Howdy people and welcome to the month of March and with the high water temperatures at the moment it looks like we will be milking a few more weeks out of summer just yet! Forwarding through the charts it seems there is still some cyclonic action up there too and who knows what Huey might throw our way. A good couple of weeks of wave action with Cyclone Atu throwing a small yet mechanical swell into the bay the week before last and then last week this was accompanied by a double swell! (what does it mean !),with some lucky boys scoring some afternoon madness at an undisclosed location.
Rolling into friday saw a chunky norwest swell spreading the crowd at Snappers.
Jeremy Pooley, Otta, Rich Barry and myself sharing the lefts whilst Russ Bruce, Olin Pilcher , Nige Keeley and Brandon "I would kill that wave" Kingi, killing the rights, Brandon returning back to Nelson for some more treats.
The next day saw some leftovers and it was great to see a bunch of young frothing grommets out there getting amongst without wetsuits looking a little bit hypothermic but the pure stoke keeping the internals combusting. (above)Michael Carlsson from Sweden and his first ever surf at Tahunanui Beach.
