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.

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!!!
