Howdy everybody!! Some real hit and miss surf of late has been enough to drive even the most permanent frother to drink as bad winds and even worse corresponding tides have been cursing us of late but never fear, The change is in the air and the sea as warmer water is now causing some unstable low pressure cells to form on top of Tasman frontal systems and looking forward over the next couple of weeks we may see a fair bit more swell action from the Northwest but disecting the wind changes will be the key to success. Finding those windows of glassiness and coinciding with the tides will be the real challenge!!

Despite the inclement weather and virtual flatness Sunday morning the Nelson Boardriders club day went down without a hitch as the swell kicked in through the afternoon with organisers even cheeky enough to go on hold between 5pm and 6pm to wait for the forecast wind change. The wind clocked offshore the swell picked up and well..... the rest is history.
