Thats the comment just made by Sam Price from Auckland.

He’s talking about the suitability of Tahunanui Beach for skim-boarding.

According to the Nelson Mail “skim boarding was more established in Canada, the United States and Australia.”

The local Nelson Mail went on to quote him as saying;

The beaches in Nelson are incredible for it. Even a high profile Canadian guy came her 18mths ago, and he said its as good as anywhere in the world.

Mr Price would appear to have a vested interest as he runs a company selling Skim Boards (oxsskimboards.com) nonetheless its yet another factoid about our beloved Tahunanui Beach, and you really don’t need any more evidence that the thousands and thousands of holiday makers that pack the Holiday Park at Tahunanui each Xmas holidays to point to that.
