Coming in August 2009 - Aloha, I am from Hawaii and will be on Te Waipounamu (south island)from 08.19.08 - 09.05.09. The surf looks unreal, and I was wondering if there are any local shops that do rentals? I am going to be there on my honeymoon, and bringing my snowboard, so there is a lot of stuff to pack. Does it get good in the winter? If anyone could let me know, or if anyone wants to go surfing while I am there, I would totally be stoked, and retutn the aloha if anyone ever came to Hawaii.

Dunedin Rippers - Im going to be in Dunedin for a week in February following a scientific egghead conference in Queenstown. Any rippers want to stoke a bro and take me surfing. Ill buy the beer and promise to take you surfing if your ever in California.

Water temp - The water does get cold in winter but if your not a pussy you'll be sweet. I surft all through winter in a oneil psyco 3/2 with a vest underneth. The ice cream headaches make you feel alive!!!

wetsuit for S. Island - Midway down S. Island (Timaru) the sea goes to 7.5 degrees in July. Surfers use 5.2 mm or the new super-stretch neoprene of 4 mm. All wear hood, gloves, boots. The further S. you go the colder it gets. Crank the heater of your car 20 minutes before reaching the break so you're cooking by the time you hit the ocean. That way you'll have an hour plus in the water.

Wetsuit? - I am getting mixed reports on the wet suit needed for this area coming for a visit end of feb. I have both a 4mm and 6mm but not sure which would be best. thanks
