@ Andrew; Hey what is this... an Aussie advertising New Zealand...?
Well done mate, the videos are awesome, great commentary - keep it up!
The country side up North here is nothing like the South I'm afraid. We do have some DS sites but no where near the size. We have some wonderful coastal slope sites up in the Waikato and a few not to bad inland either. Auckland probably has the two best DS sites, on a couple of Volcanic cones (Mt Wellington and Mt Mangere), in the Waikato you can DS the Tauwhare site in a SW or a NE. Te Kawa mountain over in Te Awamutu is also a good site and takes a SE direction - front side is awesome too, you can see to Tongariro on the central plateau on a clear day...
Although the sites are not as big scale as Christchurch, we can get to all the Waikato ones in a maximum of 1 hour drive - and that is a flying site for almost every wind direction too.
Have fun and keep up the good work on the videos... some of us are stuck behind a desk working indoors... (at least we can enjoy some of your holiday with you...!)
