…and this is our car.
Tim is a (wonderful!) surfing teacher at Hot Water Beach. When the waves there get too big, he will drive his van to some more sheltered beach to give lessons–for example, Buffalo Beach in Whitianga, not far from the ferry.
He carries a pile of supplies around in this van, doling out wetsuits of various sizes and well-loved surfboards to his young students. Now I have to stop writing this entry, but enjoy your own mental images as I do mine!
