Surf City Rolls On.

Unless you have been living under a dead tree in Molesworth county it comes as no surprise there has been a plethora of waves of late and the amount of photos I have on hand is excessive.
Here is a handful below of some of the best from the last couple of weeks..

Around the Grounds.

So many waves of late its pretty hard to start with anywhere really. Especially if your memory flails you!
First up a big "all the best" to Mike Baker who is off to the world Bodysurfing champs in California at the end of the week.We hope Mike can get some results and put Nelson on the map!! Go Mikey Go!!

Local Glenduan Resident, Rory Dubienic is also another guy we should be wishing Au'Revoir as he heads to California also later this month for a 6 month exchange student stint based in Santa Barbara I am personally not sure of how much studying he will be getting done whilst stalking Dane Reynolds and the the rest of the crew.

I used to be a doubter of a "Swell Season" in Nelson but after 14 years residing here I now have to finally admit that perhaps we do get more consistent swell runs between June and October. It seems we are on an amazing run again of late with basically a 3 day on 4 day off roster between rideable waves and flat spells.

On the club side of things the new treasurer/secretary Trudie Pegg is a woman on a mission viciously raising sponsorship for the club and with a lot of local businesses putting up there hand the future looks bright. A run of t-shirts incorporating the sponsors logo's are on the planning table so if you know of anyone else keen to jump on board tell them to get in fast before they miss the boat.

Heres a list of those helping out so far.... Hogeys Surf, Moana Sup, Boulder Bank Electrical and Higgs Earthmoving....... with a couple more in the works it looks like we will be able to embark on a few projects over the next coming months including some more nice rocks in the carpark at snappers, a general tidy up of that area, a talk to the harbour master regarding some demo/reconstruction work on the cut and a couple of other cool ideas. Next club day/boardriderr comp will go down mid september and next meeting will be held at Graham Clarks place in the next couple of weeks so stay tuned cos Houston we have a problem!!!

A lot of Shark Hysteria running rampant in the wake of multiple attacks in recent weeks I thought I would share the "extra" interview with Mick Fanning in relation to shark culling and also the photo of Boris the resident Bronzey at the Glen. I personally witnessed the deliberately targeted catch and release of the fish pictured and it took only 15-20 minutes for him to take the big bait the boys put on offer confirming that yes, the ocean, even our own local bay contains sharks. A giant touchwood from myself but as the experts say, you have more chance of having a car accident on your way to work.
“We’re in their domain.” Mick Fanning shares his stance on the controversial shark cull debate.WATCH the Extra Minutes:
