Secret spot throws up powerful surf

With a medium southerly groundswell hitting the secret reef, we paddled out to the glassy barrelling surf. The swell direction wasn't ideal for stand up surfing, with sets wedging up into thick heavy barrels (perfect for bodyboarders!). The lefts were pretty gnarly, with Owen (Tui Tai Dive Instructor) out in the surf for the first time ever in an attempt to take pictures of Expedition Guide Tim. A couple of monster sets came in, washing up Owen on the reef before he could get more than a couple of photos.
Tim later swam out with his camera at the rights which were peeling and more makeable.
