Punchy shoulder-high waves at Patons rock allowing for good speed down the line. Picked up a bit more as the tide came in but it was too dark for photos then. Heavy shorey breaking in just 2 foot of water was powerful enough for me to get stuck inside a few times. A tough paddle-out, in Golden Bay! Crazy. And the third or fourth decent swell here this winter.
