Team Rider Mike Antonie delivered us a USB full of shots following his recent trip and had the following to say:
“We just returned home from an epic surf trip in the Mentawais staying at Kandui Resort. Some of the waves we surfed (as seen in the photos) were Rifles, Batcaves, Bank vaults, 4 Bobs and Ni-pussi. The most memorable of our sessions was on our last day when we scored clean, uncrowded, 6 foot Rifles where we had the best surf of our lives.”
For those of you who don’t know the Antonie family they are parents Tim and Sue, and kids Mike, Tom and Will. Tim has always ridden Trigger Bros surfboards – his brother was a team rider back in the day, and sons Mike and Will are part of our current team (we’d have Tom too but he is wrapped up by one of the competitors). All of the boys surf with a technical ability that impresses National coaches when they come down to train the club’s junior guys and girls.
As you can see, when technically sound surfers ride perfect waves… the results are incredible.
If you aren’t a little bit jealous or inspired to visit Indonesia we don’t believe you!
Thanks for the shots Mike (we even ran a couple of Tom).
