This year we launched a competition called ‘My epic adventure is…’ for young, budding backpackers to win a FREE trip to New Zealand with Kiwi Experience! All you guys had to do was send us a snap summing up what your ultimate epic adventure was, we had loads of entries and it was a VERY difficult decision but the winner had to be James Ranken with this unbelievable picture…
So off he went on his epic adventure around New Zealand with Kiwi Experience. But first, I think it would be worth getting to know them both a little bit better, don’t you think?

Written by Adrian, the surfer dude of AU head office.
My surfing is like Zoolander, I don’t go left. Its not that I am against it, I just grew up on right handers. I also grew up in a wetsuit. Two things that you don’t get when you’re surfing in Bali.
There’s not too many places better suited to a surfer than Bali. Its cheap to live, its got great bars, the waves are world class and the waters warm. Its surfings heaven! Well until you fall and scrape your back on live coral heads and have to disinfect the scars by rubbing limes and their juice all of them.
