Gidget trip: Jan 3 – Jan 21
Gidget and Tony were back for their annual January trip hoping to score a swell or two on this 18 nighter, along with Spence, Andrew, Damo and Alan, it made for an uncrowded jaunt throughout the Mentawai island chain. In fact we crossed paths only briefly with one other boat during the entire voyage. Starting out with small clean waves, Huey then provided steady Sumatran swell for the majority of the trip as we headed off in the opposite direction. Plenty of fun sessions, and some pristine days in great company. Can ya think of a better way to start the new year. Thanks once again Tony for the pewter mug, mate presented to me on the way home. Received the inscripted version in the mail , just recently. A better average than Bradman eh, nice one mate.
