Another system slipped through Nelson making it the 10th weekend/monday system in a row and without getting too pre-anticipatory you could almost harness a giggle at the way the next load of isobars are gearing up. Saturday afternoon saw a lucky crew scoring great Cable Bay with Rachel and Julian Clark, Rich Barry, myself and Dunedin via Taiwan longboard shredder Ben Winmill getting amongst it,,, A following morning dawn raid saw the treacherous Glen Point surfed at Dawn whilst Bruce Wilson hit Snappers and Dunedin Rob charged to Cable Bay. <(below:) Ben Winill tests the depth of his fins at Glen Point

Those pesky shortboarders are at it again, trying to take over the local Nelson SUP scene with brutal inside tactics like the ones pictured below. Just remember, its way harder to catch a wave on a SUP and even equally harder to ride so be courteous and give these guys the "time", that they need. Why cant we all just get along at the dinner table?...

Howdy People. Yep thats right, looks like where in for the 9th system in a row heading our way later this week and looking into the crystal ball some could even see the predicition of ten in a row coming to fruition. A tricky weekend of surf with those in the know scoring the goods. Gary Miller, Rachel, Julian Clark and Bruce Wilson dipping into some low tide Cables with Julian claiming biggest Cable ever laid whilst Christchurch boys Taylor Mcneill and Tristan Yarrel scored some delights across the harbour with myself, Leif Christenson , Marty Clark and Blenheim's Mikey Lindstrom.
Paul Barron and Hawaiian shaper Gorden Hansen are going on a tour of NZ this November and conditions pending have decided to "drop-in" to Nelson. Paul has recently moved a lot of boards into the Nelson region with customers absolutely stoked with his shapes. We look forward to catching up with the boys and no doubt they will be amping on some surf-city delights. For more info visit the barron logo to the right of page...
