Surfing with the G.O.A.T. Kelly Slater!! A childhood dream come true!
In this episode, we have been anchored up behind an island near Macaroni's resort in the Mentawai islands, enjoying our time in paradise as a monster swell hits the islands. Yosh was out for his morning surf and blabbering away to someone random, when he turned and right there in front of him was his childhood hero. Kelly Slater. Continuing our journey south through the archipelago, Kelly is not done yet and wants to see Nandji in all her glory so the captain of his vessel decides to try and run us down!!! We safely arrive into the last village and port of call before heading off to our atoll destination. Trying to find the last few supplies before the great adventure into the middle of no where! The town has limited food supplies, except Durian! The most disgusting and stinky fruit going around!!!
In this episode, we are anchored up in one of the best anchorages we have ever been in. Protected from all the elements and a short tender ride through an amazing mangrove chain to a world class surfing wave! This is as close to paradise as we could ever find! With a huge swell inbound, Yosh needs his big boy pants! Learning that there was a crocodile spotted in the mangroves, us Australians can not resist ourselves and go searching for this elusive crocodile. After hours of searching we thought it wasn't going to happen, then all of a sudden!!!!
