Despite cursing the airline for leaving our bag behind - we were better off than the poor ou who picked up his boardbag, only to have it fold in half on him! Now that's kak luck to be on your Maldives surf-trip and the baggage handler muppets have managed to turn your 6'2 board into two 3'2's. Ysss, the ou was spewing!
Missing luggage presets a unique set of problems - so our first surf was a full-on Vaal dam affair, having to borrow some mooi Adidas XL running shorts from hubby who lucky had stuck 2 pairs in the boardbag. After wrapping the drawer-string twice around my waist I was good to go, sort of. Thankfully we were the only peeps in the water, so total humiliation was avoided.
Have had a few days of super fun surf. Yesterday a full sunrise to sunset mission, with just ourselves in the water. Broken bodies by bedtime. And of course not a single photo cos we were too busy surfing!
Managed to hook a coupla fish on the morning trawl so looking forward to popping that on the braai soon. Already did some beach combing and found a drum and something that could pass as a grid. Boer gaan altyd a plan maak when it comes to a braai!
Internet is abysmal in the middle of nowhere, so generally trying to even get one bar of signal means climbing up onto the roof of the boat, and hoping for the best! Today for some reason it's working.
Charts looking good for the next few days.....
