Team Dunnos - the trip up

Just some of the Dunnos team who travelled up in three cars together. Here we stopped in Timaru at the skate park.
Below, the journey up, Jonos car.

Below, Andy going incognito with the pizza base from lunch ( note he has a seatbelt on) and right as we were pulling in to a petrol station in Christchurch he leaneed out the window to call Jonos car into the station too, relaxing the belt off his shoulder to do so, immediately we were boxed in by a police car and Andy was accused of not wearing his seatbelt, and promptly given a $150 ticket. Nothing any of us could say made any difference, even the offer of photographic evidence.

Finally got to Kaiks at about 5pm and booked in to the Backpackers, then shot off to check Meatworks. Two pics below, last thing at night and first thing in the morning the first day of the 3 day comp.

6am get up for a 7am start at Meatworks, A stunning sunrise greeted us, and after a slight delay the comp was underway. Above, dawn at Meatworks with the judges tents semi erected.
Below, the boys go out for a free surf. Left Jono, right Nathan.

Jordan had a run of bad luck with his board snapping a fin within ten mins in the water, later in the comp after changing to twin fins, he snapped one of those too, and had to borrow a board for the rest of the weekend, which wasn't much bigger than his shoe size.

Post for Day 1 of the comp will be up thursday night.
