A Mermaid:

Mischa Davis enjoys swapping her longboard for a custom-made tail when she’s not competing in top level surfing contests.

The 23-year-old is in the women’s longboard and open divisions at the 50th annual Hyundai National Surfing Championships at Piha next week.

”I feel happiest when I’m out there amongst the waves.”

The Piha resident has long been fascinated with mermaids and handcrafts her own tails from wetsuit material. They incorporate free diving fins to help her swim faster.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
