Farewell Summer

With rapidly declining overnight temperatures coinciding with shortening of daylight hours it wont be long my friends until we are all rubbered up in our trusty winter suits and booties.
Hopefully things are looking on the up as stated in the previous post. This coming week looks like a good solid swell coming our way and I cant wait to see some local action thats for sure as the long drives to either coast are starting to lose their appeal.

Speaking of such missions there are some great photos coming my way from local guys getting out west so check out the "Photos" page for these shots and dont forget the monthly photo comp which in now running also found in the page links.

Hogey has some great winter gear coming in so might be time to stock up for the colder months.
FCS are now making 5 and 7mm booties and according to all reviews they are dreamlike.

On a last note some "actual progress" is underway regarding the re-surfacing of Schnappers carpark with a quote of 40 cubic metres of ap40 gravel being finalised with Hope Sealing Contractors offering to grade and roll the stuff for free!!!
What bloody legends!!

Looks like we may be a little short in the funds department so anyone who has been thinking of joining Nelson Boardriders Surf Club for an annual fee of $25.00 or you would like to make a donation to the cause please locate details through the ""Contact/Club" page as its all about doing good stuff to benefit and enhance our enjoyment of Surfing in the sleeping giant we call Nelson - Surf City!
With that I leave you with a quote from Surf Forecast Dot Com's Nelson reviewer Rob Davies

-I've got a lot of respect for the whole Nelson area. It's totally off the map for most surfers but when it is working (NW swell needed) the surf is classy.
Twice in 2009 I set off on big trips out of the Nelson area to surf Kaikoura one trip and Gissie and East Cape on the other.
4 weeks on the road in total, and inevitably some great waves, but both times I had better waves in the Nelson area. Go figure

Peace Out -
