After living in Canada for most of the northern hemisphere winter , we decided to spend some time in the Coromandel before coming down to Wanaka to settle into Winter .
The Coromandel is definitely 1 of my favorite places in N.Z to hang out , its so beautiful an is a nice place to unwind after being away, Abbys family is also from there so its great catching up with them all aswell .
The winter in Wanaka this year has been fun , not a ton of regular snow falls , but still good times as usual .
Ive just decide to throw a bunch of images on here from the last while as it probably sums up best how the last few months have been
A few highlights also were :
- Travelling to Milford sound an camping, such a beautiful place with an amazing feel .
- Competiting in the World Heli Challenge again an winning the overall Xfactor award an a free heli trip in Alaska .
- Shooting up in Ohau , I forget how beautiful that place is an the rad terrain is .
- Hanging an filming with Antti Autti for his new movie "Relate " , hes been a blast to shred with an get to know .
