TE HIKOI MAHANGA – Sunday October 26 at 4.30 PM
Series premiere! The dynamic duo of identical twins Te Kauhoe and Whare Wano are back for another surfing series – checking out the hotspots around Aotearoa and Australia. The boys score some classic waves as well as having many other adventures including: car racing in Kaikohe, collecting kaimoana with Shane Jones MP, paddling a waka taua in Paihia and sand surfing in the Hokianga. The twins also introduce some up-for-it celebrities to surfing. Among them are Outrageous Fortune actor Tammy Davis as he tackles the wild waves at Piha, and Tiki Taane, who works out that he’s not just on the show to sing. Katie Wolfe and Tim Balme also end up with more than they bargained for. In this episode: In the far north, surfing mayor Wayne Brown puts the boys through their paces.
