The first wave I saw this morning had me amping. What looked like a solid 4ft grinding left had me wrestling with my wetsuit and bolting to the sand as quick as I could in the half-light and cold.
Unfortunately, realty set with dawn and it became clear and what I was actually looking at was 2ft low-tide guillotine closeouts. The kind of closeout that lead you in thinking you’ve got half a chance but shut the gate before you’re even on your feet. You know the ones.
There’s so much sand on the banks right now. It’s an easy walk out the back at low-tide, no need to put the swim-fins on or get your hair wet until you 50m off the sand.
Update: I just checked the cams right now, the tide is up and it’s looking way better now. Might be time for an early lunch.
