As the seasons' winds shifted, anticipation among surfers along the Northeast coast reached its peak. Finally, after what felt like an eternity of waiting, a powerful ground swell combined with favourable offshore conditions graced the shores. It was Wednesday, the 27th of September, a day to remember for many surfers.
The waves on the island were pumping, but it wasn't without a bit of chaos. A couple of boats flipped over, and Jet Skis were parked up on the beach to be safe. Many locals decided to take a day off from work to ride these epic waves.
The waves were near perfect; amidst the excitement, experienced surfers couldn't help but say that this day was almost as good as it gets.
