Boarding on New Zealand’s South Island

Are you off to the snow this season? If you are venturing to our neighbour to the East, then this new clip featuring some New Zealand’s best snowboarders will ensure you get that little boost of extra excitement. New Zealand is known for having some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, and even the raw footage in videos can do no justice when compared to seeing it all with your own eyes.

Lucky for us, this clip is probably the next best thing. Join Jake Koia, Christy Prior, Sean Thompson, Nick Brown and Nick Hyne as they take you on an adventure and a look at the world through their eyes, and what a beautiful world it is. This latest episode of the series ‘Diaries Down Under’ will have you desperate to book that last minute trip to the snow and have you ready to attack a heap of fresh powder. The crew describe why they love Queenstown and Remarkables, while showing off the area’s new high powered chairlift, terrain and another way of getting to the top of the mountain all together.

One thing is for sure, this clip highlights New Zealand’s true natural beauty and feeling of adventure. If you haven’t experienced it yourself, New Zealand’s South Island is definitely one to tick off your bucket list.

If you have now been convinced to pack up and go experience the mountains for yourself we don’t blame you. However, ensuring you have the right equipment to do this successfully like the ‘Diaries Down Under’ crew is another thing all together. Don’t go under prepared, SurfStitch has you covered with all the best Snow products available.

If you’re buzzed by riding frozen water chances are you’re perpetually saving for that next trip abroad. Australian snowboarders are known for their enterprising ways when it comes to travelling to ride, and the crew in this Northern Heights series are testament to that. Months were spent squirreling away pennies, doing whatever it took to supplement sponsorship, but once the snow started to fall it was all worth it. Come join Keith Webster, Dylan Champion, Adam Chaston, Matt Wrobel and SurfStitch’s own Hannah McKay as they shred their way all over Japan.
