hey shadow_matrix,

jarvis walker do some reasonable entry level gear, I caught a 5 1/2 foot seven gill shark a couple of years back off birdlings flat using a jarvis walker surf set that cost me less than $80.

If you are looking to pick up stuff on the cheap make regular visits to rebel sport on colombo street, they often have gear marked down by 50% or more and you can get some real bargains.

The pier at new brighton can also be quite productive but is often pretty crowded.

For information on some other spots try to get hold of the spot-x surfcasting map for canterbury from one of the tackle stores in town, they cost about $13 but provide information on spots to try including best time, wind,
