2016 - Best Year Ever?

A very important next 10 days in the history of Surf-City as the next lot of forecast charts roll out we are set to find out if our miraculous year of surf is set to continue here in Nelson.
Sure I can hear the claims now from the older boys of back to back cyclone swells back in the day but If we really want to get critical about this we could claim every low pressure sytem is a cyclone right? For more accurate "data" i  cast my memory back nearly 4 years ago now to the birth of my boy Eli and how around mid 2012 we had 13 weeks in a row of back to back lows and swells.

We could cast a shout out to Kaikoura and Christchurch and ask how the last 3 months have been for them because generally If its pumping in Nelson aside from Taylors Mistake things are pretty average over "that side".

At the end of the day It is all trivial but If we get another couple of swells within the next month one would have to undoubtedly say this 2016 could well be.........."The Best Year Ever".
