Hail, anyone?

New Zealand's been hammered over the last few days with water spouts, tornadoes and hail--in some cases, 10cm of hail!

Above is a shot of my cousin Helen's son, Mark, on Papamoa Beach (just south of Mount Maunganui, east coast of the North Island), surfing on a bed of hail. We grew up near here in Tauranga, and only once remember something similar as kiddies, many moons ago.

You can find more hail photos from around the country, here.

Looks like fun to me!

I liked your Watertribe post about your fitness regimen. Maybe you could share it on your blog in more detail. I'm not sure how you do side crunches with a medicine ball and I really don't know what a "bum lift" is.

Trust me you don't want to look up bum lift on the internet.
