Dunedin surf breaks are to feature in the latest video of New
Zealand's best surfers and their favourite locations, which
will be available to millions through the internet.
Maz Quinn, Bobby Hansen, Matt Scorringe and Luke Cederman
spent a week surfing Dunedin's coastline recently for a film

month and available free to view on the internet, Mr Meade
He made the film to show the calibre of New Zealand surfing,
and said it would work to promote the country as a surfing
"Dunedin, on the whole, is really, really good for surfing.
It has some of the best surf in the whole country.
"Dunedin's coastline is a big area with lots of different
beaches facing in different directions and it is definitely
one of the best places for wave quality in New Zealand," Mr
The group experienced good swells and weather while in Otago,
where they also spent five days surfing and filming around
The water was a lot colder than the North Island surfers were
used to, but beaches were typically less crowded.
His film would include footage of top New Zealand surfers at
locations from the far north to the deep south.
"I wanted to showcase the level of surfing in this country.
We have some internationally ranked surfers and the idea is
to get the message out there for the world to see," Mr Meade
