Crescent HeadEdit Spot
Crescent is losing its long perfect waves with the sand being dredged up from right on the point to 30 metres north in a storm earlier this year preventing any really long waves, but it is still, in my opinion, the best spot (for longboarders) on the mid north coast.
Don't bean idiot and go during school holidays. When I visited in the school term I had 300 metre 2ft clean right handers all to myself, and in the holidays there are about 40 grommetts attacking anything that breaks. If theres no surf at the point, don't go straight to Back Beach, check further down Killick Beach first with some binoculars and you will find something alot closer.
Even if it is smaller, try to catch them from right out on the point as most of the time they will follow through to the larger break towards the mouth of the creek and you will have right of way all the way in which is accepted at Crescent.
Drive to the southern parts of Kkempsey (5hrs North of Sydney) and you will find a turn off for Crescent Head. Follow the road untill you reach the town 21kn away.
