WHAT’S in a name? Well quite a lot if you’re look­ing at the names of spots in some adrenaline sports. From moun­tain bik­ing to snow sports to surf­ing, you move through a con­torted mine­field of mean­ing from the fear­some to the fan­ci­ful.

Of course surf­ing has some of the most de­scrip­tive in terms of a sense of fore­bod­ing or dan­ger, like Sui­cides, Grave­yards and Bone Yards on the North Shore. Of course you get a bit of ex­tra thrown in be­cause surf spots al­ways seem to be plu­ral.
