Silver Ferns star Maria Tutaia is no stranger to showing off her never-ending legs on the netball court.
And now the 28-year-old has revealed even more of her natural beauty in a striking lingerie photoshoot on the wilds of Piha Beach.

Tutaia recently teamed up with stylist and make-up artist Eithne Curran for an "artistic collaboration" - and the results speak for themselves.
Tutaia braved the elements and stripped down to model a variety of lingerie pieces from upmarket boutique brand, Goss Lingerie, as photographer Sherry Roberts captured the magic.
Tutaia loved it, telling Spy: "I like to take myself to places I have not been before and I had complete faith in Eithne and we are planning to work together on further collaborations."
Multi-talented Curran told Spy: "It was a meeting of the minds when I went to the airport to take care of Maria for a commercial shoot."
A friendship sparked and the two agreed to do a shoot together.
Curran, who has been working in film, fashion and advertising for over 20 years, immediately saw the potential in Tutaia's openness, strength and beauty.
"We come from Pacific Island backgrounds: Maria is Samoan, I am Tongan Irish - we had a lot in common.
"It was very important for our collaboration that we both had pride, respect, humour and a clear sense of who we are and where we are from," Curran told Spy.
"I like creating my own artistic collaborations and Maria is not only a beautiful woman but there is that imposing courageous athleticism that also makes her stand out - she is unafraid."
Also photographed in Goss Lingerie this month is actress Frankie Adams, 23, who has been working on her international career and calling Los Angeles home since leaving Shortland St earlier this year.
Adams flew to Auckland last month to catch up with friends and family and work on secret projects. As well as posing in lingerie, Adams also found time to feature in the video clip for Kiwi chart-topper's Six60's new single, White Lines.
