Mount comp is officially cancelled January 23, 2010 by Kirk Beyer (Surfer)

After lengthy consideration Surfing New Zealand has had to cancel the first event of the Hyundai Pro Longboard Tour that was scheduled to run on the 2-3 January.

The Mount comp has just been officially

The event was first postponed and surfing NZ had hoped that they would be able to reschedule the event but the full calendar through the summer months has made this too difficult.

As a result of the cancellation, Hyundai have asked that we make the final event of the Tour at Port Waikato on the 26 – 27 March a six-star event.  That means the prize money will be boosted to $6,800 for the event ($1,500 for first in the open men’s division).

So I am now only going to 3 of the 4 contests, missing out on the Dunedin comp cause im at a wedding.

Castle point comp and Monday at Lyall Bay January 6, 2010 by Kirk Beyer (Surfer)

I didnt end up going to the Scotty and Lee Memorial Comp on the weekend because the swell looked too small. I was up bright and early ready to go but after checking the reports I made the call to bail. It was a good call too, because they had to postpone the comp until Sunday night and ran most of it on Monday (and I had to work Monday).

I can’t find the official results of the comp yet, but I will post them when I get them. I have heard that they had good waves Sunday night with a howling offshore and 2-3ft surf, but Monday was the day – they scored some epic waves for the comp on monday.

I rocked up to Realsurf to start at 8am and nearly cried!  It was one of those 4times a year epic surfs at Lyall Bay and I had to work!! I managed to get out at lunchtime and after work in the arvo, but check out these photos of the morning. Photos are taken by local surfer Shane Ives, if you were out in the morning he may have got a shot of you – email him to check greenwall@surf.co.nz  – Surfer in the photos is Realsurf worker/rider Jeramy Buckley.

First comp of 2010 December 30, 2009 by Kirk Beyer (Surfer)

The Hyundai Pro Longboard Tour is about to begin for 2010!

The first contest is this weekend, 2nd and 3rd of January at Mount Maunganui.

Im heading up on Friday in the van full of heapsa Mountain Dew. Im gonna be walking the beach giving away Mountain Dew when I’m not competiting so come find me for a drink.

The weather report for the weekend is looking pretty good but unfortunately the surf report isn’t looking as flash, check it out below. Im taking a 10′ board for the small waves so that I can atleast stand up if its as small as the report is saying it will be!

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Mumsdollar Wellington show!! December 7, 2009 by Kirk Beyer (Surfer)

kirk-beyer-profile-clear-70-new1I was priviledged to organise and run the Wellington show of Mumsdollars final tour before they break up as a band.

Mumsdollar are my favourite NZ band, they are so good!  And on Saturday night they played the best concert I’ve ever been to.  About 550 people showed up to The Rock church at 7pm for the show.

We had a Mountain Dew fridge on stage for the band to give out cans to the audience and drink between songs. The auditorium got so hot that all 276 cans were given out… as an organiser of the event I freak out about drinks being spilt on the carpet cause I have to clean it up or pay for it – but cause everyone was so hot, out of 276 cans of Mountain Dew not one drip was spilt on the floor!! Stoked!!

What a mean show, check these photos taken by my mate Josh Barr  (www.joshbarr.com)

Saturday at Tbay November 30, 2009 by Kirk Beyer (Surfer)

kirk-beyer-profile-clear-70-new1Saturday was all time at Titahi Bay!!

I surfed in the morning – howling onshore but some nice 4ft waves coming through then went home for some bacon and eggs.
At 12.30 it went offshore so back down the road to the beach I went and surfed for 3hours in perfect 3ft offshore waves. The only issue was the crowds! I dont know who most of them were or where they came from, but everyone who owns a surfboard in Wellington seemed to be out.
I went back out at 5pm when the tide started to pick the swell up again, had another epic surf, this time in a short arm 2/2 wetty – yes the water is actually warming up in Wellington!!

Gotta be stocked with 6 and a half hours of surfing for a Saturday!  Especially when Titahi bay usually goes flat after 30mins of offshore wind on it!

Did anyone else score it??

The Steetsoundz sale! November 10, 2009 by Kirk Beyer (Surfer)

kirk-beyer-profile-clear-70-new1Last Saturday and Sunday were stunner days in Wellington, perfect weather to have a massive car audio sale!!

Streetsoundz Wellington were literally giving away car speakers! First thing Saturday morning there were about 60 guys and gals waiting outside the door ready to rush in to be one of the first 5 customers that received a free $120 Fusion Sub woofer. The shop was jam packed for the first couple of hours and then had a consistant flow of bargain hunters for the rest of the weekend.

a full fridge The radio stations were there and ofcourse Mountain Dew was there! I had the fridge inside the shop next to the DJ table where people could help themselves as they were picking their soundz!

Streetsoundz have finished their sale but always have good deals going on so go in and have a chat to them, do your car and your ears a favour!! You can check out some more pics from the weekend here…
