Kaikoura Returned

Just a quick wrap from the long weekend in Kaikoura where our crew of 5 competitors represented Nelson well. The waves were pumping all weekend with the event site situated at Meatworks but this meant when not competing we could duck off to both Mangamanu or Kahutara and get some waves away from the competition mayhem, 

Zac Dillon making the Quarter Finals of the Cadets finish equal 9th and Equal 17th in Juniors  , Emma Pegg Equal 9th in Open Girls , David Pons Equal 33rd in Opens and Jackson Gregory Equal 33rd in Opens and Equal 9th in Longboard, Mark Nichols Equal 17th in Opens Equal 9th in Masters and Equal 17th in Seniors,
To put these numbers into perspective there were 105 competitors in the Open Division alone and 190 Competitors overall so we didnt do too shabby at all !! Especially considering there were about a dozen high profile surfers down from the North Island also!!

A massive thanks to Toby at Moana and John from Hogeys for helping us get there and a GIANT thanks to Trudie Pegg for being surf mum to us all!!
