I followed them across the wet sand and soon realized that along the harbour wall there were breaking waves once in a while. Due to the high period of the swell there were longs lulls in between sets. But every 10 to 15 minutes a three-wave set appeared and broke in long point break-like lines.
It turned to be a very fun wave that would have been perfect to surf with a longboard. But my board was a at least 30 minutes’ walk away and the lineup was quite populated with locals too. Set-waves were very rare too with most waves barely passing hip-height. The few better sized ones were heavily contested. So, nothing for me today, but I mind-marked this wave – which apparently only runs at very low tides – for a future try. It also was easy to let this opportunity pass, as I knew it would be pumping further up the beach all day.
Now I needed a bakery and I found one in the town centre close to the harbour. And as I was here anyhow, I decided to make a little detour through the narrow alleys leading up the steep hill which forms the south-eastern end of the bay.
