Back in Padang again after another successful wave hunting expedition. We had the boys from ocean groove out here for this one and they didn’t disappoint. Barrels where had all round with Pud putting in some epic performances on the solid days. Dingo was out there at every opportunity and really made up for lost time showing us how to get the job done.
Digga and Dolf where blowing the back out of them, while Ozzy sat out there and pulled the bombs. We belted around the islands in our speed boat the boomerang at every change in wind direction keeping us one step ahead of the rest of the fleet as Jimmy showed us how to do it with style.
As the afternoons wore on Croc dog and Tripper leading the way, the rods would come out, cold Bintangs loaded aboard the Booma and the daily fishing trip would begin with some great success, (even through Captain Butter Fingers let the Maccy of the trip go). As we prepare to leave Padang again with our new water maker installed, stay tuned in for our next report.
