Local surfer Rob Lewis makes the most of surf at Patons Rock, something that only happens a few times each winter after an easterly gale in Tasman Bay. These little waves are just reforms in the shallows: the waves breaking on the reef itself and in the bay are about 200m further out and shoulder to head-high. Pretty good for Golden Bay!
