A big swell in the Caribbean sent myself and a few rippers down to Bocas del Toro earlier in January. The sights, sounds and taste on Isla de Colon satiated our surf appetite. Our sense of adventure heightened as we boarded a catamaran and set sail for an outer island. We stocked up on food and water, leaving behind the crowds in exchange for open seas. Surfed by ourselves for 3 straight days, not a soul around.
Swimming and riding waves in the salty waters of the Caribbean Sea was incredible. On our return we opted in to our captain’s Pirate Shower ritual. Diving from the bow at 5 knots and grabbing the rope trailing behind was a thrilling experience and a great way to cap off a sailing trip. Below is a GoPro video of my Shower (thanks Jon for capturing that moment), along with a few images from the sail. Be sure to look out for more coverage in the coming months from the likes of Outside Magazine, Eastern Surf Magazine, and Western Digital.
