Boards - Get in touch with Lee at Central Surf for a board - he da man! http://centralsurf.co.nz/ As to the nay sayers about Canterbury - you have no idea - there a whole lot of very good breaks around here - you have to know where you are looking. The peninsular is awesome - perhaps the most exposed area in NZ to all swell directions, and the beaches on the mainland are all good on their day.
