:: Gentlemen's Hour

The hours after 8am when the last of the work crew have tied their ties and left the carpark, the gentlemen (and ladies of course) come out for Gentlemen's Hour.  The vibe's a little more relaxed and surfers in the water have a little more time on their hands to relax and share the line up.  It's a time for conversation and sharing waves instead of the hunger for waves and limited time that can plague the pre-work crew.    This morning I swapped the dawn hour for the brighter blues and daylight to shoot the time-privileged few that can ease their way into the day. There's still a little bit of South-East swell sneaking through and it's clean and tidy with a light offshore.   Perfect for a late start!

Check out today's Local Focus article with Tom Carroll for an insight into the legend himself.
