    Hey! Just wondered what my fellow hubbers has in terms of surfexperience? Any Kelly Slaters or Layne Bleachleys out there?

    Personally, I have surfed since the start of 2005 when I visited the magical kingdom known as Australia. Its just such a fantastic feeling of riding a wave of the purest type of energy, I've tried describing this feeling in one of my hubs by the way.. called "Surfing - The ultimate experience", check it out here if you like:

    Living in Norway I was born with skis on my feet, which gradually evolved into a snowboard when I was about 12, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that I am alot better at snowboarding than at surfing.. however, working hard on improving my surfing wink

    So, what are your views on surfing and snowboarding? Any good stories to share?

        Yep and drank we sure did at Queenstown and Central Otago - we drank mostly Pinot and Sav Blancs. Drove all over south island for 2 weeks. One of the most memorable holidays ever.

        Nah, the pic was taken at Bondi beach in Sydney. I recognise the way it breaks smile

    Just grabbed a quick pic from a Christchurch beach(South Island,NZ) but the North Island generally has the better surf anyway.

    You are quite right though awsydney NZ is not like Hawaii when it comes to the BIG surf ,but the beauty of it , if the surfs not up there are like 100 other things to keep that andrenalin pumping!!

    How long did you visit NZ for Awsydney? ,how could you have missed the waves lol
