CY­CLONE MAD­NESS

New Zealand Surfing - - News -

With no un­der-cer­tainty there is noth­ing that cre­ates more hype amongst surfers than when a cy­clone ap­pears on our weather map. More of­ten than not all they pro­duce are strong on­shore winds and heavy rain dur­ing our sum­mer hol­i­day pe­riod. Yet ev­ery so of­ten they take just the right path needed to pro­duce epic surf con­di­tions that are talked about for years. This sea­son started a lit­tle rough with a few false alarms and myth calls, how­ever the warm trop­ics wer­ent quite fin­ished and through March, April and early May sev­eral cy­clones and sub-trop­i­cal lows de­liv­ered the goods. We show­case a few wares from those sys­tems.

Keone Camp­bell loves to sniff out a good bar­rel and it eats at him when he knows it's fir­ing and he's stuck at work, this par­tic­u­lar day he was granted the day off mid af­ter­noon and hooned on over to an East Coast gem to score the last few mo­ments of the day on sun­set. Looks like the late bird caught the worm this time! Photo: Cory
