      My first ever proper SUP surf with my PPC board, which due to a faulty pump was only just over half inflated :@ Made it probably a lot more difficult than it should have been but it was good fun anyways! And with the thermometer close to 30˚C even at 8.30 this morning and not a cloud in the sky there was no better way to kick off summer! =)

      Another sweet little surf session. Mild NE. Gentle waves. Tide going out and surf dying a bit at the end but overall great morning to go out. Sunday + sunshine + surf = 2 super happy surfers =)

      One of the 3 main surf spots in Christchurch (with Sumner and Taylor's Mistake, more to the south). Long beach with parking and access pretty much all along between the Surf Club at Waimari (north end) to the end of the spit at Southshore (south end). The winds and currents can be quite strong so I wouldn't really recommend for beginners unless it's a glassy calm day (pretty rare here) and you have experienced people with you. The Estuary at South Brighton might be a good place to start tho =) The beach is monitored by lifeguards in the summer months only. Lots of cafes/shops/pubs and restaurants to get a post session food/drink fix around (including a kite boarding shop in New Brighton which also rents SUP gear =)). Usually less windy in mornings and often bigger waves in the winter months. Nice walk along the beach and up the Pier and awesome view from inside the top floor at the Library (by the Pier too).

      Nice wee surf this morning though the waves were breaking pretty harshly. Sunshine and warm enough water. Perfect day! Next time I'll try the SUP in the surf =)
