Surfing in Golden Bay

It was about shoulder high and improved as the tide came in. I ended up staying in until after it got dark; determined to surf the reef itself and not just the Bay. In the event, I very nearly surfed straight into the blunt face of Patons rock itself. Bugger. Will wear a head-torch next time. Great fun for Golden Bay surf and apart from being soft to duck-dive it sometimes gave the impression of being a proper swell.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
