A set wave sends this surfer too deep whereas he could have been pulling into a hollow right. To be fair, more often than not, the good waves mostly had someone in the slot. Lovely glassy conditions with a light offshore. DB was similar but with no more than 2 out whereas there were 10 at Schnappers and a few more getting changed.
