Pleasant, Sumner, Lyttelton, Diamond Harbour, Governors Bay, Akaroa Another Hawke surf book surfaces WELL KNOWN Sumner surfer Nina Young (above) is among many local surfers and identities in a new Warren Hawke (inset) book. NZ Surf: The Collection – Vol 1 takes an in-depth look at Scarborough Beach with its specialist Malibu-style waves, surfing personalities, local board riding clubs and the international surfing event, The Single Fin Mingle. There’s an interview with event co-founder Ambrose McNeill, who talks in detail about the philosophy behind the competition and just how wonderful it is to bring a world class group of international surfers to Sumner for a week each year. Surf coach, musician and graphic design artist, Brad King, discusses his design work behind ‘The Mingle’ posters and stickers. He admits that the greatest thing for him has been taking up long boarding and having fun in the waves. This is Mr Hawke’s second surfing book. Artist Josh O’Rourke completed the design and layout – a massive task as the book contains more than 500 photos and 60,000 words. •Turn to page 4 Freedom campers ignore fines • By Sarla Donovan BANKS Peninsula Community Board members have been told almost half of freedom campers don’t pay their fines. One hundred and twenty freedom campers were ticketed for breaking freedom camping bylaws in Canterbury over the past year. Only 55 percent of those tickets were paid, according to city council staff. City council head of regulatory compliance Tracey Weston addressed community concerns around freedom camping at a Banks Peninsula Community Board meeting on Monday. Ms Weston said fully self-contained camper vans parking at Naval Point in Lyttelton, the Akaroa Sports Complex, the Akaroa Yacht Club and the Akaroa Lighthouse weren’t breaking the law, provided they only stayed for two days. She said there was nothing to stop the vans parking there all day, as there were currently no time restrictions on parking, such as a P60 constraint. At Childrens Bay, however, freedom camping was prohibited. •Turn to page 4 Been paid out from EQC or needing a facelift?
