A very pleasant session with head high waves breaking left and right. Ideal tide/wind/swell conditions for this break? Early morning high tide was good too. Mid-tide waves were fatter and backed off a lot. A bit before low tide it became excellent again and stayed this way for at least 2 hours. Warm, sunny, light offshore.
