If your a surfer, the Mentawai islands of Indonesia are on your bucket list. This is the experience of four friends that checked it off.
After two days of international travel the modes of transportation become increasingly...risky.
The atmosphere becomes comical and tense once you realize the aircraft is just a couple steps above a school bus...
The first signs of swell help to distract you from the safety concerns of your "lightly" maintained aircraft.
We now fully smell the salt air, we could not wait to be in the water gliding to our destination with the swell .
Sharing stories, making new friends.
YOU ARE IN THE GREAT BEYOND
The next morning, after arriving in the dark you awake to a dream.
You awake to a dream, but you are incredibly anxious...anxious to surf.
EAT SLEEP REPEAT
Only world champions can sign the bar stools. This one was retired...
