    Golf Link

    Rawhiti...the place of the rising Sun. a real Golf Link, with easterlies from the Sea, the constant Breeze...you have to be on your toes. But it's fun and keeps you honest.
    once a great Golfer decribed the Golf, quote:a game you yell fore....shot six and write down five!

    on a sunny 'calm' morning

    Rawhiti Golf Link

    Golfers have packed their bags an other carefree morning. the Links Golf is a little tricky though. the Ball soaked with wet, salty air...the flight more unpredictable and there is the wind, on each hole from an other direction

    Slingshot

    by Kate-Me Written May 28, 2004
    up they go!

    This sport is located actually off to the side of New Brighton's mall, just across the road from the waterfront.
    I think it's called The Slingshot (it certainly operates just like one, with the caged humans as the catapault stone, being launched into the air at about 200 km hr, if I remember the speed correctly...or maybe it was 180 km hr...anyway, some ridiculous speed. We watched two girls do it and survive just fine, didn't even throw up, which I thought was pretty amazing considering the launch. And then once you've reached the end, the rubber or whatever it is just bumps you up and down, a lot slower, until you come back to rest on earth.

    Equipment: No gear needed. There are some weight restrictions I think. And no doubt some health warnings..

    Spring is in the air and so are the spring storms..blastering Nor'wester today, we had to be careful and watch the ball, wrong tee off and the ball would come back ...like a boomerang....

    some water under the bridge

    surfing, swimming and generally having a good time at the beach. Dogowners are resticted where to walk their pooch..but the dunes and lesser frequented parts are just fine to let them run
