logger heads

Logger Heads, aptly named after a Traditional Log Event held at Mangawhai Heads every year, saw it’s fourth installment over Waitangi Weekend 2017. After a week of waves the East Coast went slightly dormant, but produced enough of a canvas for some of the countries best Loggers to show thier wares. All photos courtesy CPL

Queen Lady Slider Nicky Wellington claimed a well deserving maiden victory in the Womens.
