about this series
All of these photos are from one two-week trip to the Mentawai Islands, off of the big island of Sumatra. These islands are an unspoiled paradise. A group of us decided to go, all around our 40th birthdays, to stave off any sort of mid-life crisis by logging some serious barrel time. And that we did. We timed it perfectly with a series of large swells. The place is so photogenic it's ridiculous.
I published an article about the trip in The Surfer's Path. Click here to check it out.
