Greymouth legend Phil Harris made the 3 1/2 hour journey north to sample some Nelson delights after an anonymous tip-off from an anonymous ex-greymouth surfer.
Although the conditions were marginal Phil still managed to stun a few mullets with some crisp off-the tops. In writing that just then it reminded me of how quick us Nelson guys are to whinge and moan about other surfers from either coast visiting our breaks but how hypocritical this can be with most of us frequenting either Westport or Blenheim/Kaikoura at least once a month.

Ive set up a poll on the right hand side of the page regarding the crowd situation at Snappers so answer honestly. I for one think the crowd factor is pretty much the same as it was 5 years ago
I remember counting 34 cars in the carpark during Cyclone Wati but hay then again maybe it is more crowded nowadays, or maybe, just maybe, we all get a little more claustraphobic as the years roll by......
