So.... unless youve had your head buried in the sand or been so busy you dont know whether you are Arthur or Martha it seems we are in for a decent run of swell heading up to Xmas.
multiple systems starting to align with even the chance of waves Christmas Day which believe it or not ... happens more often than not.!!! A special Christmas Message update to be compiled at the end of the week so stay tuned because if you feel like being offended there is an annual "Roasting" of just about everyone and remember if you cant have a laugh at yourself then, who can you laugh at..... dont say you havent been warned but remember,,,, all light-hearted humour and names will be left out to provide those with sufficient paranoia to fill in the gaps.. wink wink nudge nudge... let it begin!!!
Cheers for tuning in and look forward to the best waves in over 6 months heading our way shortly!
It is with great regret that all our hopes and dreams of a super storm in the Tasman next week have been crushed with one brutal 6 hourly forecast shift. A lesson in pining over 7day charts or a mere glitch in the models?...only time will tell but remember, old school chart reading rules over wave forecasting models every time. Chin Up.
A warning to all Nelson surfers... there is a rabid-grommet on the loose at the Glen , heading out every second day on any kind of swell and his ability is escalating. Meet Zac Dillon, he's out there catching everything in sight while most of you are scratching your gnads staring lovingly at swellmap.
At 14 years old this kid is Nelson's performance surfing future and you heard it first here but you are still a pussy over 2ft Zac .... Go Grommet Go !!!
The end of the year is winding down and one of the most significant low pressure areas since Easter's Cyclone Ita still remains lingering off Australias east coast.So, when will it make its move across the Tasman Sea?? This is the question...Can you feel the suspense? I certainly can! Looking ridiculously like 2011's December storm we look set to finally get some rain but lets hope not too much at once. There has been way too much quiet times surf wise, and there is only so many 1 to 2ft windswells a person can handle before they retire to extra-curricular activities such as wind-wanking and professional beer drinking. Everyone is congregating on Nelson from far and wide for the silly season and you can bet the next swell will be met with insanely larger crowd numbers and equal enthusiasm like never seen before.
Its a love/hate time of year for surf-city and I cant wait to see you all out there in the most ridiculously crowded and pumping sessions!!! Bring it On!!
