Aramoana Paddle Out - October 16th at 12 noon

16th October at 12 noon 85 surfers paddled out at The Spit beach Aramoana to form a circle of celebration for the Aramoana/Spit wave.

The event was held at the mole end of the beach away from the actual surf break for safety reasons. The actual surfbreak is in the background under the cliffs.

Wow, a circle of sufers, not even where the waves break. The dredgers will be shaking in their boots.

Nice sentiment but thats all it is. But I suppose it makes eeveryone feel like they are doing something.
