And So It Begins
Strap your paddling arms on, the West Coast of the North Island is in for yet another run of offshores. It looks like we are going to get a good week of it.
This spot, which will remain nameless due to it being highly localised and secretive, probably won't break again over the next week. The swell will be too small.
The bank isn't that good anyway. No one was making barrels last night.
There were no defined take off points or sections
Kye Bedford, plainly no way he's gonna get to the face on this close out
Floyd Smith and no doubt a similar grim outcome as Kye's wave
Kye on a good double over header
Meanwhile out the back things are going to get hectic real soon
Local builder Al Sanders
Clearly the rights were better
Dune Kennings on a rare peeler
Dave Wood getting tangled with a school of local predatory eels
Kye in the box seat for the best show in town
Dune on/in that section mentioned before, the one that's not really there
Dave on a freak peeler, the rest all were straight handers
West coast textures
Dune and clearly, the end.
Good luck with your wave hunting over the next week. Go a little further, search a little harder, and thrive in the thrill of exploration. But always be respectful of the land, and the people that choose to call these places home. Have fun.
