Morning Surf Magic

Morning Surf Magic

There's something undeniably magical about a surf at dawn where the light breaks onto the horizon, the air is crisp and the world is still waking up. 

Some go to church on a Sunday, some surf at sunrise on a Friday morning. It’s hard to not feel a sense of inner peace and profound connection to nature paddling out into the ocean as the sun begins to rise and the promise of a new day dawns. 

Beyond this sunrise serenity, the morning is often the ideal time to hit the waves, where the wind tends to be lighter, creating cleaner, more manageable waves - conditions that always make surfing much more enjoyable.

Prior to the winds picking up, the ocean hasn’t had a chance to stir up, which means it holds a smooth, glassy appearance. Tell us what’s better than carving into a glassy wave as the sunrise peeks over the water!

The saying 'early bird gets the worm' is true in most cases, but popular surf spots can still be a frequented playground in the early AM, with any keen surfer also trying to beat the crowds and strive for a break to themselves. Still, the early morning will almost always offer a peaceful respite from the daytime crowds.

Not to mention the benefit of avoiding the harsh UV rays that come after 9am, especially living in South East Queensland. 

Fresh sea breeze, some physical activity and salty ocean water will set anyone up for a positive day ahead, feeling energised and rejuvenated. 

As we enter into the cooler months, it can be harder to crawl out of a warm better before sunrise but boy is it worth it. The stoke is high catching those early AM waves on a Bywater wooden surfboard.
