First trip out of the season is always special and our early April trip this year was no exception. The trip was led by the 3 elder brothers Stu, Matt and Pete. Stu was responsible for those nice pink team Hawaiian shirts. Matt we reckon averaged 8 hours a day in the water for 9 days straight and must have caught over a 500 waves (seriously). And Pete the self-professed weekend warrior who just wanted to get a few proper top turns in and was banging those out by the end of the trip. Backing them up were Stu’s boys Gav, the best surfer we’ve ever seen from Cairns and Cam “I’ll spear my leg with the nose of the board making a big hole, get Captain Manto to stitch me back up and get back in the water within a couple of days! And last but not least the dreadlocked tag along Aaron, who doesn’t do shit talk (don’t ask) and should always sit down in the zodiac. Cheers boys. Was a cracker trip to get 2019 underway.
