After an absolutely punishing November with sweltering humidity and constant north easterly sea breezes, the start of  December seen a full turn around in conditions.

The temperature has dropped with many overcast days and the winds have mostly been out of the southwest to southerly early in the day, before going south easterly late. Although there has been nothing big, with waves mostly in the 2-3ft range, there have been some fun early sessions going down. It is a promising start to the summer of 11-12.
