Thank you so much phoam for once again capturing the mood of an otago surf event,if surfing should ever be considered a sport (god forbid) it is when grommets get to travel and meet new mates and surf new spots and your shots captured many of those grom's having fun.
however i was disappointed to hear "Mr negative pics" was getting all "local" and holier than thou with you, Men harassing women is always pathetic and someone who has publicized Dunedin in so sluttish fashon in the "wavetrack NZsurfing guide" has no high ground to stand upon even in hilly dunedin.
forget his kind us average surfer love your dedication to recording surf culture in dunedin.
