Welcome to the blogosphere from a New Zealander on the swim team at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. I'll try and keep this updated with pictures, results and thoughts from a kiwi living in the states, and the ice.

Beach time in north cal
I got to spend the day out at half moon bay on Thursday. It is famous for mavericks, a surfing location where waves regularly hit 8m high and 24m wide. In the winter there is a competition held where surfers get notice of huge waves and have like 24 to get there butts down to the surf. The prize for the competition is US$10,000 (if my sources are correct)
I didn't catch any narley waves that day but took a nice walk down the coast.
Then my friend took me to an authentic Mexican burrito place. And it was definatly an American sized meal! but don't worry, I finished it.
