The sale and sound off! May 13, 2010 by Kirk Beyer (Surfer)

StreetSoundz was packed from open till close on the weekend because of their massive annual sale! There were some super cheap deals going down that people just couldn’t turn down. With a Mountain Dew as you walk in, good sounds and friendly help – shopping was made easy! Check these guys out – they slept outside so they were first in line and got a free sub woofer!

The shop was hard to miss with the huge Mountain Dew can outside on the Basin Reserve, and the mean soundz were hard to choose from with so many choices!

On Saturday there was a ‘Sound Off’ competition where anyone could enter their car and sound system! The Panasonic truck came down to show off and to measure who’s car produced the loudest sound. A Subaru Legacy with 6 15″subs won the contest with a top volume of 150DB!!

Long time no hear… May 7, 2010 by Kirk Beyer (Surfer)

Hey guys, Sorry its been so long! I have been away too many times to count and been so busy I cant remember what day it is haha
What have I been up to lately? A bunch of everything to be honest. Was playing the drums at EC10 in Fielding over Easter which was pretty sweet.

I’ve also been surfing (sneaking out during the day) to Lyall bay on a couple of good as swells. But its been mainly the Wellington traditional howling onshore surfs at Titahi Bay for me.

Who else hates day light savings? Losing light at 6pm makes it pretty hard to get a surf ay! I think I need to invest in some spot lights so we can do this…

I’ve also been wakeboarding heaps lately ay. After watching the videos on Brad Smeele’s MD blog I realise that I’m not very good at all haha but I so enjoy doing at. Can nearly land a 360 in the air… that any good? or still a rookie?

Well theres a bit of an update, anyone been scoring those sick swells up North? I saw this shot on surf.co this morning of Raglan – hope its like this on Sunday, im up there for a wedding!

The last comp of the Tour March 30, 2010 by Kirk Beyer (Surfer)

The Hyundai Pro Longboard tour is done and dusted for another year. The last comp of the circuit was held at The Mighty Port Waikato on the weekend where we had a solid swell with onshore winds both contest days.

I won my 2nd round heat but kept sliding round and falling off in the quarter finals, I made the rookie mistake of putting too small fins in for the size of the surf. So 13th is where I finished up in the contest, not where I was aiming to finish but its alot better than my effort at Whangamata.

Being the last contest of the tour Hyundai put on a massive party after the prize giving with ‘The Feelers’ playing and a huge fireworks display! A big congrats to my mate Dylan Barnfield for winning the Tour this year, check the photo below (what the photo doesn’t show is that he kicked me in the face hahaha) and check Ant and Daniels faces – true Kodak moment!
