The Big Wait

So folks, looking at the forecast we are in for a bit of sit on hands action over the next 7 to 10 days whilst a gigantic Indian Ocean generated swell plows through the southern ocean looking set to light up West Oz with some amazingly large swells. By the time it reaches NZ its gonna be in the form of a 6metre wsw swell so not much luck in Nelson unfortunately and prevailing west winds are gonna make it somewhat mythical for us and the West Coast.
So with all that time on our hands I have made a list of reasons that make it great to wait in winter.

5: You can turn your head towards the peaks and re-introduce yourself to your forgotten snowboard career.

4: You can roam endless cafe's in search of the perfect latte'.

3: Puffer jacket?.... yes please.

2: Spend more time indoors trolling the net for 40ft swells cos lets face it.... if you lived there you would surf it.

1: Because there is no swell........you dont have to surf in this bloody freeezing weather,,, Yaaay!!!!
