A journey to the most remote coast in South Island, New Zealand.
On this hidden coastline lie perfect points, beachbreaks, and rocky, A-frame peaks. A scenic flight or a five-day hike will get you there, but you won't be able to unlock the secrets of the coastline unless you have someone to guide you. It's a steady six-hour uphill climb to reach the main divide of the Southern Alps by foot. Steep peaks and forest-lined cliffs frame each side of the valley for which this area is famous. At the summit, the view west spans over 8,000 square miles of protected alpine lands that make up New Zealand's Fiordland National Park.
Featuring Ricardo Christie, Peter Devries, Noah Cohen, and Nico Manos.
