Big Surf

Surf at Porpoise Bay

One of the features of any coastal area that is exposed to the prevailing weather is surf.  The Catlins Coast catches all of the weather systems that come from the south, and south here means the Antarctic and South Pole.  It was an overcast and windy day when we visited Porpoise Bay and nearby Curio Bay, and the wind had a decidedly polar feel to it.  The waves were large and unwelcoming, fascinating and alluring at the same time.

    Hi Chris
    I’m helping a community trust set up some booklets about grief, and we would like to ask if you could use this image in one of the booklets. If you contact me I can provide more information about what we’re doing and how we would like to use the image.
