A lull in the swell made for some logging paradise at the local this morning. And with only one more forecasted day of sunshine until we hit another week of forecasted rain, there were plenty of people trying to make the most of the conditions.
For a breif moment, we have some sun, some glassy waves and the universe feels back in alignment. I say a brief moment as the forecast looks to rain on this parade over the weekend. The urgency to embrace these rare moments was visible this morning as there was a lot...

Sunday felt like a perfect summer morning. Quality swell, lots of people on the beach, sun shining and lots of smiles. I think I've been waiting for a day like this for 4 months.
A fun tiny waves club day at the local with a bunch of happy people.
A wild morning in the ocean with the local lineup more congested than normal, being ANZAC day. Another solid swell push from a nearby cyclone had surfers keen. Unfortunately, I only had a short window to shoot yet was happy with what I photographed.
I tried to shoot earlier in the morning but the rain came and went and came and it just wasn't viable or worth the risk. I came back in the middle of the day with the baby strapped to my chest to shoot some of the action from the Coffs Harbour Boardriders competition.
