Kandui Resort Trip Wrap-Up: July 9 – 21 courtesy of Riley Cooney at mentawaisurfphotos.com
Venezuela isn’t typically a country known for it’s outstanding surf. Needless to say, a group of 18 Venezuelans embarking on a trip to Kandui Resort in the Mentawai Islands was nothing short of a complete froth-fest.In all honesty I think this is probably the most surf-stoked group I have ever shot. As surf hungry as this group was, there was more than enough waves to go around.
The first day of the trip started with a good warm up session at Hideaways, giving the crew an opportunity to shake off the flight and get ready for the following day’s forecasted swell. It proved to be a much-needed session as we work to solid, flawless Rifles the next morning, and the crew got their first opportunity to experience one of the world’s most incredible rights at near perfection.
After that first Rifles session the rest of the trip kind of becomes a blur. There were so many waves and we surfed so many spots. I’m not sure if I’ve ever had a group surf this much in a trip, and while many in the group were between 40 and 50, they all surfed with as much energy and charisma as if they were 18. It was really cool to see that much hype in the water.
As always, it was another amazing Mentawais trip. I would like to that Kandui Resort for providing us with so much hospitality (and waves), and keeping the group in the water as much as they could. Couldn’t have asked for a better trip.
