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.
