In a gap between downpours, on a cold winters day, I took advantage of a super low tide and walked from Main beach here in Woolacombe to Grunta beach without getting my feet wet (waterproof shoes). As a consequence of the super moon, the tide drains out to near zero allowing us walkers to pass […]

Light north easterlies groomed the ‘slightly too big for the banks’ swell, there were however some screamers. Pictured here are local surfers Josh Witts, Archie Willis, […]
