Admittedly Cyclone June was a funny name for a Cyclone mid January and the above title was created by Geoff Noble who just so happened to pull out his high quality camera for some action shots of Snappers as the swell filled in Tuesday afternoon on a small but still remarkable Cyclone swell. Technically only just a cyclone being born and dying within 24hours she was a baby in comparison to some and the punters were left very worried as Tuesday morning revealed absolute dead flatness but in true Nelson fashion come midday sighns of life in the ocean appeared out of nowhere as instant 2 to 3ft lines began to fill the bay with the only problem being the high tide and nowhere to surf so some quick out of the box thinking saw Keni Duke and Chris Tupu sup-lording the back bar/blind channel Tahuna which may possibly be the best sup wave in the world, whilst myself and a couple of boys ventured east to a semi secret location and met the swell head on.

Anyhow, another day and another swell.
