Surf To Summit Trailer: the crew surf and ski NZ in 5 days!
Over five action-packed days in September, Alex Herbert (Kingswood Skis), pro skier Tom Dunbar, pro snowboarder Maria Kuzma, and skier and surfer Angus Kebbell drove, choppered, ferried, flew, surfed and skied the length of the country from Cape Reinga on Day One (September 14) to Bluff on Day Five (by midnight September 18). The mega-storm that rocked New Zealand that week made for last-minute itinerary changes and a dramatic final surf on a snow-covered Southland beach.
Seventhwave made sure the team stayed warm with their very own MAX custom-fit steamers, which also came in handy when the team caravan got stuck in deep mud!
The Surf to Summit crew were joined by special guests Paige Hareb (ASP Surf Tour), Jossi Wells (free skiing world champ), Maz Quinn (WTC), Geoff Small (national big mountain champ, Ruapehu extreme champ), Sam Smoothy (national freeride champ), Sam Hawke (big wave legend), and a few of our very own Seventhwave riders.
Look out for the TV show, airing on C4 in February and playing on Air New Zealand inflight. In the meantime, here's the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/user/SeventhwaveWetsuits?feature=mhum#p/f/5/oS_IveGSN2E
