“Early birds get the worms”
To tell you the truth, we had a pretty terrible surfing season here on the East Coast of Australia. Spring + Summer became the longest ‘onshore/no swell’ stretch I’ve seen for a years. That day, again, looked pretty average on the forecast: onshore winds, not much swell, short wave period.
The New Collection had just landed and I was dying to test the new styles and start creating imagery of it. I messaged a few girlfriends and managed to convince them to meet up before sunrise (it didn’t take much really), hoping for the best.
Early birds get the worms they say. Our before-dawn wake up was rewarded by an empty peak, almost glassy, where Roisin, Lucy, Jordy, Tarryn and myself shared plenty of fun waves.
Clementine Bourke came along and shot these beautiful images capturing the magic of that morning.
