Corey Stories: Searching In Indo

It was pretty much the perfect trip.

We saw a good forecast and bought tickets to the Mentawais. This was a crazy swell — it was same one that almost killed Parker Coffin at Kandui. Our captain was the man. His name was Dorris and he was so good at reading everything and helping us decide where to surf. We were only there for four days, but it was the perfect amount of time because we never got bored and everybody was having so much fun the whole time. We had this one session at a left — I don’t know if I’m supposed to name it — but it was some of the best waves I’ve seen all year.

Oh, and there was a taser on the boat, which was pretty much the worst thing you could ever have on a trip like that. One night, we all had some beers and I think everybody got electrocuted. That made it pretty memorable, although the waves could have handled that on their own. –Corey Wilson
