Cold Water Classic - Kaikoura 2009 Day 1 part1

Kim, Helena, Jean and myself left on the Thursday morning with more gear packed into Kims' stationwagon than a sardine can could fit under pressure. The rest of the Dunedin Crew.. Hayley, Tash, Homer and Jamie in a 4WD.. Jono, leroy, Jimi and Tom in Jono's stationwagon.. Andy, Nathan and Chris in another car, Steve & Ben in another and finally MB and Geordi. Again a good showing of support for the last SISA event of the year from the Otago Surf Clubs.

Above: Friday morning at Meatworks, a clean green set peaks out back. Homers' truck on left with the FCS tent which was a godsend all weekend with protection from the sun, rain and wind. Below left: rashies all laid out ready for the first Open mans' heats ... red flag ready to drop as the sun rose to a crisp but clear morning. Right and Below: The first few heats of the day ran as the surf picked up and the sun made for some stunning light.

Top Right: Nash Robertson. Below, more images from the Open heats round 1. Below Left: Levi O'Connor, Right: Dave Melville ?

Above: an empty in the comp area. Below Left: Andy Sutherland, Right and Below: unknown

Below: Freesurfing down the beach, and a shot from there towards the comp area.

Heath doesn't have long hair, and doesn't surf like that. No offence to you Heath.
