New Zealand Surfing Magazine 154 Oct/Nov
The latest NZ Surf Mag instalment has hit the shelves and is packed with 'Green Room' goodness featuring kiwi surfers both home and abroad.
On the cover we feature Tairua's Sean Peggs whom after a stellar junior career has moved into the senior ranks in the same form, winning the Rip Curl Raglan Pro and along the way a wildcard into the Rip Curl Padang Cup in Indonesia, where Sean spent two months over winter, taking a trip with NZ Surf Mag across the islands by road to score the cover with epic surfing.. A big congrats to 'Peggsy' on his maiden cover!
Features this issue are:
The Day- Gisborne's Wainui Beach comes to life with a once in every ten years massive session which is ridden by Blair Stewart and Adam Grimson while the entire towns working population skips work for the day to watch in admiration.
Ghetto Blasters- We had on out of the original Indo ghetto of Kuta across Lombok and Sumbawa with Elliot Paerata-Reid, Dune Kennings, Sean Peggs, and Nick Ngau Chun experiencing the sights and culture of these diverse islands, score a few sessions at an unsuspecting beach break and end up at an old favourite of Lakey Peak.
Primo Roady 80: We meet up with a few industry reps who are the true ROAD WARRIORS of travel. When you drive the length of the country for a living, the times you get to head out on an original surf roady are that much sweeter. Featuring Sam Willis, Troy Riley, Scott Bell, Todd Robinson and Dion Ahern.
One Man, One Wave, and a Few Friends: Across the world there are those locals that dedicate their lives to one break, who live for the day of days, through the atrocious to average, sitting and waiting, doing their time waiting for that day where their knowledge and experience will come to the fore and see them surf the place with more intimacy than any others. Former National Champ Damon Gunness is our 'one man', and we feature his 'one wave', and also a few friends.
Mental Sequences- featuring Maz Quinns patented backhand vert, Dune Kennings keeping up with superstars Dusty Payne and Ezekiel Lau and Billy Stairmands rotation during his stay in England where he won a series of contests and shares his experiences with us.
and the WORD from Paige Hareb on World Tour requalification, Jamie Andrews on life in the surf industry, and Mackenzie Christie as Rising grom.
