Good video.  Wharariki beach looks way bigger than the beach at Titirangi - need to join you some time and do both!!

My son and I just put a GOPRO camera mount on our Zenith today (don't have the camera yet!), looking forward to shooting some video this summer. I will definitely post flying into Copalis!

Hi John, the motor is Jabiru 2200 80hp. 

Hi Charles, would love to see pictures or video of Copalis when you get there.
