heading out


Mikala Jones, Marti Paradisis, and Kristov Wau(in the foreground) head out. Jem Cresswell is contributing photos to this project, and he shot this one. This wave looks pretty, but it was scary even from the boat, as some sets swing very wide. One wide one sucked up right in front of us while Daniel and I were on board and we barely scratched over it. I thought for sure we were going to get flipped.

Nias local Kristov is an awesome guy, always smiling, and he absolutely charges. He has a habit of sitting deeper than anyone else, and this session he got into the biggest wave he said he'd ever surfed up to this point. If you're headed out that way, you can contact him on fb, him and his family rent out a simple place to stay and they'll take good care of you: http://www.facebook.com/pages/nias-kristov-surf-camp/222323464481308?sk=wall
