Monday 25th Feb - Day 34 to Friday 29th Feb - Day 38

On a 5 Day surfing tour of northland (the area north of Auckland) with New Zealand surf tours. The surf was really good at ninety mile beach which was the best break so we didn't end up doing much touring but lots of surfing, about 3 hours in the morning and 3 in the afternoon. A really chilled out week and finally the tan kicked in, after 4 weeks in the Andes I was feeling pretty white!

On Friday I went to see a reggae concert by Katchafire, who apparently are quite big in NZ although i'd never heard of them, at Auckland zoo with Rangi and the other surf coaches and ended up at the bosses house party. A really good night out!

hoping to add more later......
