The Bay of Plenty

It’s called the Bay, where once no one went to b/c it’s kinda soft but does break. Now you go there only to find it packed out with loads of people learning to surf, riding long boards and mostly a lot of chics.DSC_1531 DSC_5068 DSC_5123 DSC_5125 DSC_5131

Getting Warmer

At last we’re feeling the warmth of some warm water rising to the surface. The week is kinda crazy with it being Easter and the beaches packed out.DSC_4887 DSC_4908 DSC_4910 DSC_4913

Lances

When it’s small and windy the left at Lances is a good call. Long boards are the best thing to ride which offers the longest rides possible. Water is still chilly and April is just around the corner.DSC_1489 DSC_1502 DSC_4698 DSC_4771 DSC_4776 DSC_4804

Adios Amigos

So my boys left last night for their journey home. Nothing like seeing someone who you love and will miss but that’s better than never seeing them at all. Waves still coming in and new clients as well. Safe travels to all coming and going.DSC_4552 DSC_4610 DSC_4632 DSC_4640 DSC_4685

Windy Again

Your weather there affects our weather here with strong winds which makes the water colder. It’s tough to get away from the winds and the cold water but we do what we have to.DSC_4465 DSC_4494 DSC_4496 DSC_4517 DSC_4532 DSC_4542

FIRING

So the new swell has arrived and it’s firing. Good waves coming in on most spots or all of them. Looks like a long tiring week of work ahead for everyone.DSC_4397 DSC_4412 DSC_4414 DSC_4448

Carolina Boys

It’s always good to have some friends from home visit and surf with you. Good timing on arrival and of the swell hitting. The week looks to be awesome and I know we’re going to have a great time.DSC_4168 DSC_4183 DSC_4184 DSC_4204 DSC_4322 DSC_4353

Windy & Small

Just when you think it’s about to turn on, it doesn’t. Maybe the new swell is hitting in the morning. Keep your fingers crossed.DSC_4131 DSC_4136 DSC_4144 DSC_4155 DSC_4160

Here & There

Surfing 3 different spots in one day isn’t so hard around here. Plenty of waves to choose from and if you’re not to picky it’s pretty easy. The hard part is finding one uncrowded.DSC_1324 DSC_1377 DSC_3789 DSC_3807 DSC_3841

Up & Down

As the swell drops through the week there’s always a new one behind it to bring it back up. Works out good for those who want it smaller so they can adjust to the conditions before the big stuff come back around.DSC_3503 DSC_3552 DSC_3584 DSC_3638 DSC_3653 DSC_3662
