It seemed as if every other day we were repacking our bags and heading out on another adventure weather it be by boat, plane or car. We covered a lot of ground for spending just under 30 days in Indonesia this year. 5 days was the longest we ever stayed put to be exact. Because of this we met plenty of cool people and saw a ton of beautiful places. Here are a few of the sessions that @tessistess or I sat out to Document.

I paddled out away from the pack this morning a found my own peak. I remember paddling for this wave thinking it was gonna be the wave of my life. The offshore wind was blowing straight up the face and I took the last few paddles blind. When the water cleared from my eyes I was in a massive straight close out with nowhere to go. A few seconds after this photo was taken my leash snapped and my board broke, it felt like I went straight into dry sand with no water in between. An hour later @nellysmagicmoments gave me a big hug saying he was glad I was ok. I'm thankful as well πŸ™πŸΌ

Nate Fletcher stands up on his jet ski from the safety of the channel and watches closely as a man on a dark green board strokes into a massive wave outside the bowl at Mavericks. After a perfectly executed ride (as seen at 2:30) Nate screams "Thats not the commissioner, thats the Executioner!" Please enjoy, The Executioner!

Such an epic week searching for waves, couldn't quite make it out of this one on our own.

I will never forget the way this guy would greet us every time we showed up at his hotel in Mexico, he would use the few words of English he knew to create the biggest smile on your face. So many good memories! You will be missed Paco, Rest In Peace "my friend"

@noikukui is one of my favorite surfers because all he has to do is go straight and he makes it look cool! I was stoked to capture this clip of him today. Thanks @santacruzwaves for bringing the community together! #djiphantom4

Surfing magazine was always one of my favorite publications, bummed to see them go but happy to have been a part of a few of the issues. Thanks @chachfiles for nailing this shot two years ago on what was probably one of the best surfs I have ever had, this makes it that much more memorable. @petertaras @taypaul @jimmicane nice work and I look forward to see the cool shit I know you guys will come up with in the future!

Dodging my friends surfing is one of my favorite activities besides surfing itself. I put together a reel of my water footage from last winter. Link is in my bio starring: @tessistess @jessecolombo @dylansouthworth @austinmeetsworld @gooch_d @nat_young @noahwaggy @mattrockhold @noikukui @lairdhamiltonsurf @joshmulcoy

@tessistess and I met @kala.buthman in Spain for the last 2 weeks of his semester abroad but only lasted a few days in Europe knowing how close we were to North Africa. The swell forecast was looking dismal and we would have been stoked to get "Camel Point" just head high. We spent the following 10 days scoring an unexpected array of surf and finished off 2016 the best way we could have asked for. The link to the short film "Camel Point" is in my bio.
