Monday morning the swell was still there. And for a while the wind stayed a light side to side offshore. The favourable wind didnīt last long so. Soon it turned side to side-onshore and increased. Waves became a bit bigger too and I decided to have a look at a more protected other point nearby.
The wind was much better there, and the majority of sets brought hip-high but long lefts, perfectly suited for longboarding. Set waves were something different though. They came in about shoulder to head-high and started to brake in a Slab-like manner over a shallow part of the reef further out before turning in long mellow walls.
Nobody was out. I didnīt know the spot aside from the many stones sticking out our lurching just beneath the surface on smaller days. So, I walked / paddled out carefully and stayed at the inside to take advantage of the mellower waves of the smaller sets. A strong current and the white-water of the bigger sets washing through made holding position a bit difficult, but I caught a few nice ones.
