After a run of ordinary weather, cold water and average waves, Port decided to show the tourists what it's really made of this morning. The sun was shining, water was warm and Lighthouse was providing some fun, clean barrels.
This is a hectic time of year when you own a surf shop. It doesn't allow for much time at the beach. Hence the lack of photos lately. (and the reason I'm sending this email from work at 8.30pm) I did manage to sneak down to Lighthouse on Saturday afternoon. It looked like rubbish but every now and then a gem came through.
After a run of average waves and weather it was nice to see the sun shining this morning. At first glance the waves looked pretty good. But after watching for a while I realised that the good waves were few and far between.
Sorry about the gap since the last email. Decent surf and I have had trouble organising a time to get together. With the Nor-East winds lately Lighthouse has been the only real option, but theres a long, straight, shallow bank that has been mostly close-outs. This morning the swell had some angle to it and there were a few gems amongst the junk.
It's nice to see some waves with some punch again. I swam out at Lighthouse last night and there was a little bit of size hitting a very shallow sand bar. The photos don't really do it justice. I wore a few on the head on the way out and was a bit rattled. There was a lot of water moving and I was pretty wrecked when I went in.
