Stormy Spring Bling

Murphys law, organise a surf fun day, and the weather packs up. The dedicated Big Rock crew arrived at the top domain Brighton at noon to a mush-burgered out Brighton break with strong chilling winds. As I type this i just can't understand how the weather report tonight came up with Dunedin being 14 degrees?
Consensus was to move the event around the corner to back beach.
Only five went out for a surf, and due to the un-fun nature of the weather and surf it was decided to revisit the Sping Bling event in a months time when the weather had settled a bit. We did however hold a mini comp and gave out the second place cards, and will save the trophies for the next event when more people could come and take part.

As all Big Rock events do, things got a bit twisted and the Pre-Surf Rap was held at the end with some entertaining and worrying performances. This morphed into a skate session and a human speed camera test which got some local residents out of their houses and hovering at their gates to watch the show. (short film to come)
