VIRGIN ISLANDS

Back in the late 70's and early 80's a crew of surfers went on a sailing expedition in search of uncrowded surf. With little more than charts and a compass onboard they cast off to a region that held stories of secluded pointbreaks where during peak winter months large north swells would peel off for over a hundered yards. Overlooking a torquoise colored bay were lush gardens of canefields that offered a local fishing fleet protection from the often harsh tradewinds. For surfers this translated to perfect offshore conditions. Years later, as some of those passed on, their offspring, with equal ambition, followed in their paths. Recently I joined Dylan and Jose Graves and friends to a surf paradise that their father Lewis had relished twenty some odd years earlier aboard those Sundek missions.

BAHAMAS

SLATER 'n FRIENDS' SECRET BAHAMAS GET-A-WAY (featured in NRG 2000, Surf NRG vol. 8 Video) While back home in Florida enjoying his sabatical from the World Tour 6X World Champion Kelly Slater and his longtime friend Matt Kechele hoped on board an expedition to the Outer Islands of the Bahamas. Stretching along 760 miles and located just off the southeast coast of Florida the Bahamas are comprised of over 700 islands and 2,000 cays. With the combined knowledge of Dan Davidson of Flying Fish Tours and seasoned pilot Reggie Parnell we were turned onto some of the secret treasures that are hidden along the Bahama island chain. On board for two seperate journeys were South Florida surfing twins Kyle and Bryce Cohen. Both expeditions portrayed just a hint of what potential lies along the Outer Reefs. The following pics are from our expeditions:

PANAMA

Donovan Frankenreiter and his Realm posse bake in the sun in one of the lesser traveled regions in Central America. They surf, they fish, they play guitars while kickin' back in the heat of the tropical ozone. Where a local ride means hitchin' up with da local pedro and swingin' him a buck for a lift down the beach on his horse or hoping onboard a boat trip with an appetite for secluded surf. As Donovan drops a line and trolls to the island he discovers "you can't count your fish until they're filleted" as he battles a beauty of a dolphin. Local surfer Cholito is ripping, we be jammin' with the Board (of Tourism), and checking the surf captures the realm of this segment.
