Popped down to Maori Bay today for a time with the guys today. It was utter madness in the car park, cant say I’ve seen it that bad before, which meant there was alot of people at the beach. Was to be expected with the long weekend and great weather today. The surf was pretty average, (not that I’m an expert on that sort of thing) but there was alot of surfers in the water on such a hot day… and long weekend. The one thing that did really surprise me was all the sun burnt people walking around, and so many of them. Totally crazy in when your under the New Zealand sun, but it was great to see most of the young kids all covered up.
