OXS does northland ….. Again

As a carry on from last weekend myself, Ben Hubbard and Kate Rattrie loaded up the ute with Paihia the destination. Once we arrived there we picked up Powell and Whitney and made our way to a good friends house in Waipapa. We crashed there for the night and with slightly tired heads and bodies we were once again on the road, this time Tauranga bay for a hopeful early morning wave skim.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We were greeted with below average conditions but Powell and Sam managed a quick sesh and were soon on our way north, all the way north to Cape Reinga.

 

We spent a couple of tiring hours on the giant Te paki dunes then it was finally time to throw down some flatland. We wound up at the always beautiful Rarawa beach and were greeted by a heap of local kids. Stickers were stuck, stoke was shared and they even got a free board! As for ourselves we wound down with a camp fire and great food (sausage, baked beans and tuatuas) and some beers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Sunday involved the long 4 hour drive home and another Sunday afternoon chill out on Omaha beach. Powell and Whitney have now left our company and are travelling the country until mid December (we are hoping they will be back up our war from early December to enjoy the start of Summer). If anyone would like to meet up with some really cool people and hopefully have a skim sesh or two with one of Canadas longer standing flatlanders then flick me an email info@oxsskimboards.com and I will put you in touch.
