Finally Some Waves!!

After a long wait somwhere around the nine week mark, we were greeted with a solid swell late weekend and into Monday and even some leftovers today being Tuesday.
Sunday mroning had everyone scratching their heads wondering where the heck the waves were with most forecast models calling 3metres in the bay, but up until late morning it was virtually flat. As midday hit so did the swell and it picked up rapidly with Cable Bay being the pick of the spots late sunday evening with favourable winds and solid 6foot sets and a lucky crew of six scoring the goods. Surfers included Bruce Wilson, Glen Richardson, Mike lindstrom and Ash O Donnell. Sunday morning saw a lucky few scoring more Cables whilst the midday sunday sesh saw Snappers surfed by the local Snap crew.

The Blenheim/Nelson Boardriders club comp is on standby once again for this weekend although conditions at this stage look marginal but stay tuned for a call probably on thursday.
