Surfers Bay

New Brighton

Canterbury

Reece, 10

As I walk across the steaming sand with a huge surfboard across my back, I can see the salt water in the bright sun then, the waves turning foamy. I gaze at the surfers and paddleboarders doing their amazing tricks. The sea salt fills the air along with the bitter sweetness, and the hot food making my mouth water. The warm breeze hits my face making me go for a surf in the freezing water. The bitter air on my lips making me drink the fresh spring water then the sour lollies, as I bite into them it makes me do a scrunched up face. Surfers Bay. My special place.
