Piha Beach, where buses roll up and belch out entire classes of beautiful dark-eyed Maori kids on surfing field trips...

First they shimmy into wet suits that turn them into odd seal children, then they lie on their tummies, paddling their boards up and down the eel infested tributary river, before graduating to the ocean. There the instructors will spend a good chunk of time keeping the boys from splashing the girls and yelling at the headstrong adventurous types to be careful of the rip current. How much better is that than a trip to another stuffy ol’ museum!? Lucky kiddos!

Craig, Christine, David Wade, Paul and 3 others said thanks.
