This week the Chronicle caught up with Ziggy Knuiman who is currently enrolled in the Raglan Area School Surfing Academy. What made you want to join the Surf Academy at Raglan Area School? Because I get to surf every day and enjoy the Raglan lifestyle. What do you like about it? It is a lot of fun, I have awesome teachers and friends, really chilled out and surfing all the time. Apart from surfing what do you like to do? Skating, hanging with my friends and going on adventures. Who do you look up to? John John Florence and Kelly Slater are pretty cool and seem like they have life sorted. What’s the benefit of living in Raglan? Having a big group of cool mates who all get along, everybody knows each other. The older locals are really nice, the surf obviously and its really chilled out. How could Raglan be improved? I think Raglan is sweet as how it is at the moment, it's a good size and not ruined by humans yet so yeah its good.

Best thing about social media? I don't really like social media, it wastes too much time, but keeping in contact with your mates is probably the best part. Worst thing about social media? The amount of time that you spend on it for sure, people getting bullied is bad too. What is the biggest issue facing the world right now? I’m not sure but I’d say pollution is up there and laziness. The country you would most like to visit? Tahiti or Hawaii. If you were stuck in an elevator for 24 hours with one person – who would you like that person to be? Probably a really quiet person so I could just sleep. Best book you’ve ever read? Life of Pi is pretty good. You have the exact same meal for the next 12 months. What’s your pick? Raglan Sushi. In 10 years I see myself…… http://ww Hopefully finished uni with a good job living by a beach with a hot girlfriend.

Local kickboxing champ retires



As the World Kickboxing Association’s New Zealand light heavyweight kickboxing champion, Jonathan had his last fight over the weekend at a Knees of Fury event in Hamilton. The 37-year-old won the fight after his Tahitian opponent had received several hits to the back of his head by the third round and officials decided to disqualify him. “Unfortunately it’s not the way I wanted to go out, but a win’s a win,” says Jonathan, who is also known as Johnny. After 25 years of martial arts and 20 years of competitive fighting, Johnny felt it was time to retire from kickboxing and karate, the latter of which also gave him two New Zealand titles. Although still at the top of his game, most of his opponents were in their mid to late 20s and age eventually became a factor for him. Lots of competitors could keep going too long, he says. But he wanted to quit while he could still enjoy life and have a body that’s “still functioning”. Johnny is lucky to have never sustained

any major injuries or a knockout from his fights, just minor injuries such as broken fingers and ribs. But the competition demanded a heavy training schedule, with five or six times a week, twice a day at the gym: “So rest is the number one priority for now,” he says. Johnny plans to keep going to the gym and to train others however. “Definitely the competitive side is the icing on the cake [but] for me, martial arts is more of a lifestyle,” he explains. His teaching work at Raglan Area School, where he runs Te Mana o te

P: 07 870 1005 E: A: 25 Roche Street, Te Awamutu

Rangatahi alternative education unit for Year 9 and 10 boys, is important to him and he uses many of the skills there that he developed as a martial artist. “I try to explain [to the boys] about discipline, respect and the responsibility that goes with being a martial artist and a fighter, because it’s important.” All these skills, along with perseverance and trust, are things that Johnny has gained through his karate and kickboxing and will continue to be useful to him throughout his life.

Businesses on the move in the CBD he Raglan retail scene is changing, T with businesses on the move and new shops popping up in town.

Raglan Video has moved to Electric Avenue, behind Zinnia, to make room for a new Rip Curl store in its former Bow Street premises, while Whaingaroa Organic Kai (WOK) has opened a new shop next door to the video shop. The new Rip Curl store in Raglan is a joint venture between the Raglan Surf Emporium and Rip Curl, which emporium owner John Clapham (JC) says is one of the top three surfing brands internationally. “Rip Curl’s strategy is to have concept stores in the best, most iconic surfing spots in the world – Raglan being in the top 10 in anyone’s book,” JC says. Opening over Labour Weekend, it will be the sixth Rip Curl store in New Zealand. Between the Rip Curl shop and the Raglan Surf Emporium in Volcom Lane is the container “pop up” shop, which last

