As the sun starts to rise earlier and earlier each morning and the evenings slowly draw out, we’re presented with more opportunities to go surfing. Not only is there more daylight available but the water starts to warm up and adverse conditions aren’t such an issue. With the arrival of more favourable conditions come greater numbers of surfers enjoying the waves, and sharing the joys of surfing is a big thing for us here. We know that we are incredibly lucky to live and work overlooking the ocean and are thankful that we’re able to make the most of good swells when so many surfers are land-locked or stuck at work. Sometimes when it gets busy at the beach, however, it’s good to escape the crowds and go looking for quieter spots to surf. We did just that at the end of last summer when a few of us packed up the van on a whim and headed deeper south and west to get solitary waves and some sand in our sleeping bags.
