With all the gear on board we leave the bay and see the west coast of the island from a completely different perspective – the ocean. Danny points out interesting sites along the way before we pause in front of a stunningly beautiful little island with its long tongue of white sand and crystal clear water. “It’s a paradise for the sealions and other wild animals out here” he explains, holding steadily to the steering wheel of his big twin-engined boat. The journey continues, passing endless kilometers of wild, virgin coastline, then enter another wide calm bay at the foot of a big mountain. The water is an astonishing green colour compared to the water we had just passed, and higher up, behind the first band of green vegetation we can make out some wide craters, reminding us of the volcanic origins of the island. With the engine revs cut and the boat slowly advancing across the bay, Danny points to a wave that’s just broken. “See that? That’s the take-off zone, this is going to be big fun!” There’s not another soul in sight and Alexis and Danny are straight in the water making their way out to the peak. Although the wave wasn’t as well formed as some of the other spots, the head high wave breaking here in this kind of surreal scenery is perfect, rock solid and great fun. The sets roll in often and regularly allowing the riders to launch onto an endless series waves trying new tricks and hollering encouragement. This days stands out among all others for being so different, but also with that backdrop of craters giving the impression we were surfing on the moon.
