Clear skies, a strong off-shore and good sized swell saw protected spots firing this morning. High tide was about 9am, so protected beachies were the pick. The wind stayed off-shore but did get pretty strong, and turned a little more south into late morning. It was forecast to remain off-shore all day, so plenty of options were on offer. A great day to be in the water, with a hint of warmth still in the sun (although winter feels like it's approaching fast).
