Shirley Boys’ High’s Myka Black (above) powered his way to second in the under-14 section at the national scholastic surf championships in Gisborne after winning a Canterbury title in May. His coach Aaron Lock said he is one of the best surfers coming out of New Brighton. “He definitely has the talent to go pro and had a really good showing at the national event,” he said. Surfing is in the 13-year-old’s PHOTO: CORY, NZ SURFING MAGAZINE blood with his father, Nick, being a handy wave rider too. Lock said Myka’s father was one of the top surfers in the South Island and was helping to coach the Canterbury team. •More results, page 8 • By Sophie Cornish A CRASH-PRONE road in North New Brighton may be narrowed to make it safer. There have been 12 crashes on Palmers Rd between Bowhill and New Brighton Rds between 2005 and 2016, New Zealand Transport agency data shows. Now the city council is considering narrowing Palmers Rd to one lane in four places. Public feedback on the upgrade closed last week. Narrowing Palmers Rd will make it more pedestrian-friendly. However, some on-street parking will be lost. Palmers Rd resident Nicola Smith has experienced issues with speed on the street before. Miss Smith, who is a nurse, has attended crashes on her street during the four years living there. She lives near the bend in the road as it approaches Bower Ave. •Turn to page 5 Roaring buzzing House of Hearing Rangiora 03 310 7355 Ears ringing?
