I’m beached as, Bro.

Prior to departing for New Zealand I spoke with a friend about the country’s culture and what to expect. In many ways, similar to Australia, there is a very laid back culture where good things are ‘sweet as’, and ‘Bro’ simply replaces ‘mate’.

The other phrase that threw me was ‘true’ meaning ‘yes’ – as in;

‘I’m going to the cinema tonight.’

‘Really Bro? True!’

My friend shared with me the popular link below which, perhaps best describes some of these laid-back stereotypes (whether they be completely true or false of course) as well as other words said in a definite kiwi accent.
