We crossed the Tasman with nothing but a new steamer, some worn party boots and a dadcam with the battery power of a second hand iPod. We embarked on a trip of trips to to attend The West End Wiggle surfing festival in Ohope, NZ. What a lovely time we had.
There is something about longboard surfing festivals that makes you realise although all attendees have travelled far and wide for the contest, finishing results are the last thing anyone really worries about. Longboard festivals are now and always should be a well organised excuse to hang with friends, drink beers and free surf alongside like minded individuals. After a lovely weekend with friends old and new, we slapped together our wrap video of the events as we witnessed it. Enjoy:
