The Land Of The Long White Lines
14 . 02 . 16
Over Christmas and the New Year James and Liz finally headed off on their slightly belated honeymoon, trading the wind and rain of the northern hemisphere’s winter for the warmth and sunshine of New Zealand, the “land of the long white cloud”, for a few weeks. Despite it being their honeymoon and not a surf trip, James packed a surfboard and wetsuit anyway claiming it too good an opportunity to miss even if he only managed to get in the sea once or twice. After a few e-mails back and forth with New Zealand’s notoriously strict customs authorities about whether or not bringing a wooden surfboard into the country would break their strict rules on importing biological matter, he was given the all clear and packed his boardbag.
