There is No Surf in Nelson.
The truth is finally out. After convincing ourselves over the past decade that there was actually rideable waves in Nelson the delusion has worn off. There actually isnt any surf in Nelson and this whole Nelson Boardriders Club and website has all been a hoax which began on an April Fools Day about 6 years ago. Many thanks must go to the photographers or "photo-shoppers" as we should more correctly name them for helping us create this false surfing community. A special thanks would go to Hogey at Hogey's surf for showing us that you really do not need to go surfing to maintain that wholesome healthy Surf Image. It truly is a great feeling parading around with boards on your roof knowing that you dont actully have to dip your toes in that oh so icy cold water.Anyhow it has been an amazing enjoyment running the dream of a utopian surf city and from now on its all paddlestick boards and kite-thingy's.
Dont say you werent warned......
