New Zealand Surfing - - Trigger Finger -

Maz Quinn would have to be hands down the most bar­relled man in NZ. Not only can he ride the tube damn well when they do present them­selves, but he makes it his num­ber one pri­or­ity to track and chase th­ese days. The 2013 win­ter has been one to re­mem­ber for NZ surfers and if you were pre­pared to put in the k’s as Maz did then there were a shit load of tubes on of­fer. This wave pic­tured here at a Bay Of Plenty spot that loves to gift bar­rels is the best wave Maz has caught here and that’s a quote straight from the horse’s mouth. The day be­fore this Maz rode around 40 tubes up the Coro and af­ter this ses­sion pic­tured where he was spat out of around 20, he went back up the Coro for the arvo and slot­ted into a quick 10. He then drove through the night to a slab­bing reef down near his home town and nav­i­gated a heap of tun­nels, be­fore head­ing down to the bot­tom of the South Is­land. This process was re­peated over and over for the next five weeks and still hasn’t stopped. Now that’s some tube time to make any surfer jeal­ous!
