Twenty of the world’s best bodyboarders competed for the title. It was held in wild 2 metre plus ESE swell with SE wind gusts and rain making for a testing days surfing.
Tuesday morning saw totally different conditions, with still a solid 1 to 2 meter SE swell fanned by north west winds, creating a perfect days surfing. A thick fog blew in around 7.30am.
My bunch of grommets we coach had a few others to contend with. Four humpback whales played off the point 30 to 40 meters from the surfers. We also had a seal cruising the patch near the jump off spot to get out to the point. Mother nature really turned it on and I just had to share!!!
Saturday will see 1 metre surf and an increase in swell size from the south as the day progresses. Sunday will be a bit bigger and early next week the swell should peak around 2 metres plus.
Great waves to be had for the next week. So get out there and get into it!!!
