2011 saw The Hyundai National Surfing Championships contested on one of New Zealand's most exposed coastlines, Dunedin!
A town predominantly known for its student occupancy and legendary Rugby team, its also a coastline riddled with some of the finest surfing set ups known to man.
The event was a huge success for both Surfing NZ and its sponsors Hyundai NZ and Sol, even though we were consistently bombarded with the classic Otago weather patterns of 4 seasons in one day! As a location for surfer, spectator and photographer, the Esplanade at the South end of St Clair could be a better place to base the competition from.
The swell was contestable for all 4 days of competition and up and down the coast was firing with numerous surf stories of epic sessions being told in detail at The Esplanade every morning!
This video clip highlights some of best surfers from around of NZ going head to head for the prestigious titles of National Champion 2011!
