A big fat "wow". It seems the misery of our surf deprived 2014 and early 2015 has been completely quashed within the space of a couple of months with Cyclone Pam breaking the strangle-hold of flatness bestowed upon our surf town. Basically, ever since Pam we have had a nice run of swells with a swell late ANZAC weekend actually surpasssing the size of Pam with some amazing waves going down at all breaks.

Also going down over the weekend was Nelson Boardriders club day, a fun surf comp and get together in atrocious weather at tahunanui beach. The event ran smoothly with wildcard and current south island circuit champion Levi O Connor giving us all a lesson in good surfing taking out the open event. The longboards were taken out for the third year running, a hat-trick by Geoff Noble whilst the Juniors was taken out by Jimmy Wright and the Girls a clear cut winner with Rachel Clark a cut above the rest.

Awesome participation despite the inclement weather and a great after-party/presentation at TahunaStudios workshop. A giant thanks to all who helped out with extra special thanks to Boulder Bank Electrical, Hogeys Surf, TahunaStudios, Pit Stop and Nelson Packaging,
