Where in the land Of Whaikikamukau do you surf
Thanks I'll do that. I've been surfing at Taylors mainly, and I'm getting pretty keen to head into Waikuku first chance I get. After buying a board and wetsuit probably though
How's Taylors after the Christchurch quake? Wow I'd try to buy local all the business in Christchurch must be smashed and a little bit of trade might help out.
For the overseas posters Christchurch in New Zealand has been hit by three major earthquakes, Sumner the beach suburb the CBD and Taylor's Mistake on the other side of the headland were smashed and some parts of the city are unliveable.
They have had over 7300 after shocks some as big as the initial quake.
Reubs hope you and your family are fine.
Mate go well in your learning, I had quite a fondness for Christchurch, go surf Maungamanu for me.
Fond memories of fresh caught cooked lobster and fresh baked crusty bread and organic butter spread sitting at the caravan with my wife just munching out with Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc wine while viewing the seal colony. NUM NUM NUM NUM.
I caught my first wave on a standup board there in 2001. Not sure exactly what beach it was....but it was a pretty steep twisty road over the top and down to the little beach. Was a good day. Ive heard from people there that a lot of people have gone to oz.....the water is meant to be too badly polluted to surf...not sure how accurate that is.
