Save Ocean Beach

The natural and physical resources of Ocean beach and its adjacent City Dunedin are under threat and you can help!

St Clair / Kilda now a new left Point break?
A natural process of beach recovery after storm erosion events have gouged out the dunes and flattened the beach profile is for large sand banks to form 200metres out to sea. This is to dissipate the wave action coming in towards the dunes, so that less energy impacts upon the beach and dunes. This allows the barrage of wave action to be minimised so the beach can themn begin to recover.

During this easterly swell, the banks created some long peeling surfable waves, much like a point break.
