Lost Wetsuit

On Monday, October 10, in the afternoon I lost my wetsuit in Blackhead. I don`t know if I left it on the ground or maybe on the roof of the car when we started driving. It may have fallen on the road to Dunedin. So if someone found it or know someone who found it please contact me, I would be very grateful because is my only chance to continue surfing. Cheers and thanks

Join St Clair Action Group

A group has been formed to urge the Dunedin City Council to take some educated action around the dramatic erosion that is occurring as a result of the sea wall design at St Clair.
St Clair Action Group is on Facebook and is a healthy forum for robust discussion around the issue with lots of experts coming out of the woodwork to share the facts.
Anyone is welcome to join the group with the objectives to educate the group and encourage DCC to make its decisions based on the science. The group's first priority is to protect the safety of beach users at high tide. Join here:
