OV to St Clair



Got out to Brighton this morning, but nothing to write home about, large sets coming thru but closing out. Ocean View .. nice, a few guys going out, but went back to ST Clair and set up there for a few hours.. not too crowded, a few groms in the shore break, and the rest out back catching a few large sets coming through.

Long Point was 6-8ft this morning. Quite big and ugly, many a wipe out and long paddles for lost boards!!! Dunno's locals Stu Carese,Kerry McNally and Neil Brew made the trek down early and were blessed for their effort. A few others went out but had to pick their waves.

I heard it was pumping then.. the lady in the cafe said around 9 there were a few really good surfers out there. Kinda wished I went straight to St Clair first instead of down the line to Brighton, oh well.

midnight; amazing moon and surf looked great with long rights and a few lefts, maybe Sunday will be good?

top right pic is at Ocean View, Dunedin, about 15 mins south of the city just before you get to Brighton. Yeah, the pic has a nice warm glow to it, taken about 10am so the light was still soft.
