Riding On

Maz Quinn proves he’s no grommet as New Zealand’s first representative on surfing’s elite World Championship Tour and sets the pace during the opening round on Australia’s Gold Coast. “I’m stoked to get through, I’m flying the (New Zealand) flag very high, that’s for sure (laughs). I’ll just take the confidence into the next heat now.” Maz’s aim for the tour is to, “put New Zealand on the map for surfing.”
