If you get lucky while touring you may get a storm. Not so lucky I hear you think! On the contrary, when the weather attacks the ocean and the violent moods show on the surface the sea is a spectacular place and, every time it happens in my home town, there's a queue of cars at the beach because so many people want to see it. I can't blame them, I'm somewhere in the queue myself!
These shots were taken around Newcastle Baths and at Merewether, a couple of places where you can not only watch the power of the sea but see human beings try to tame the fury.
There are other spots such as Blacksmiths, Nobbys and Stockton where rideable waves can be had also and you might see surfers out; depends on the swell direction and wind direction.
