Iain O’Brien: “A Boy From Petone”?


Not to obsess about O’Brien, but his blog’s subtitle — “Just a boy from Petone” — had me wondering, well, what exactly this “Petone” was all about. There’s very little information about it online, but it looks like it’s an idyllic beachtown near Wellington, on the southwestern tip of North Island. I should have known, from O’Brien’s ridiculously bleached hair, that there was some surfer-culture in him.
