Absent without Leave

Two Old Landies, A Coupla Old Motos, And Our Fruitful Search For NZ's Hidden Waves

Follow the ragtag Roark crew as they get lost and discover all of New Zealand's South Island. Scoring some of the best swell seen in decades, they brave the winter freeze camping out in old Defenders, chasing waves in bush planes, and having one helluva time while they're at it.
