Filmed over the past winter in surf spots all over New Zealand. The idea behind all of this was to document winter through my eyes, the road trips, the cold weather, the people. No pro surfers in this clip, just the frothiest south islanders you'll ever meet. To put it lightly it's been an experience and a half shooting this film. I've met so many people, drunk a whole lot of coffee, clocked up a heap of kilometers and experienced a whole lot of New Zealand. Part one is the just the beginning. Thanks to everyone along the way, your hospitality, patience and generosity.
Here's to next winter.
