Lets Go Decembering....

Happy December People, Officially the start of summer!! Water temps continue to rise, prodical sons return home, christmas parties, you name it..... its happening!! With the possibility of 3 maybe even 4 seperate swells between now and Christmas we can also add that to our hand rubbing gesture.

Now heres the top 5 reasons to rate Summer:

5: All those crew you dont see surfing through winter show up out of the woodwork but you can pull     the year long surfer "drop in" card on them.

4: With crowd numbers so large at Schnappers it becomes like Waimea Bay where there is NO drop     in rule.

3: Certain Days you can actually surf in boardshorts.

2: Dawn Patrols take on a whole new meaning.

1: Returning home to Nelson after a 25 year Hiatus you can still paddle straight into the Snappers top    5 pecking order cos you are a local after all. (joined by 4 other Hiatians ).

Swell Season On !!!
