June 25th – July 6th
Trip 7 welcomed a bunch of Australian boys aboard Nomad for an epic adventure.
Anticipating some smaller swell, we started our trip further north than usual and in the process jumping in the slip stream of what little traffic was around and scoreing most of the name spots in the northern Mentawai area with only Nomad in the channel.
Once the guys all found their feet and the swell started to build it was time to have a crack at some more challanging waves further south with all guests pushing themselves and scoring some memorable moments at heavy breaks like Greenbush, Lances Left and Right and Rag’s Right.
The trip was rounded out with a perfect flat water sail home across the straight and heading into mid July there is still no sign of the pesty tradewinds. It is shaping up to be a great season.
Cold beers, big smiles and empty lineups abord the Nomad.
