Swell jumped today

Posted by: on March 19th, 2020

Hello Friends,

For one reason or another it wasn’t until I was catching up with the Goat earlier today that I learned the swell had popped up significantly over this morning. So, climbed up to the crowsnest and grabbed a few shots to share…
Conditions looked pretty setty when I watched and the north wind was chopping up the surface too.
