Here Comes 9

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.
Monday saw the arrival of solid 6foot lines however the wind was a tricky one with Cables turning on and off throughout the morning whilst The Glen provided some shelter but solid sets made it easier to stay home by the fire. A few people have been whining about the "monday" swell run of late however we may see a shift back in days this week to a more convenient weekend warrior style cycle.
Labour weekend comes early this October and anyone keen on entering and/or travelling to the annual Cape Classic in Westport and would like to be part of a Nelson "team" should get their expressions of interest in now as sponsorship is being sought earlier this year and a crew number needs to be sorted. Cheers.
