......but wait there's more.

You wouldn't be the first to admit of being worried about the last couple of weeks weather charts, as it seemed the warmer land temperature has pushed the last couple of frontal systems just that little further south and being the ever supersticious person I am, I was certain that the return of one of our grommets Marco Edwards to Nelson 2 weeks ago had ended our best swell run in history.

All was not lost though with last Saturday producing a mediocre Norwest swell in the 3 to 4ft range and Rabbit Island turned on the goods round midday with surprisingly low crowd numbers.
Saturday saw the return of Jason "Hulkmeister" Hylkema paddling out on a fresh new stick after a year and a half out of the water focusing on the gym and his personal training career. Jason was in fine form and proved that just cause you dont surf doesnt mean you cannot!!?!?!.... Cj Barton on the other hand wowed onlookers when he was momentarily possesed by AI's spirit on one wave with ultra lamina flow.

Looking forward to the next system as its shaping up to be a doozie and as our ounger crew return back to Nelson for the summer be sure to see the action lighting up with frothers in every direction !!!
