Of course it would be an epic week of surf. Cos I couldn't surf. Damn Covid. But nonetheless, the waves cooked. Whilst I watched. Nepture has such a sense of humour sometimes.
It built up during the week with some super fun runners in clean and glassy conditions, then a coupla puffs of wind here and there to ruffle things up, and then culminating in some big wind coupled with some big waves on the weekend.
Millers had waves most of the week, as did Pipe & Rincon. Even Avo's had a few takers here and there. Needed quads of steel to deal with the wind chop at times.
Anyone who wanted a bit of wild with their waves could have headed over to the wild side.
Keep going west and it kept getting bigger. JBay was off it's pip.
Here's a few from Pipe, taken by Mr Pipe, Dave Randle.
East Cape line-ups are something special. And during winter, well, they just that much more special!
No doubt after a week full of waves Neptune will punish us with a week of nothingness thereafter, but pretty sure everyone got their wave quota's for a while anyway.
Oh, and in other news - the mullets snuck the bloody fish farm back on the agenda. And whilst everyone was up in a flurry over that - Thyspunt nuclear also came back into the mix. Us here in the East Cape get to pick our environmental poison.
