Rolling Stones has always been known as a heavy wave..a right hand boulder reef with the vertical take off over a barreling ledge ,a hot and heavy wave surfed by hot napier locals. the name rolling stones aplies to the large boulders on the bottom, can be heard moving so be CAREFUL.....

I agree - Yeah the latest is the graffity... "This land stays in Maori hands"... sprayed everywhere... the joke is that the development is going aheah regardless of Maori demands. Anyway... if the land stays in Maori hands it will just be covered with falling down houses and rusting car wrecks and all the usual litter. People who have no respect for themselves or their environment deserve no respect from others.

Local Maori - Yes,... they live off the dohl... ie our tax money... complain of poverty when obesity is their biggest medical problem... and steal our stuff.... then on top of it they demand resect... I have now totally lost any respect that I ever had. Well done guys.Time NZ stoped being so politically correct and started with being realistic...lets share the sea....
