Well, not quite. Tasman Bay can be like a mirror but this is the most exposed spot in the area so the only consolation of surfing waves this size is knowing that everywhere else is even smaller. I was hoping the forecast would get it wrong and it would pick up before dusk but the damn model was bang on and we left just as bigger sets arrived
