Looking back along the beach at the left-breaking reef off the rocks at the far end of Wharariki about 1km away. That spot seems to like the long period westerly swells although there were good shoulder to head-high waves across the whole beach. First day when it felt like spring is not so far away. We surfed from 10am until 2pm.
