Rob Lewis heads out at Wharaiki on the second day of Cyclone Pam north swell. The wind began SE offshore and later fell light. We didn't get out until it got dark after enjoying the best Wharariki conditions we have seen. Well overhead sets that focused strongly on distinct peaks. As the tide dropped a touch it became very hollow. Sadly no images of the best of it.
