A solid 15-second period southerly groundswell pushed up the coast late Thursday afternoon. On Friday morning November 4, the water warmed up, the sun was out, and offshore northwest winds were fanning solid three-to-five foot lines.
Friday was fun, but Saturday morning was the real deal. Matty Grainger and Tom Carroll paddled out at Long Reef Bombie at dawn on their SUP’s and were pleasantly surprised mid session. Matty said, “At 6.00am it was only three-to-four foot and still a tad full and slow - it kind of justified our equipment choice. However by 8.00 when the tide dropped there were consistent five to six foot sets and it was quite hollow. There was quite a bit of water moving around. It wasn’t big, but it was definitely thick for this time of the year that’s for sure.”
