Want to know how a coastal family fare on the snow? Raglan-based family, the Kereopas, left their beach life to try skiing and snowboarding for the first time. Staying in Turangi, they headed up to Whakapapa Ski Field, Mount Ruapehu, for their first ski and snowboard lessons which they totally aced. Unfortunately the weather was not very good at the mountains the next day so they went up to Taupo to play some mini-golf.
What happens when world famous surfer Daniel Kereopa swaps coastal life for the fresh water of Great Lake Taupo?
Raglan-based international surfer Daniel Kereopa and his family (partner Renee, 10 yr old daughter Nia and 12 yr old son Cabe) let us follow them on their first-ever holiday to a non-salt water destination. Watch them as they journey through the Great Lake Taupo region creating memories (paddle boarding, mountain biking, fishing, jet boating, sky diving, wake boarding and more) in what we like to call "Nature's Ultimate Playground".
The Kereopa's were chosen for their laidback Kiwi attitudes, their willingness to leave behind their coastal environment in which they feel so at home and throw themselves in the (freshwater) deep-end at a place which is completely new to them. They're also just an incredibly likeable family! What are you waiting for? Meet DK and his whanau!
