First arrivals of north swell from category 5 Cyclone Pam. At 890 millibars and with 250kph winds while we were enjoying its distant effects it was inflicting enormous damage to Vanuatu. Early arrival swell is just 1m and today it mixed with Tasman swell and an annoying easterly chop but the overall effect was for head-high sets. Almost all lefts and this rarre attempt at a right soon closed out.
