Down the road from Raglan.
I ordered an amazing hand made bread pot (for storing bread) from Germany (from Bavaria, home of all good bread). Barbara Ehrengruber makes amazing stuff. I found her site online and ordered a pot. It took 10 weeks or so to make and will take a few weeks to get to NZ. Can’t wait!
This week I got a new surfboard. I had ordered it months ago to be made an delivered to NYC. But since we up and left NYC due to the virus I had to get it shipped to NZ…. it is a pretty special board. A high volume longboard custom made from an extra volume blank. Made by the very famous Robert August surfboard shaping company. Classic 60s styles. Absolutely beautiful board.
Robert August is one of the main chaps in the super famous 1965 Endless Summer surf movie. As it happens, in that movie Robert August and Mike Hynson travel the world surfing and they actually visit the beach (Shippies) where the photos below were taken 🙂 My fav surf spot! Its about 1.5 hrs from my house in NZ.
