Robs Lewis and Davies get out of the sea after 4 hours of fun waves as the first swells from Cyclone Pam turned up. Mostly head-high set waves with very long left walls but the east wind put tricky speed bumps on it until the last hour. Taking a SUP was a good call: Rob L must have had more than 50 waves.
