Fishing Frenzy!



Dan reports from the weekend (bad news about Pointies, at least until winter....)

"With Pointies permanent closed due to surf life saving training days, we had headed to Jinshan. Slightly more than a shore lap with loads of contestants in the water did little to inspire a session. Luckily we had a borrowed SUP that provided loads of fun.
Towards the end of the afternoon a few fishermen decided to up the casualty factor and hauled their fishing boat in to the small peak for a bit of extra fun."

Shameless!


This heat and lack of swell has meant I am shamelessly sourcing photos from Surfella the last couple of weeks. Not much action again, and the water temps are pretty much "warm bath" like, so it isn't even very refreshing. Maybe some of our other members got some surf??
(thanks again to photos from surfella)

Dieses surft in Deutschland







video

Our own pointyhat member Andrew witnessed this bizarre surfing in a river in Munich on his recent holiday. I have to say this is real dedication to the craft and they look like they're really carving a few good lines here too.

On Golden Pond

Wushi gang is a pretty picture in the early golden light: if you can get your mind around the lack of swell and the crowd! (photo courtesy of Surfella)

We're back!






Dave's big purple mal got a workout as did the shorter boards as Merewether served up day after day, week after week of solid groundies with light to strong offshores. A very solid winter season.
I'll post some shots of freezing Dunedin (how does Tucker do it?!) as soon as I scramble a few together that don't make me look too soft...
Send some shots along Pointies if you have any...
