The Newcastle boys blazing down the hill

Heli Ski

Today’s ‘Bumps comes from the mountain tops near Wanaka, New Zealand. What an insanely beautiful joint. I was fortunate enough to spend the day out the back, Heli Skiing. Basically a chopper flings you up a mountain and you work your way down. In my case, sometimes rolling down. It’s true…my ocean skills don’t translate to snow! I have a new found empathy for the surfing beginners at Bondi. Needless to say, it’s a unique experience worthy of those bucket lists.

Today the conditions were very good. Fresh powder everywhere. I never seen snow like it.

A huge thanks to Harris Mountains Heli Ski, 30 year old pioneers operating in South Island of NZ. Pretty amazing day for under a grand Aussie. If you’re coming over – do it. Trust me.

I know you all read Aquabumps for a daily beach fix…I get it. But the snow ain’t a bad alternative for a few days. I heard yesterday Sydney had some decent swell too…which has now dissipated. Hope you scored.
