Hey Cuzi’s. Having the best time over here EN-ZED (NZ). Today we scored some pretty epic waves at Aramoana, but the local boys still called it a 4 out of 10. Sets broke 4-6 foot, hollow, in front of a scenic giant cliff – yes, I frothed. The friendly local surf community (totally 5 or 6) took the day off work to enjoy decent waves in the sun. But I’m told there are waves most days and they don’t get much done around here.
Today I shot in the water for a few hours. Ok, she’s real cold, but with amazing wetsuits available today it doesn’t really hinder your performance too much. For example I wore a 5mm/3mm O’Neill Psycho + hoodies + booties + gloves and was toasty. The cold water keeps the line up empty…that’s for sure.
Sadly this is the last Aquabumps update from New Zealand. This amazing En-Zed trip was made possible with the help of so many good folk. In particular the girls at Tourism NZ (Louise Bernauer), Air New Zealand, Destination Queenstown and Destination Dunedin, Derek Morrison, Maz Quinn, Josh Jenkins, Giselle Regan, Chopper pilots, Heli Ski guides, Surf guides…cheers Bros!
