Hey guys, I was wondering where the best place to go and dive with the cow sharks is. And are they there quite frequently?
Thanks

Hey Simba

My most successful dives with the cowsharks have been at Pyramid Rock near Millers Point. They are generally found in the shallow kelp beds on the inside of Pyramid itself and are almost always there.

Hope that this helps.

Hey Simba,

I'm not sure what the current conditions are like. However,  I do know that there is a slight swell running in the bay.

Check the webcam : http://www.thecornersurfshop.com/webcam/.
I'll be there later. You can give me a call on 084 357 5176

Cheers,
L

Hey Simba,

I tried to contact you  regarding the conditions at Millers today... FLIP!
Extreme Diving would have been the order of the day!
I even saw a set break over pyramid rock before I left. No good today!

Other than the swell and hectic current, the viz looked awesome. This will only improve with the NW that has been forecasted.

Wednesday might be a good call! I know that there's quite a lot of swell (and rain) predicted, but judging by the direction of the forecasted swell, I don't think it will wrap into the bay that much. Though stranger things have happened...

Check out today's conditions below... you can see a bit of white water around pyramid rock in the distance. Hope this was useful?

Cheers,
L
