Blackhead Breaks Hard



Finally got round to loading the pics on from my quick shoot round at Blackhead yesterday, I decided that I would take the rest of the afternoon and whole evening off to just do nothing, unlike the last 3 months I have been working constantly, not taking any time off to do nothing. Anyway, it was around 3pm I got there, a fair swell powering through with some larger 4-5 foot sets, inconsistent peaks.. and a very high tide. so the rocks were covered by surf. Unfortunately it was hard for a few to see rocks submerged, which resulted in a snapped board and one with bent fins both within 2 mins of each other.

If you're going to be flatting with others and be at or near St Clair I'd put aside about $80-120 a week for a room, sharing with three-four others, If its a 1br studio.. you can get one for around $160-80 a week. See trademe classified flatmate wanted adds at : 57648248 57538205 57951110

yeah i saw a flat that was like 30 seconds walk from st clair 4 bedroom and it worked out to be something like $70 each, look like quite a nice flat from the shots too.

nice shots nic, there was another guy out there that snapped his stringer without actually snapping the board, so bh claimed 3 boards in one day yesterday
