Verde's Matt Priest and Lima Eltham along with good friend and filmer Andrew 'Inch' Thomson had this epic New Zealand trip in the works for over a year but because of injuries they had to hold off, but damn was it worth the wait! Put your feet up, enjoy the next 15 minutes of some of the wildest scenery and perfect trails/parks on the planet, then go plan your own adventure.
"This trip had been talked about for a while, injuries had stopped it the year before but timing this year worked out perfectly. Martyn Tambling hit myself (Lima) and Priest up just before Christmas asking about out future plans. It just so happened he would be in Queenstown the same time we were in New Zealand. This worked perfectly for us and we actually had some sort of very rough schedule. Inch, Priest and myself flew into Auckland and were greeted by Craig Stevens, him and George Bolter who drew spots on our pull out map. The plan was to drive to Queenstown and back again, navigating the spots and scenery on the way down and back up. It honestly worked pretty perfectly, well except I broke my elbow in Queenstown, and Inch lost his wallet and passport at every opportunity, but pretty much perfect." — Lima
