Rest in Paradise Nancy Meherne!

It’s sad to hear that local Kiwi legend Nancy Meherne passed away this week. 93 year old Nancy lived a simple life by the sea in Sumner, New Zealand, gardening and hitting the surf on a board made by Christchurch’s legendary gumboot-manufacturing Skellerup factory. The surfboard – made in the 1970s – was a little worse for wear, but Nancy – made in the 1920s – exuded an infectious amount of joy riding the waves on her vintage piece of foam.

A life well lived, RIP Nancy.
