Water Skiing, Lake Wanaka Style // Shortest Day – June 22

Whilst having a coffee at one of my local haunts, a friends old man (Garry Tweedie) let me in on a cracker of a story – For the past 11 years or so, himself and his friends go out water skiing on the shortest day of the year – June 22. Garry suggested that I should come and film it – the result being the above video. It was very refreshing to shoot, and a true visual slice of the kiwi lifestyle and attitude. Mulled wine, rum in hip flasks, braziers, sausages on the beach, and water skiing under the snow capped mountains – very unique! Big props to Andy Bamford on the colour grade, sound mix and titles which pulled it all together nicely. My friends over at Stuff also featured this in national news – http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/7165830/Wanaka-waterskiers-winter-dip
