It might not look like it from this picture but there is a big surf running here at world famous Snapper Rocks. Usually we see the surfers just plunging straight in and paddling out to the waves. On this day, we noticed everybody waiting, waiting: nobody was trying to get out to the break until they could see a short respite in the pounding surf. A little while later they had all paddled out, but for those few minutes as we were walking by there was obviously a collective “let’s all not do anything stupid here” experience.
Fortune may favor the bold but sometimes it’s really smart to wait till the right moment, not just dive in.
