We got to Hatch early and it was gusty, but we went out to avoid the crowds later. It was way better than expected so I switched from freestyle to wave board pretty quickly. Some super fun reaches, 2 big floaty port shov-its off the point, my fav shov-it swell was coming through, and then it 100% died.
I went back out later on 3.8/85L and was LIT, could have been on 3.4 and then it DIED again. 2 fun port shov-its again.
I love it when it is southerly, not northerly!
The wind was only pulsing for 1/2 hour or so at a time.
Very cloudy, bad set-up.
