This was a pretty special moment. After a week of scouring the coasts of India for a decent wave, we loaded onto a local ferry and headed to an island we’d spotted on Google Earth. It was quite a mission, but the wave looked good (from space), breaking through the jetty and reeling on both sides. Dave was sick when we arrived (typical for India travel) and curled up sweating in his boardbag. But when the light and swell came together, he rallied himself, got focused and paddled out for this amazing session.
Castles in the Sky was all about travel and discover, the beauty of hardship and pushing beyond your comfort zone…and this section was the sum of all those parts. What a pleasure watching Rasta’s flow and connection with this wave.
