3 Swedish friends Vanlife New Zealand
Three Swedish Friends In New Zealand, South Island
Me and my friends Fredrik and Cristian were driving coast to coast for 2 months in New Zealand.
We ended up driving over 800 km.
In the beginning of February we went ashore on the south island of New Zealand .
We spent around 2 weeks there looking for waves and adventures. We started off driving down south on the west coast. Our target was Queenstwon and surf along the coast before we got there. Queenstown is an epic place for party and bullshit, and adventure. There are things to do for weeks if you want to.
When we where satisfied with Q-town we made a quickie in Millford Sounds ( the beautiful fjords) Then heading over to the east coast.
We did not have to much planned for the east. Just stop wherever we felt like and where we saw potential in good waves.... Got Hickory bay (picture when Cristian is pointing) to our self and found some other hidden gems with clean empty lineups.
You can say that we were really lucky, we scored a lot of good waves on the east going north. Got to see one of NZ`s best right handers go off- Mangamaunu, Kaikoura. Ended up staying there for 3 days before it dropped off.
South island of New Zealand is one of the most beautiful places we ever been to.
Nice people,good waves, charming roads, magical landscape and epic sunsets.
