Beach Hop in Whangamata. It was a crazy couple of weeks leading up to the event, with many late nights, but it all came together in time. The weather at the Hop was shit unfortunately, and watching the car fill with water in the rain was a bit rough. But the main parade was mostly clear and the car was a big hit. Rolling through the crowds with open headers and revving the shit outa the engine, as all the kids yell for you to do, sure was good fun.
Beach Hop is always a great time, even with crap weather. So many BBQs, beers, rad cars, and 5 days of cruising a little beach town in the beautiful Coromandel peninsula.
