Finally winter pumps

Awatere River Point Break, Blenheim
Surfing: short board
7:30 pm - 12 pm Sunday. July 11. 2010
my rating 3 star rating
Wind Direction: W Wind Strength: none Swell Direction: SE Swell Size: head high Tide: Low - Rising.

7am and a -4 frost my 1st thought was back to bed till 10, second thought was na sweet no crowds so we were out there. When we got there It was pretty much pumping head to head and a half, peeling and no one to be seen, but when we paddled out the southerly drift was humming managed to pick off a few but was hard to stay on the spot ended up too deep and getting worked alot. We went in after about an hr and a half and as the tide changed the drift disappered so it was wet wetties on and round to didnt last too long due to all the earlier paddling but again managed a couple so was well worth it. As we drove away at 5hrs later there were still bombs going through best day out there for months.

7 thumbs up!
