New Zealand, Part 1

We ended up bringing the left overs of the cyclone Isa with us from Australia to (weather was saying rain and wind for the week) so after picking up the rental Kombi in Wellington we decided to skip inland to see Pax’s family in Whangamomo… yep you try to spell or pronounce it. Muddy mission which included driving a golf car over the saddle (kiwi for big hill) and having way to many drinks with the locals… I also found a horse outside my window one night.

Surf report from the weekend

Not really sure what is happening with time but it’s going quick, and it’s getting so dark now. To dark to surf in the morning and you have to be super quick to sneak in an after work surf in the week. We’re changing the clocks here in Sydney on Sunday so it will be better in the mornings for a bit. But we can really tell we’re going into winter over here. We had a few waves on Sunday, yours truly thought it looked to windy and crappy but had some fun once I got in. Anyways almost weekend again, we’re going north for a change, to Forster to cheer on Snoop in a triathlon and hopefully some waves and maybe some pies to, who knows!
