TBT to the Mentawai Islands

Throwback Thursday to 2010 and an epic day at Rifles in the Mentawai Islands during a surprise off-season swell with only three of us out and 700 yards of perfection!

I'm riding a trusty 5'10" thruster thumb tail that unfortunately - as did several others - succumb to the wrath of heavy reef breaks around the playground area after about six or so months of daily abuse.

These were some of the best sessions of my entire surfing life. Thank you, Indonesia; thank you, Jordan @kanduivillas for putting me in the zone; and thank you, Kaliang @blackpearlsurfphotography for the shot!
