Ok snap out of it Already !!

Tired of endlesss summer days and frolicking with Orca and Dolphins?
Just a couple more days folks and the weather patterns look set to snap out of their "Summer Coma" as we see some more lively fronts lining up the Tasman instigated by some good lows forming around and on Tasmania. Our local water temp is now resting firmly on a balmy 18degrees and with a micro groundswell through the week it was good to get out in the water with minimal rubber.
So, sit tight, the "Uni-returnee" curse is just about over and its time to mix it up with the summer crowds and
as a good friend once said , "If its flat, at least we've got sunscreen".
See you in the water soon.

Grommets Looking for Boards.

A couple of Nelson groms have hit me up recently asking for second hand surfboards for sale  ideal for helping them learn faster rather than the old trick of going out and getting a Kelly Slater thruster and wondering why they still cant surf in 5 years time. What am I on about? Okay ,, looking for fishes or big volume boards preferably below the 6'2 mark though. Anyone with anything of interest please email nelsonboardriders at hotmail dot com.

Swell Season On !!!
