Spiky Gold Hunters in town for dive store opening
Commercial kina diver Dion Aupouri-Akuhata, of Spiky Gold Hunters fame, will be joined by some of his co-stars for the opening of a pop-up dive store on Ormond Road.
Trading his yellow mask and snorkel for a tool belt and sander, Dion has been hard at work getting the Coasty Kidds shop ready for a special opening at 5pm today.
Spiky Gold Hunters is a Duke channel reality TV programme about a crew ready to risk it all gathering kina.
Dion's fellow cast members Raymond, Storm and Glen are in Gisborne for the opening and will tell a few stories about their experiences.
“Glen is one of the best divers in the country and I also have Rory from Dirty South Dive and Lucy from @hunting_lucyjaine here for the opening,” says Dion.
There will be a blessing at 6pm and plenty of kai, including “seafood galore”.
