Piha Rulz - I've been there heaps and it's so over-rated. Apparently it used to barrel but now it's more mushburger than barrel

Localism - Bit of unusual localism here today, some nice person wrote "KOOK" on our car in surf wax, first time this has happened in the 5 years surfing here, even more strange because we did nothing to deserve it, we were surfing out the way of everyone, pretty rude really, not sure what possessed the person to do it, they are possibly brain damaged or born mentally retarded, otherwise i see no reason why they would do this.

Shark attacks - There have been 4 fatalities in Dunedin, only one was at aramoana, and that was back in 1968, so its not as shark infested as that dude made out
