Last month I did a ten day tour of the North Island with all my favourite people… surfing, sailing, and summiting mountains.
I didn’t keep anything in the way of a diary because I was too busy being a tour guide by day and being merry by night. But I did take one million photos, so this blog rounds up my top 25 of the trip, in chronological order.
