After a good sesh at Orewa yesterday and checking out that a 12 sec pulse of swell was due this afternoon and from watching the cams all morning - it was time hit Orewa.
Launched about 3pm and paddled over the bar as there were some nice left and rights breaking. The main beach was packed with people and the swell was just beach breaking.
The bar was working sweeeet. Scored multiple set waves from way out the back and rode right into the beach. Probably 100m rides!
Still learning how the Naih 9'5 Mana turns. Need to get back further and use the rocker line to generate speed to turn.
Swell Map was predicting a rapid increase in period to 12 secs in the afternoon and the swell did pick all afternoon. There were some nice solid shoulder high sets every now and again!
Classic Orewa Bar sesh!
