Catlins- that's a far place in the middle of nowhere. No Wifi, rare petrol stations, rare groceries. It was a challenge being on my own and relying on people's help.

I was told to go to Nick to do a surf lesson. It was the best thing I have done so far in New Zealand. I learned how to stand on the board being surrounded by hector doplinhs at the same time. Unique experience!

So, that's how surfing works:

-Lie on your board with your face showing towards the marked area

-Start paddling when you see the right wave approaching you

-Stand up with your hands behind your shoulder. When you are right handed, stand up with your left foot in the front

Then I met Jim who offered me his couch for the night. Thank you Jim for this gorgeous sleeping place. It's much better than the cold, short car!
