I'm not much of a morning person. I find it hard to get out of bed one minute earlier than I have to. Every now and then I force myself to get up early and it makes me wish I was a morning person. Even if the waves are fairly average, and the water has turned a little "fresh", there's something pretty cool about watching the orange glow rise over the horizon.
There were moments of good waves this morning, followed by long waits and shifting peaks. If you happened to be in the right spot there were some great little waves. If you were me, there was not. Still, the sun was shining and the water was pleasant. There are a lot worse ways to start the day.
Finally, the waves and weather came together for my small window of opportunity to take a few photos.
It was good to have the camera out in the water again.
The tide was running out making for some round barrels off the end of the wall.
There is a definite lack of swell today. But if you had a big enough board there was still some fun to be had. The water was nice, the sun was shining and the crowd was friendly. It was certainly better than not surfing.
I wasn't too keen to surf yesterday with a Nor-Easter blowing straight into Towns. But my enthusiastic buddy Andrew talked me into a quick splash, which turned out to be surprisingly good. The water was clear, the sun was shining and I was surfing like a kook, so I swapped the board for the camera. I'll stick some more shots on our Facebook Page shortly.
Despite a light breeze and a fun little swell, it was pretty quiet in the water this morning. There were only a few of us out sharing some pretty good little waves. The skies were pretty grey, but the sun tried to poke it's head out, so I swapped the board for the camera for a while. There's a chance there could be some good waves later today and if the last few afternoons are anything to go by it could get busy.
