The First DiggaSURF Punt For Cash— Part Two


Welcome back. So where were we…Oh thats right, the lads have hit the water it’s 2 foot with the odd 3 footer. Braedon starts well snags a left finds the lip and launches( see below). Unfortunately he doesnt quite ride it out in the wash and well incomplete is incomplete, so it doesnt count.

Close but no cigar. Braedons first attempt. At least you can see his O'Neill stickers clearly!!

Matty is next, he races a little right throws it up but is unsuccesful too. The waves are actually very punchy for their size and tending to towards being too sucky for punts.

Fifteen minutes into the session a goodsize lump rears up near Matt, he thinks he is at Matakana, he swings, strokes twice and then….well I think the sequence below explains it well enough….

Coro Air sep091

Doh!!! Not a great start, Braedon pumps the air with his fist as Matt has to run back to the car for his back-up. His back up board is a 200 year old 5’7 fish, and the grimace on his face says it all, a too small and wide stick in sucky conditions is not helping his campaign. He refocuses and hits the brine for his second time in less than half an hour. The ramp-able wedges are few and fair between and the two end up having a small tube duel.

Braedon under the lip and not above it like he is suppose to be...

Some Belgium tourists went spastic on the horn of their camervan when he exited this one...

So one board down, no airs landed, and the lads are going gangbusters in the tube instead of the air, I’m standing scratching my head, Rangi is up the beach just scratchin’ da Rash, and Blake is chasing his fedora up the beach while we wait….and wait. But things do get better but you’ll just have to wait until the next post….
