Super 8 Series Surf contest, Fitzroy Beach, NZ. Aug, 2019

Okay, NZ surf is epic.  The best part is you don’t have to venture far from town to feel like you’re “living it” too. 

The 2019 Super 8 Series at Fitzroy Beach, sponsored by New Plymouth Surfriders Club, was yesterday.  Sets were farther out and “bigger than it looks!”   But for reals… waves faces were 3.5 meters (11 foot).     I met some new folks including a cool high schooler who knows no fear, not even level 2 physics class rattles him (pink jersey rider below).  Surf Lifesaving gal was ready.
