Nelson Crowd Depletion?

As with most winters you always sort out the keen from the not so keen but this winter seems to be mysteriously uncrowded.... The guts of our surfing youth has moved to Australia whilst the others have gone to university in Dunedin and Wellington... and looking through the ranks there really doesnt seem to be too many young surfing punks left in Nelson,,, Could it be that we are going to see a drop in numbers in our lineups??? As for the elders, perhaps the 3 to 4 months of painful flatspells truly tore the hearts out of those who couldnt see the light and they too have left our shores. Maybe its just a natural process of evolution and along with the peaks you get the lulls.. Whatever it is..... there has never been a better time then right now to get out there and get into that feeling that can only be can be described as the one and only, Nelson - Surf City.....

  1. ..sigh..same here in Whanganui. Either Australia or Taranaki for work and more consistent surf.
