Atmosphere

I'm not a local, but I thought I would put up a couple of pics from an end of week mission myself and a couple of friends did.
Apologies for the quality, they are from a video camera, and it was getting dark.
We chased a big south swell, but it was flat and onshore the next morning. It seems the winter season has been exceptional this year - 2002.
Everytime I've been to Gisborne it has a had nice clean waves. Like alot of NZ surf areas, it's a little out of the way from the larger cities, but life is great once you are there.

General

A nice hollow wave when I have seen it, the flat rocks underneath help make for consistent peaks.

Pines is Sick - This place rules, I lived in Okitu for 6 months about 5 years ago and basically had a surf every day, It would crank all the time. Crowds did not seem to be a problem back then especially when it was big and locals were sweet once you talked to them. There was a hot left off the rock outcrop which threw out some fat barrels. Golden sand sunshine and beutiful girls hot surf, couldnt ask for a better place to be......I cant wait to go back sometime.
