The perfect town. The perfect cars. The perfect people. The perfect music. The perfect atmosphere. We might have had to wait six months for it, but the result was the biggest Beach Hop yet — a 20th birthday party befitting this iconic event. Whether by design, happenstance, or a fortuitous mix of the two, over the past two decades Repco Beach Hop has become the near-perfect Kiwi festival; five days in which new obsessions are ignited, bellyaching laughs are had, and lifelong friends are made. From humble beginnings, the Hop now rumbles into its third decade as the biggest and best it has ever been. 124 page book-a-zine covering the week long antics, from Wahi on Wednesday to the Top 10 shootout on Sunday. Happy 20th, Beach Hop — they say achieving true perfection is impossible, but you’re getting pretty damn close.
