Anatori - Too much swell

It looked as if 2 swells were mixing, creating far overhead sets that were closing out very wide and breaking about 1km out. Combined with the strong flow out of the Anatori river (left to right here), we figured that even if we got out, we were more likely to get spat back out along beach rather than make one of the waves that peeled properly. A shame, because the good waves looked excellent.
