Photos from Roxy Canterbury Champs

Hosted by Christchurch womens' surf club Tubular Belles, the Canterbury Womens Surf Champs day one began on Valentines Day with a glorious sunrise. 1 to 2 foot clean surf in light offshore winds promised some small but fun waves for the comp.
Sorry girls the pics took a few days to get up, I've been on holiday this week from work, and just wanted some time out. I didnt manage to photograph everyone, as I only got the still camera out when the finals started. There is however a mini film coming hopefully in the nexy week of the trip up from Dunedin with Hayley, and our "only spend $20 all weekend" challenge. Thanks heaps to Heather & Noel and Trish & Dave for their hospitality in offering us a place to stay and a good feed. Your garden fresh veges were so welcome Trish.
