fun ones...

The boys had an epic adventure,,,first day they rowed over in my little tinny and nearly got washed out to see in the howling wind....they had to pull the boat up onto the break wall, because they couldn't row against the wind to get tot eh beach in the river....,,the seats came out of their tracks,,Shaun smashed his shin and it swelled like a balloon,...,they put holes in the boat.. water pissing in...then they had to row back, water pissing in through the holes, shaun trying to fill 11 holes with 10 fingers,,,, and were blown about 300 meters towards the entrance before they made land fall and had to walk the boat back up to the ramp.......nothing like treating your NZ guests to a little south coast adventure.....funny story when they tell it,,,
so we filled the holes with wax,,,threw a borrowed motor on the back and cruised over yesterday.....don't know what all the fuss was about....
