Photos: Life’s a beach for Hana Kōkō in Northland

When Hana Kōkō (that’s Santa Claus in te reo Māori) comes to Northland he leaves the sleigh behind and arrives by waka ama instead. The big guy was the guest at a fun day on December 20 on Ti Beach organised by Waitangi Waka Ama Kaihoe and police Blue Light. Photos by Peter de Graaf.
