St Clair Beach was bombarded by monsters from the deep yesterday evening. The seawall at the Esplanade shook from the impact of 2m waves, which were breaking 50m offshore and sending spray 20m into the air. Seawater covered the 6m-wide walkway and nearly reached the road. Dozens of people visited the Esplanade to see the big wave action, take photographs and play in the spray. courtesy ODT
