The title of this post is a reflection the way this New Year seems to be panning out.
A different year in Nelson surfing it would seem. A lot more comradery between local surfers and skill levels getting pushed to the limits. A few of the younger crew chosing to study and work in Nelson as opposed to chasing the Dunedin dream and the cycle of new and departing faces keeping the feeling around the surf community fresh and as vibrant as ever.(above): Cant complain about no photos this time ..... Jeff "Zippy" Schooler!!!!!
If that wasnt enough lyrical waxing then try this on for size..........
Rumour Mill:>>>Which local surfer couldnt resist the one footers rolling in on her wedding day at Rabbit Island and had to get out there immediately after her ceremony??>>>>>>Who were the lost sheep seen floating around at Snappers whilst everyone was over the hill???>>>>Which two local faces have been indulging in virginal surf territory on and off over the last 2-3months and scoring plenty??>>>Who is the local SUPstar who got a lesson in love from karma and if thats not toungue in cheek enough then last but not least who is the guy who lent his wetsuit to a mate only for the loanee to mysteriously recieve a bizarre rash in the below waist area???..
...the truth is out there..........!!!!
