Boomtown Brats / by craig levers

Spring is always a hard time for West Coast surfers. The Equinox of the changing seasons never makes of good winds on our beaches.

We turn into spoilt brats, complaining about the lack of water time, the lack of quality banks. It’s either gloom or boom. We forget how surfed out we were over summer, autumn and winter. This last week has been a stark contrast to that. We've had back to back days of beautiful weather and more than reasonable surf everyday.
