Flat Spell Update

Hey again folks, Just thought I would give you half a run down on whats not happening in the next 10 days and thats surf in Nelson, A little bit of flicky Northwest-West thru the middle of next week but nothing of real interest until around the 7th of Feb where we finally see some action from the tropics,
What does this mean? Wellm basically weve all been spoiled rotten since New Years so take it on the chin and maybe even consider a trip down the west or east coasts. Now not going so far as to tell anyone where and when the waves are happening this is more just an overview and if you want the nitty-gritty then may I suggest putting your nose deep into those forecast sites and good luck,

Hit the ground Running 2017

I hear a lot of people complaining lately "Where is our Summer?"... Now obviously they are not surf city surf fiends because if you have stuck around Nelson for the last few weekes it has done nothing but reign swell supreme with back to back to even back! Consistent swell on tap since the New Year with someone I know having had 16 surfs already this year not including half a dozen surf lessons thrown in along the way!!!
Apologies for not updating this blog more regularly of late but from now on a more concerted effort to do so.

Our luck began New Years Day and since then we have had a super consistent run with most of us getting our fair share and with sudden southwest changes the crowd shift has been over the hill more often than not with crowds of 20plus fighting like seagulls over chips as the local bar deals out happy hour,

To cut a long story short its been a cracker of a start to the year and with a few crew heading off to the Duke surfing festival in a few weeks followed by the Cape Classic late February it looks set to get busier another flick through on the cards tommorow so hopefully see you out there amongst it.
