Atmosphere

Usual on Low to mid tide but it will take a higher tide on big swells... best swell direction= sw... straight south doesn't get in.. west swells are unruly here..a nw will get in here if it is 10+ everywhere else... that's when Cropley's might break providing there has been enough sand pushed out to form a sand bar from trafalgar creek... this wave is gutless under head high... and gets good head high to double overhead.....

1st time - First time to surf!  Took a lesson from a great teacher.  Got up first time!  I am hooked.  Very sore a few days later, need to get a board and a wet suit and get back out there!

Man n the grey wetsuit - You guys see the video Chuck p shot on his SUP with the little hero cam? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-LIiVjdjwU Two great whites circling his board. Man I wouldn't want my feet danglin in that water. One came right up and almost knocked him off his board. I guess the power plants attracts em. That wave isn't that good I think i'll pass.
