Fiji

IMG_0019Last year over spring break, I had the chance two spend two weeks over in the Fijian islands. After the 8 hour plane flight, we searched the whole airport for our surfboards, but they didn’t show up. At first we thought it was going to really effect our trip, but they shortly arrived the next day. We were staying on Tavarua, a little island you can walk around on 15 minutes, infamous for the good waves and warm weather. This photo was taken at cloudbreak, a short 5 minute boat ride away from the island. Most surf breaks around this area in Fiji require a boat ride. For example, cloudbreak is basically in the middle of the ocean. The coral reef comes up shallow from deeper water, and creates a hard breaking peeling wave across the reef. The reef is very alive and sharp, so getting caught on the reef is not a fun time.
