Just coming back from the movie at the Lake Wanaka Centre. I don’t think I have words for it … or maybe yes, I have one: “WOW!” It’s that a word? No idea, but, pfff! that was awesome. The worst thing is don’t know for how we’ll have to wait to see that movie again. The good thing is that … I won a snowboard!!! It’s a Lib Tech Travis Rice 157, the same one that’s is on the gnarliest tricks on the movie, brand new and signed by Travis!. So stoked on that, I couldn’t believe it.
And here we are, in Wanaka for the world movie premiere of “That’s It, That’s All“. Before the movie, I went to the photo exhibitiion by Tim Zimmerman at “The Good Room“, simply impressive. Just because I have to keep in mind that I’m a backpacker I did not buy my favourite photo. Maybe later.
In the pics, Travis Rice, the man in front on the lens, and Tim Zimmerman, the man behind the lens, well, not this time and an overview of the exhibition.
A few steps from the chairlift and … here we are, at the Cardrona “Backcountry”. Some “not that” fresh snow, a few rocks and let’s shoot with Joram Makuru and Nick “Pooch” Poohachoff.
Finally, there’s something to ride. It’s not that much and the visibility is even less, but … it’s what we got. We went with Joram Makuru, Nick “Pooch” Poohachoff and Joanie Anderson to hit the Cardrona chutes and … ohh! first turn and you can see the grass under the snow … beautiful.
First comp series of the season over here in New Zealand, the Mountain Dew Night Sessions. Park crew at Snow Park set up this new feature for the girls and guys to shred. Gnarly!!!
First day of the season over here in New Zealand, I went to Cardrona and the weather was crap, but I met Joram Makuru, just after some nails on that wall ride destroyed his board.
