DoNZ Dispatch: ThirtyTwo in New Zealand

ThirtyTwo just wrapped an epic trip to New Zealand. Ten days of skating, eating, drinking and playing soccer. Oh yeah and we snowboarded a little bit. We started in Auckland and then flew down to Wanaka and rode Snowpark and Cardrona but while we were there a 50-year storm dumped on both islands and essentially shut the whole country down. At first it didn't seem like a big deal when we strolled the streets of Queenstown in 8 inches of snow, as we have all been in that type of weather before, but when we started to understand just how rare an occasion it really was for snow to blanket the low elevation so thoroughly we decided to improvise. Surprisingly the resorts shut down because of too much snow but we ended up sessioning the local skatepark with some Queenstown locals while the city tried to sort itself out. We also snuck in skate sessions at lots of the local parks on both islands and got a good after hour session in at the indoor resort Snowplanet. Our NZ connect Ryan hooked us up real good and was super patient with our Stienlager fueled crew of indecisiveness. As well the New Zealand locals are always extremely hospitable and were quick to oblige us with all request and helped us to deplete the countryside of lamb shanks and sadats. Maximum Respect.
