Lazy Updates, Massive Grommet Influxes and Photos? Did you say... Photos?

Howdy all. Hope your easing into winter and not feeling the cold too much just yet whilst remembering it is only 3 weeks until the shortest day so hang tight. Little bits and pieces going on here and there in surf city of late with a couple of medio-core swells lapping our shores but nothing of real substance to get the tongues wagging. One would be true to concede it hasnt been a great start to our so called swell season but as we all know nothing is predictable in Nelson surfing.
Like the likelihood of 8 or more kids out surfing from Nelson college last thursday afternoon making a few older crew cringe but at the same time it was all harmless fun and great to see the next generation finding their feet in the wax and kina. A couple of missions going down left right and centre with Keni Duke , Olin Pilcher and a couple of others venturing east through the week and scoring some Kaikoura gold while others sitting tight and surfing in the comfort of their own neighbourhood.

Water temperatures are on the fall with the latest deposit of snow blanketing the mountains over the last week and there is definately a tingle on the hands upon first entry into the water however now is the time to make the most of settled wind and lower crowd numbers............swell providing.
I now point you in the direction of the photos page as I go on an uploading rampage,,,,,,,,
Cheers.
