We haven't had much in the way of communication for days now. No phone, net, etc. Camped out in the traditional Maori grounds up north. The waves were probably better than what the photos show. Will send a full update when I'm sober and have time. Just got back to Mike's in Whangarei and have a computer to use.
Currently drinking pirate beer and getting prepped for the early tomorrow. Will send photos when we're done, hopefully some swell tomorrow.
Also have pics of Tatum getting some great slides at Sandy Bay on our way up north. I sat on the beach and shot pics of her. She also got a few at Shippies too. Really impressed that she went out in building swell with 8-wave sets at head high or so!
Be back in touch soon...
