Surf conditions at 6.45 a.m. on Wednesday 10th April 2013:
There's nothing quite like those first moments of wakening and lying back listening to the thump and roar of wild surf in the distance, while a bright dawn dances its light through the open windows.
And roaring and thumping it is this morning!
There are some big waves reeling into the bay just after high tide, the wind as light as can be, a gentle offshore (south easterly) breeze not yet strong enough to support those lumpy walls of water and so there is a bit of a mixed up swirl inside the bay.
There are cleaner lines outside though!
It actually does look a little too big for itself right now but that might be the peak of the swell too, so it could drop a little in size as the tide pulls out. I'm guessing that the usual bigger breaks should hold as the tide drops, the Slab, the Reef and maybe the Point (off the back) might show some powerful shape. Although the Point is turning itself inside out right now at high tide, so I guess that it could be even more intense later!
And, after saying all of that, I can think of a whole load of other breaks that could be shining this morning! Those breaks that long for these solid swells. There's a Point break up the road that should be on and a reef break (or two) down the road that will be firing!
It could just be worth having a little look around today!
