article featuring Mick Fanning, Jordy Smith, Julian Wilson, and more…
“Progression is one word that comes to mind. Hell, Jordy Smith pulled an ultra smooth rodeo flip, Julian got ultra deep on his backhand, and Kolohe Andino punted in front of his heroes. In fact, 13 total surfers were aboard the Indies Trader IV. Sound a little busy? When they’re elite athletes, the inst crowd on board simply pushed the level of surfing to about 13 on a scale of 1 to 10.”
Red Bull Mentawai: Anatomy of a Super Trip
Words like “epic”, “all-time”, and “classic” are heard all too often around the island chain that is the Mentawais… these are the words that come way too easily on the tongue in this swell-pounded region. You’ll be standing on the deck of a surf-charter boat sipping a cold one and the words might drift across the water to you…”awesome”, “best session ever”, “off-the-scale”. Maybe this renders them meaningless for when the real deal comes along. So you might forgive me for pinching myself as I stand on the back of the Indies Trader IV chatting to Mick Fanning after a barrel-fest session at Rags Right when he says “That’s got to be one of the top 5 barrel sessions I’ve ever had”.
Wave of Compassion: More Than Your Average Boat Trip For 10 days in October, an elite crew of surfers and photographers joined one grand prize winner on an epic voyage from Nias to the Mentawais.
This wasn’t your normal boat trip: Our goal was to meet the local people and see the work of SurfAid International in action. SurfAid offers a chance to give something back through health projects that promote community-based, self-help solutions. Primary goals include combating Malaria and rebuilding communities damaged by the tsunami and earthquake.
