Who Knew?

Just spent the week away with my work, 6 solid days of drinking and team building activities.. how is this relevant?

well we just discovered the bes right hand point break in bluff, this spot was amazing it started at the headland with about 4-6ft of crazy smashing surf, then as it wrapped around the point for about a mile, greeted by a howling offshore breeze.

Once around the point the swell slowly dropped and cleaned up to a nice 1-3ft swell and we watched this guy on a single fin mal catch a ride for at least 3mins get off and walk back to the point!! this is crazy since the average ride for any wave is about 15 seconds..

Sunny Weekend!!!

The sun decide to shine, and the tempature rose above 10degrees, so Petra and I went over on sat to the Manderly festival at little river, and wow that was a waste of time, full of grannies and cost 10$ to get in, there was salsa dancing lessons though!!

we scrapped that idea and put our 10$ to better use at the infamous little river tearooms, and headed over to Te oka bay for sum surfing lessons, petra was catching more waves than i did!!

On Sunday i headed over again with the boys, and although the swell had dropped, still managed to get heaps of waves!!

1-3ft S swell, SW winds

Its almost summer..

So wanaka and queenstown have received a fresh dump of 10cms of snow in NOVEMBER for christs sake.. but with this big front of bad weather brought a sizable swell into the east coast of Otautahi.. We surfed scarborough and taylies fri-sun in bareable 13degree water.. along with every other person in town who is whiping the dust off their sticks and blowing the cobwebs off the lip.

2-4ft NE swell, NE winds.
