Just 3 of us paddled out on this very stormy morning. Mostly gutless and slow reforms even if some of them did break for hundreds of metres. It got a bit bigger as the tide dropped a bit, to almost head-high on sets, but the relentless cross-shore SSW gale and driving rain made it hard work. A photo submitted from Oxwich at the same time shows it was probably better there.
