By the time I had met up with mates and kitted up conditions weren't as good, but still not bad, we moved a mile or so south looking for a better shaped wave and got in. Did no good, and the wind became a howling cross-on.. we all decided to look for shelter before the wind totally ruined it. Went about 20 mins north, round a rather exposed point, to somewhere "more sheltered" which I had spotted on a previous visit, but not surfed. Murderous high tide shorey was over head high onto stone.. decided to wait for the tide to drop.. went looking for food, and checked out a couple of other options.. which weren't working in the wind. Arrived back to see the tide had dropped enough to give it a go, but it was fairly messy, and had lost a lot of size. Feeling totally frustrated I got in and mates left without bothering.
No shape to it, occasional rebound waves messing up what clean lines did form up, and a real longshore rip constantly pulling me off the peak.. For the first time in as long as I can remember I left the water not having caught a wave, in a foul temper, at about 2.30.
went home. Not stoked.

I share only his hairline and have a blockhead useful for headbutting people.
Especially ones from the NE.
