View this post on Instagram Sun burning away the last of pea soup mist that rolled through the break this morning (called Inversion, apparently – see @surfphotosofyou – yesterday's post – for more photos and proper explanations). So thick it cut off our view of the beach, and the swell, so that waves loomed out of nowhere, but you couldn't really judge them
