I had to go to beautiful Auckland for the day last week and following my own advice I tried to log on the ebay.co.nz before my trip to see what unique NZ surfcraft would be waiting for be there.
I was shocked to discover there is no such thing, instead they use a site called trademe.co.nz
Treademe claim to have 1 million members which is pretty impressive considering there is only 3 million people in New Zealand.
Sure enough I found this little beauty up for auction, made in Auckland and in fantastic condition, ending on the day of my arrival.
Sadly a heavy night of drinking and dancing on the bar in a Cowboy bar led to completely disabling hangover that left me unable to summon the energy to find 'New Market' and barley able to make it back to the airport, so the board was left behind in its natural habitat.
