Happy Easter Everyone and let all of those who decided to stay in town be blessed as there is a 2ft swell on the rise with things looking great for the next 48hours!!
Last weekend saw everyone hangin themselves out to dry waiting for a swell which hardly eventuated then at the last minute when everyone had just about given up on it kicked on the sunday morning at 3-4ft but super hightides left everyone even more frustrated.Cj Barton, Mike Baker and myself shot the gap and headed over to Whangamoa to surf some beachies and were later joined by paulo Devia and Vaclav Nic from Columbia and Checkoslavakia respectively with Paulo coming a cropper on the notorious "Scar Reef" or "Two Ducks" reef point meeting the rocks and coming off second best.There was a shark attack the previous afternoon at Snappers check the story here but from a distance it seems the poor shark was only defending its territory from invading North Islanders.
