As a surfer and a photographer, one would presume I know my shiz when it comes to swell and weather forecasts. I kinda do… but when you start talking to Greeny (Paul Greenland) about the afformentioned, well it is kinda like being the small endowed guy at the urinal at the pub, inadequate and out of your league. I’ve never been out-endowed at a pub urinal but I have heard from Greeny that it’s embarrasing. I don’t even really need to check the Bouy reports, If it is going to be on I get a detailed analysis via skype, text or FBook from Greeny 3 days before anyone else is in the know. The lad knows his shit. A lot like his mate Napes and fins really. I’ve made boards most my life but Napes is talking tech fin shit only Slater and a NASA scientist would understand. Must be something in the water out West Aucks that’s breeding some weird surfing periphial savants… Lucky they surf ok too. Nothing worse than a surfing know-it-all that surfs like Jadson Andre switchfoot after an all night bender on cactus juice.
Greeny is starting up his own website called AucklandSurf. He will have web cams and some bloody detailed surf reports and predictions operational soon. Something that can be quite lacking at times on other sites. Here’s Greeny giving his surf report for Piha yesterday and also a bit of cheek to his future competition…
…and no he isnt Forrest Gump as the first photo on this post suggests, The Goblin has been mucking around with one of those Go-Pro’s with some ok results. This clip below is from the same day as some of the photos….
Anyway Greeny just got given a shit load of free beer so this is the only reason he getting such mad props on my site…..
Just joking, I dont drink beer.
