Paddled out at the Bower this morning on spec. My theory was that there might be the occasional solid set in the mix. Turned out that I was right. Water’s dropped several degrees too. Sets seemed to be getting a little more frequent as the morning went on – and the tide filled in. Biggest wave face I saw would’ve been around the head mark. Mostly though the rideable ones were more like chestish.
Later, driving home, I stopped at North Steyne for a look and shot the video minute below. Looks like they’ll have solid swell for the start of the contest.
