Sneaky Tee bay

Not a bad way to spend a friday afternoon, with no swell in town, we headed off to the otherside and checked out a pretty popular spot first. Was about 30 guys ruling the place, so we flagged it and shot round the corner to be greeted by an empty bay, with hell offshores and what appeared to be a pretty average size swell..

Until we got out there, the sets were bigger than the original estimation of about 2 ft.., the wind eased to light offshore and it was pumping. Even a few 4ft sizey swells rolled on in and worked us. There was lefts and rights and a few second barrels.

One of the best days i've seen it here in a looong time.

Tekapo Boat Trip

Brodie is flying out to korea in 2 weeks. We had been talking it up what awsome wakeboarders we are (despite never ever doing it before). So we finally worked our asses into catching up with him and heading down there to put money were our mouth is.
A few dramas hitting the road, but we eventually made it to lake tekapo, to be greeted by a crystal day, no wind and full sunshine all around. Skipper nortz put us to the test and we held our own in amoungst the hardcore ski biscuits, kneeboarders and the occasional extreme lake kyakers.

Heres a few screen shots and clips of the "Southern Gold" times:

Tubing all day long..

In amongst the endless tunnels of water, B-rad managed to take a bit of time out, to snap a few sweet shots of a nice barrell day at a little bay up the coast..

worth waiting for.
