Waka brought divine gifts to the Maori First Nation. For this reason the waka inspire kotahitanga (unity) even today. My mind wonders that if Hawaii, Rapanui and Aotearoa were all reacahed by Waka what would have prevented them from reaching the Americas?
If you've got a decent surfing beach on your holiday, take a lesson. You may not look like this guy but at least you can say you've done this. Shout out to Raglan New Zealand from the world travels section of my pinterest.
raglan new zealand -famous surfing town on the west coast of the North Island. Jason and I stayed in a B&B on the hill pictured in this shot. The waves were rolling in set after set just like this when we were there.
