Were the figures on the forecast just a glitch?
23.5ft swell with a 16 second period and a WNW forecast spelt only one thing – K Bay! It was huge! But the South West start to the day and super shify wind meant that the perfect forecast was not too be. Despite everyman and their dog turning up to the bay, it was far from classic, however there were a good few out putting a good show on. Watch as Andy King, Steve King, James Cox, John Hibbard and Mark Bell make the most out of the situation. In the last hour of light, the wind finally switched NW allowing them to get past the mast high walls of whitewater to the legendary Bench. The Crazy Horse himself opens the proceedings..
