Cyclone Pam brings ideal surf conditions to Ultimate Waterman

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 13 March 2015

The first Ultimate Waterman competition kicks off this weekend - it's a multi-sport, iron-man type event for surfers who will compete in short and long-board, stand-up paddle board and Waka-ama. Competitors from Hawaii, Tahiti, the USA and here in New Zealand will compete on the beaches of Auckland before heading to wherever the surf is up on Monday - this stage the plan is to hit the Coromandel. We speak to keen surfer, and contest director, Ben Kennings.
