Indonesian Muslim Wedding 2014. #longpostalert🚨 I’m going to start uploading some travel moments more often, mainly to help me remember the stories and to get people stoked for their travels coming up! I usually remember moments like this traveling way more than I remember the waves or the wind during the trip. This moment was in the summer of 2014 with @thekerrkid. We decided to go to Indo for 5 weeks with no plans other than surfing and kiting as much as possible. After about 4 weeks of staying at a hotel in a remote part of Indonesia, the hotel manager Bobby invited Brendan and I to his sisters wedding. We were the only white people and attracted a lot of attention with our cameras. We watched the entire ceremony and were eventually greeted with handshakes and huge smiles from the couple. It was an awesome experience that made me feel so far from home but at the same time very at home with this family’s great culture. @cabrinhakites @thule #thulecrew #travel
I’m super excited to announce that as of today I’m officially the new sales rep on the West Coast of North America for @cabrinhakites and @npsurf. 8 years ago they brought me on as a team rider and they have given me countless awesome opportunities and learning experiences since then. I’m very excited to now be more involved in the business side of the brand as well as continuing my job as a team rider. I look forward to getting everyone stoked with the best gear on the water!
