Yesterday we moved our holiday from the Haira vessel to the land camp situated in front of Cokes point at the northern end of the Maldives surfing atolls. The boat ride was something else with a ‘whiteout” storm hitting us on the transfer from the harbour to the land camp. I wish I got a picture of Kirra Perry’s face as the boat got right up on one edge… she probably thought the same about my face, it felt there was no-way we weren’t going to capsize that thing, but after 40 minutes of battling a raging sea and full tilt rain we arrived at our destination safe and sound. Must say it felt nice to be back on solid ground after a week on a boat. The waves were too stormy yesterday arv to consider surfing and even this morning they are looking wobbly, shifty and wind effected… probably do some sight-seeing around the island today and soak in some of the local culture.

We called this deckhand ledge Michael Jackson, cheeky little bugger who loved to joke around. I thought he would be deserving of a Woolgoolga board riders shirt, so now there’s one floating around the Maldives… I know our club president Michael Featherstone would be proud.
Tuckey Joe’s down the southern atolls was easily my favourite wave of the trip
