Mostly shoulder high here. The odd head-high set in the middle of the Bay breaking very far out. Punchy waves breaking beyond the exposed rock platfrom too, most likely a continuation of the Rock into the Bay so reef breaks. Great fun for a novelty surf inside Golden Bay. Surprisingly good and still waist-high and clean next morning.
