Whatarangi

Whatarangi turns it on
5 star rating Stand Up Paddle Boarding: Surfing

Made the call to head over the hill and check out the Palliser coast. It was getting late in the day (2:30 by the time we left my place) so we knew we were pushing it a bit. Chris and I took big wave | more...

Wedge mission

Gnaraloo

Wind!
5 star rating Windsurfing: Waves

Windier! The seabreeze came in ridiculously early - about 7:30am. From experience, an early seabreeze means a slow build and not necessarily that strong. But by 12:30 it looked good and much windier | more...

Afterglow

Mellow
4 star rating Stand Up Paddle Boarding: Just Cruising

Hailing and sailing
