2021 brought a pretty decent swell
. I can start making notes on surf spots now:
- Ponto: good surfers and a close, hollow break. Microjetty. Great for photography.
- Black's: good surfers, break is sometimes close. Low viewing angle means better perspective but often inside waves occluding view. Sun doesn't hit the water until an hour or so past sunrise due to the cliffs.
- Horsehoe: okay surfers, break is not ideal for 500mm. Rocks are a great place to get a semi-elevated perspective.
- Windansea: okay surfers, break is medium-close. This one didn't catch the swell as much as Black's.