year housed the Californian surf brand RVCA. This year Element will be selling its apparel from the container. This will create a mini retail “surfing hub”. JC says the idea is to learn from mistakes made in Australian surf town Byron Bay, and take a more planned approach to retail development. Jon Berczely, owner of WOK with his partner Roz, has a retail vision that is inspired by the permaculture principles of “earth care, people care, fair share”. Moving into the CBD after operating the business for eight years from their Raglan home was a considered decision, but he believes the time and place are right for it to work. They have fresh produce, bulk bins and dry goods at the shop – about 99 percent of it organic - and put together seasonal fruit and vegetable bags for customers each week. Jon says there is an emphasis on local at WOK – employing local staff and stocking

locally produced food such as coconut yoghurt, granola, fresh produce, sourdough and sugar-free raw treats. “It’s all about local – the more we interact with each other, the better our lives will be.” They are also open to new ideas and any other local products made in a commercial kitchen, he adds. Next door, Raglan Video owner Alan Lovegrove has settled into his new premises after 15 years on Bow Street. He says he has fit in all the stock from the last shop, and it is business as usual with his customers “finding there way here”. Although the business of renting DVDs has dropped off a little bit over the past five years with advances in technology, the demand is still there for the shop. “The people of Raglan have been looking after us and we’ll do our best to keep looking after them,” Alan says.

he opening last weekend of Raglan Museum’s newest exhibition, ‘Te Horea - The Bird Family Collection’, was a “quite nostalgic” occasion for Te Akau resident Beverly Hooper and her siblings. “Mum and Dad would’ve had a sense of pride,” Bev said of the launch, which attracted well over 100 members of the community – a turnout befitting the unveiling of an exhibition which showcases one of the country’s largest collections of Maori artefacts by a single family from a small, localised area. It fell to Bev, as the oldest of Keith and Jocelyn Bird’s seven children, to declare the exhibition open but all her siblings bar one in Australia were there with their respective families from the Waikato and Coromandel. The Bird siblings grew up across the harbour at Horea, on a1000-acre block their late parents farmed from the mid-1940s. The 2000-odd Maori artefacts or taonga found there by the family over the decades are now housed in the museum on long-

term loan, and have been described by archaeologist Neville Ritchie from the Conservation Department as a collection of national significance providing a special insight into Maori activity in that area in the past. “We all recognise pieces we found,” Bev’s oldest brother Kit, the last of the family to farm at Horea, told the Chronicle of the display. Kit farmed the property until the late 90s, when he moved to a new farm up Te Hutewai Road, but is now retired and living in Paeroa. Horea is essentially the land just across the harbour from Raglan which is often referred to as Birds Bay, and is an area which centuries ago supported many people living in kainga or villages. Some of the pa sites are among the earliest known for the west coast between Manukau Harbour and Mokau. Artefacts recovered there by the Birds include moa bones found by Bev which date to before 1250. Also in the extensive collection are flax pounders, adzes, pounamu pendants and early tattoo chisels, all of which provide a remarkable glimpse into early Maori life.

Recognising ancient bones and precious stones used to make tools and jewellery in primitive times was a skill the Bird children all learnt from their father, Kit recalls. Their finds were held until recently in an unsecured farm shed by the new owners of the Birds’ property and homestead. Two years ago the treasures were boxed up and transported to the museum where iwi from both Raglan and Te Akau – Ngati Mahanga and Ngati Tahinga – blessed them at a special ceremony. At last Saturday morning’s official opening, kaumatua Russell Riki acknowledged the preservation of the taonga for both Maori and Pakeha. “The Bird family have gifted it to the world, and Ngati Mahanga and Ngati Tahinga stand at your side,” he said. Raglan ward councillor Clint Baddeley also acknowledged the “ongoing relationship” between local iwi and Raglan & District Museum Society volunteers who, with the help of Keith and Jocelyn Bird’s children, have worked together on the exhibition. “It is poignant for young Maori to see their identity and see what it means to Raglan,” Cr Baddeley said at the ceremony. And he explained how many of the artefacts had been used as tools to provide a livelihood for their ancestors. Museum Society president Rodger Gallagher described the Bird family collection – with its accompanying installation panels – as a “superb exhibition” which tells the story of a past era well. Lynette Williams was the lead consultant and curator for the exhibition, assisted by Dean Cato from Design Strategies. Anderson Design turned the design concepts into three-dimensional reality. Funding for the exhibition came from the Lottery Grants Board, Trust Waikato, the Stewart Bequest and Waikato District Council. *The permanent exhibition is open daily at Raglan Museum. Edith Symes

