A return …
A tropical depression initiated the chase. It involved my return to an island of flying fish, dragon flies, butterflies, raptors, deer, et al. The hope was that the system would light up a couple of waves I came across during my last visit, but didn’t get to surf (as other waves beckoned and these babies weren’t quite doing it). This time the return was short and sweet, but timed well. The swell was very short-lived, 15 hours. Such systems like to tease like that. You have to be ON it. Anyway, to find the right you turn left at the bubbling spring, make your way along the gorge, step past the water buffalo, turn right at the bird-watching platform where watchers in kahki wait for the raptor migration to begin, and you will get to a milk tea stand which also sells shells by the seashore. Leave your stuff here. Then make your way down across the grassland, and then balance your way across the boulder and pebble beach. Paddle out, and enjoy the solitude and barrels. Alternatively, you can turn right at the bubbling spring and walk until you get to these gorgeous creatures
When you get to the pile of coconuts go down the steep path. It’s a long walk but worth it. The wave is loooong
lotsa love, clif.
