Blacksmiths shore break 1/12/2018. A five foot swell was coming in from the east but waves now only dump right on the shore. There is a lot of sand on the beach but none under where the waves should be breaking. The waves used to break out where the surf boat is riding the swell.
As a comparison to now here’s Blacksmiths Beach going off in a big north east swell June 2016 after a few days of big swell pushing in and scouring out of the sand on the beach.
