Wish You Were Here: Soft Nights by the Sea with Raw Paua
by Owen James Burke
Scuttlefish writer Owen James Burke is currently rambling around New Zealand, living in a house truck with a camera, surfboard and speargun in search of stories, waves and fish. We’re putting together a waterperson’s guide to the island nation, but meanwhile, we’ll be publishing stories and photographs, short updates along the way from the Yankee in Kiwiland. -CD

With a long lull in our otherwise relentless wintertime swells and a vicious case of hay fever, Raw Paua and I have taken a few days off from our seaward adventures.

It’s back on the road for us now, time to meet the southeast swell that’s skirting up the east coast. . . . –OJB
