And in true Surfing the Menu style, Mark and Ben also hit the road to find the perfect wave, only to discover exhilarating adventures such as gliding over the snow-covered alps, heli-surfing to the world’s most isolated break, landing on a volcanic lake in a restored 1954 Seaplane and scuba dive in a cage surrounded by sharks & all the while chatting with local kiwis whose passions for growing fresh produce has made New Zealand’s gastronomic reputation world class.
