Deep Freeze - Mid winter East Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. Cold gray morning with low dark clouds that promised rain or worse as we drove from Christchurch over the hills to Taylor's Mistake which is located between Whitewash Head and Penguin Po

ok - Taylors is pretty average in any swell under 3ft. It does have way more power than most chch beachies but it only really gets hollow when its 5ft+. the waves are generally fat aswell meaning if you do end up bailing mid barrel your in for a solid pounding because of the amount of water in the lip of the wave. banks have to work otherwise its just a thumping closeout, or a fast take off that quickly drops away to nothing

Taylors=Nice - Cant believe the moaning on here from some peeps! try living in Shanghai and get some gratitude! Well I have prob surfed Taylors more than any other break and I love it. Can be fast, can be heavy (esp in winter) and can be beautiful. Man do I miss it!
