RED TIDE

The Northern Surfing Championships were held at Waipu Cove during the weekend.  We had just gone over for a lunch with friends and couldn’t believe the problem we had finding a park!  They’re having a huge problem with red algae (seaweed) washing up at present, and had to clear the beach off where the surfing was going on.  You can see the piles of algae on the beach…

and in these pictures you can see the redness of the waves…

…all to do with the El Nino weather patterns.
