The Wilderbeast was back with a bunch of motley mates from around the globe. We left in a storm. We returned in a storm. Full circle encompassing a voyage of fantastic surf, a released sailfish, and good old relaxation.
The Maldivian Maestro, Ian, began complaining about aches and pains he had not felt in years. But he could not stop. It was 6ft and reeling. Just the 2 of them, and the captain would not let him go in. The beers never tasted so good that evening. Langy saw similarities to his time at Jefferys Bay. "way heavier" was how he described this wave. Adrian caught the longest wave of his life, as did Ian, and the Wilderbeast. In fact it was one of the best days of the year for all and sundry·.but enough of that.
Between fishing jaunts, Brian and JB, caught more than their fair share of waves. Our American rep, Johnno, learnt a thing or 5. Neil simply loved every minute of every wave.
We have to mention that little left on that lazy afternoon. It was only an hour and a half. But it was perfect and any goofyfooter worth his salt would have loved it·funny thing was, the natural footers weren't complaining either.
2 swells in 10 days. That'll do!
