The Quik trip down to new zealand was … quick. Our Team Manager Brian Craighill, J.P. Tomich, Joe Carlino and myself went down to snap a couple of on snow pics in the 07/08 outerwear with photographer to the stars, Kevin Zacher. Craighill’s good at getting work done without making snowboarding feel like a desk job, and low pressure always equals good times. I was amazed at the wide range of quality restaurants in the small town of Wanaka where we stayed. Triple stacked pancakes and lattes—that’s the way to start the day off right down there. We ate like kings. The Snow wasn’t all time, but the trip was. J.P. and I ended up snowboarding everyday, Craighill got some photos and Carlino made a cool little video that you can watch by clicking right here.—Bryan Fox.
