A fun wave but a bit small really. Just enough to get the gist of this excellent break visible from the bridge over the Hawai river. The swell was too small for the direction on this - too far East of North, but in a north swell or a bigger NE wrap this break comes to life. Apparently this was an overhead day at the Mount, and it was about head-high at the Ohope beaches we had stopped at an hour before.
