Rarotonga Adventure

I recently spent a week in Rarotonga with some of my best friends, to do a show and also celebrate my friend, Vince Harder’s, bucks week.

Having never been to Raro before, I had no idea what to expect at all.  Little did I know this trip would go down as one of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had.

Huge thanks to all our sponsors for making it happen and for taking such good care of us.  Here’s some pics and a highlight video below, courtesy of Varo Media…

Our Rarotonga arrival had us greeted by some beautiful local people & cruising across the island aboard this party bus. You just knew the week ahead was about to be unforgettable.

Everything about the food, set-up & ambience epitomised "on point", but beyond that us boys had the best time celebrating with our brother.
