Photos: The feast after the famine
The autumn surf season came late to the Surf Coast.
Summer passed but small swell continued through March, as it had through February and January also. However, last Sunday week, the door slammed shut on that pattern when a very large but windy southwest swell engulfed the coast. It was far from classic, but it served to signify the changing season.
Then, yesterday, the Surf Coast woke to the day it'd been waiting months for when a majestic long-period southwest swell broke headlong into light northwest winds.
Everywhere was too good, but Steve Arklay hung the Winki/Bells headland photographing an autumn feast.
