I'm currently in the USA but might be taking a job working at the geothermal power plants in Taupo/Wairakei. Are there any riders around the Lake? Decent place to live otherwise, city, nightlife, cost of living, girls etc.? I currently have an '04 SXR and an '02 Ultra 150 (bitch ski). Mostly been doing flat water "freestyle" riding if you can call subs and nosestabs that with the occasional surf ride. I'll probably sell my skis before leaving and pick something up in NZ, probably an SJ or aftermarket hull. How hard is it to find a decent pole ski for sale?
