Orca are, in my opinion, one of the most magical creatures that roam this planet. The other day I joined the Kaikoura community at the opening of their new marina exactly one year after the devastating earthquake that affected this town so much. A pod of orca showed up to join in the celebrations too. Very powerful. Massive thanks to @whalewatchkaikoura for taking me out on the water to see them. @kaikouranz #Kaikoura #Orca #KillerWhales

This morning I gathered with the community of Kaikoura at dawn to mark one year since the 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck this region. Iโ€™ve been proudly working alongside the community for the past 5 months, sharing their stories through the @kaikouranz page. This morning local Maori blessed the new day and opened the new marina - the old marina was destroyed with the uplifting of the seabed. Next month the highway north of Kaikoura, which connects with Marlborough, will reopen on the 15th. Itโ€™s a very exciting and positive time for this region moving forward. My time here has taught me many things but mainly that community is key: Kotahitanga - Acting as one, as one people. Kaikoura is open for business and ready for you all. The road south to Christchurch and the inland route are both open. Come say Kia Ora. #KaikouraNZ

Driving the @kaikouranz coastal highway has always been my favourite section of Highway1 in New Zealand. Seeing it from the air with @wingsoverwhaleskaikoura ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ even better! I was really heartbroken when it was damaged by the 7.8 earthquake a year ago tomorrow and I honestly thought I would never drive this again. But itโ€™s open to the south and the north next month connecting communities thanks to amazing men and woman from around the world! How they fixed I will never fully understand. To me itโ€™s a miracle, to them itโ€™s a job. #KaikouraNZ

Itโ€™s good to be back in Kaikoura. Hope you all had an awesome weekend? Cheers to summer. ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ–๏ธ ๐ŸŽฃ @monteithsbrewery #GoPro #Kaikoura

This morning I was extremely lucky enough to fly up and inspect the Kaikoura Highway by chopper. This massive section of highway was completely destroyed in the November 14 earthquake last year. Seeing the magnitude of this job from the air was heartbreaking but, in the helicopter with me was an engineer who is overseeing this massive project. Having him there to explain what it will take and how they will have this road open on the 15th of December was truly beautiful. Over 1600 men and woman are working around the clock to connect communityโ€™s and our country and bloody hell they will do it on time! Good on ya team. @kaikouranz is open and ready for summer! #Kaikoura

Iโ€™m super excited to announce that Iโ€™m teaming up with @fordnz later this month for a good old summer roadie around the South Island! Any suggestions of where @lisabartonnz and I should explore? So far we have no plans, weโ€™re just going to drive and see where we end up. ๐ŸŒด๐Ÿš—๐ŸŒด ๐Ÿ˜ƒ #GoPro #FordNZ

Who wants to come sea kayaking with me this summer? It will be my 14 season guiding in the park and this year Iโ€™m thinking of running 5 or 3 day photo workshops / kayak tours with my mates @abeltasmankayaks. I think itโ€™s going to be a good summer, this is how was welcomed back yesterday! ๐Ÿฌ ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿ˜Ž #AbelTasmanKayaks #GoPro #GoProQuik

I spent last week doing a photo shoot around @rotoruanz. Like most shoots we tried to plan it for sunny weather, which we kinda got, except on the last day when it rained. Rain was actually perfect for this shot because the New Zealand forest looks itโ€™s best in the rain. ๐Ÿ„@shannon.louise.nz paddling a @moananzsup on Lake Tarawera. #LakeTarawera #Rotorua #GoProKarma #MoanaSUPnz #GoPro

Stopped off at Bully Point corner on the road along side @greatlaketaupo to do some choice bombs and snapped this pic. Anyone else jumped these cliffs? #LoveTaupo.

Sunset adventures above @greatlaketaupo on Mount Tauhara with Nadia the @ginjureninja. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ This turned into a real adventure when on our way down the trail gave way sending poor Nadia head first over a small cliff into a very solid rock knocking her out. She was such a trooper sporting a tennis ball sized bump on her head as we slowly hiked out in the dark for a visit to the local hospital. #LoveTaupo #GoPro

Day 1 with @greatlaketaupo. @tongariroriverrafting took me down the mighty Tongariro River. I spent my childhood holidays flying fishing this river so it was awesome to see it face first into the whitewater. #LakeTaupo #GoProkarma #GoProQuik

I love this crazy narrow and extremely unforgiving Skippers Canyon road. @lisabartonnz and I are planning a summer roadie from our home in Motueka to the Catlins in Southland. The plan is to drive as many roads like this keeping off the main highway as much as possible. I think it can be done. Any suggestions of awesome unpaved roads we should find. โœŒ๏ธ

Last month I was lucky enough to go to spend a few days at the @hobbitontours movie set with @thehatchling, @jarradseng and @shaun_jeffers. It really is this green and those gardens and houses are very real. you have ever seen Lord Of The Rings or done this tour youโ€™ll know this spot is the grand entrance to the shire and the opening scene to the movies. On a little side note, one of my mates was actually one of the hobbit kids chasing Gandalf through here when he was a kid haha๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ Can you see Bilbos hole? #NZmustDo #hobbiton
