Surfing in Kaikoura

The swell picked up Friday morning so the only obvious thing was to down tools, shoot home for boards and wetsuits and head up the coast to Kaikoura. As we motored north the swell appeared to be picking up and eventually reached its peak on Saturday morning.

Kaikoura, a coastal town two hours drive north of Christchurch, features a rocky shoreline that subsequently boasts a nice lineup of point breaks that make even the most seasoned, well-travelled surfers weak at the knees.

The swell kept on delivering perfect 4ft peaks all weekend, until on Sunday, when we could take no more, we sauntered home, quite pleased with ourselves.
