These Waters, Part One: A Film By Jono Smit

A classic film that follows the unscripted adventures of Jono Smit as he explores our southern coastline during the winter of 2015.

“The idea behind all of this was to document winter through my eyes,” explains Jono Smit. “The road trips, the cold weather, the people.”

“There are no pro surfers in this clip, just the frothiest South Islanders you’ll ever meet,” he laughs. “To put it lightly it has been an experience and a half shooting this film. I’ve met so many people, drunk a whole lot of coffee, clocked up a heap of kilometers and experienced a whole lot of New Zealand.”

He said Part One was just the beginning.

“Thanks to everyone along the way, for your hospitality, patience and generosity.