Local children's special fundraising effort for Maui's dolphin ur local Raglan children are O amongst the best educated in the country about the plight of the Maui's Dolphin. Nikau Pinfold did something very special to contribute to the efforts to save these taonga. At the last Creative Market, Nikau organised and ran a stall selling lemonade, baking and beads – with all proceeds donated to the Whaingaroa Environment Centre’s Maui's Dolphin program. The idea came from Nikau’s regular visits to the environment centre, where she has been talking with Danielle Hart, collecting information and learning about these rare dolphins. Mum Jodi said “Nikau got really into learning about Maui’s Dolphins at home, researching and making her own Maui Dolphin posters. It was Nikau’s own idea to raise some money making use of our excess lemons and limes”. So during the school holidays, Nikau spent lots of time planning and worked hard making and baking for the market stall with friend Ayla Lindfield. On the day she found more of her friends eager to help.

From left to right: Selva Petzold de la Cruz, Luna Petzold de la Cruz, Nikau Pinfold, Grace McGregor, Bella Wynyard at the Whaingaroa Creative Market.

The Shack featured in NZ Café Cookbook editor Anna King-Shahab approached them last year with a brief to select a couple of their best-loved dishes. The two dishes they chose were the Pork Belly Baguette and the Crushed Green Peas, Poached Eggs, Feta, Mint and Dukkah. The Shack’s two recipes have been put with other recipes from about 50 cafes from around the country in the cookbook, showing cooks how to recreate these top cafe signature dishes at home. “It’s a lovely book. It’s been well put together.” Justin says being included in the cookbook alongside some “exceptionally good” cafes from all over New Zealand was very flattering. “A bit of recognition is always nice,” he says. “We work really hard at what we do so it’s like a reward.” The New Zealand Café Cookbook is available from The Shack for $50 a copy.

One of only 60 of its kind in the world, the UFO-styled home is a great acquisition for the owner but there is no doubt the house will be missed by the Raglan community. The home had previously been owned by the late sea captain Peter Farrell and sold at auction in March 2013 to a Futuro enthusiast from Christchurch.

Suuronen as a ski lodge. Creating a swinging sixties style elliptical fibreglass house, for a while, the Futuro was lauded as a potential solution to the world’s housing problems because it was easily assembled and could happily balance on the side of a mountain. According to Simon Robson, a Yorkshireman now living in Texas, and probably the world’s leading authority on all things Futuro: There are nine in New Zealand, seven in Australia, five in Finland, five in Germany and two in Antarctica. The new owner plans to complete some maintenance work before re-siting the unique dwelling in Christchurch.

Stay safe at Labour weekend and beyond

B a tight focus on safety ahead of the

oaties are being urged to maintain

traditionally busy Labour Weekend on the Waikato region’s waterways and off the coast. “If you’re heading out on the water over Labour Weekend or planning to use your boat over summer, it’s important to stay safe,” says Waikato Regional Council’s maritime services team leader Richard Barnett. Top tips for making it home safe are: • make sure the marine weather and tide are going to be good before heading out - that information is available at www. • check your equipment before heading out • wear a correctly sized lifejacket – if using an inflatable check canisters and that the bladder is not punctured (see for advice on how to do this)

• know all relevant boating rules (www. • carry two forms of waterproof communications that are right for the area and can contact someone during the entire trip • let someone else know where your heading and when you expect to be back time. and • skippers should avoid alcohol. Richard says council harbourmasters would be out and about helping to keep people safe over summer. “Good communications are particularly important,” says Richard. “You need to be able to contact someone quickly if you’re in trouble.” Going easy on alcohol was particularly important for skippers, he adds. “You’re responsible for every life aboard your boat, so make sure you take that responsibility seriously and ensure everyone gets home safe by not overindulging.” Waikato Regional Council
