The wind let down just as the Fiji Surf Co boat pulled up to empty Namotu Lefts. On board were girls from the Australian National soccer team and luckily, a couple of photographers, one of which came to the rescue and tried his hand at underwater photography when John pulled a malabar grouper out of a cave and needed someone to take photos. No one minded that the waves weren't massive. A walk on Namotu, some fun surf and sharing fish slime...smiles all around. A HUGE thank you to Lawn (like the grass), for being a champ and taking photos of John's fish. May you find waves to make your Merrick 6'8" shine in the next few days.
The Fiji Surf Co family headed out to the Cannibal Sandbar and had a day to relax and play...which is what we do pretty much every day, even when it's considered working. Small waves don't keep us away from the water.

Yesterday, we headed out early to find the surface of the ocean glassy and beautiful. We spent a little time at Cloudbreak, then surfed Swimming Pools. Spearfishing has been great lately, with the water crystal clear and welcoming. Plenty of fish have been landed for the Fiji Surf Co crew, as attested last night by everyone after an evening of dinner, kava and story telling. Today, the 23rd, the water was even more clear and ended well with more fish on the boat including a gaped-mouth Malabar grouper.

Fiji Surf Co headed out today with a solid crew. We started off surfing overhead Cloudbreak, then moved to Swimming Pools near Namotu Island. Everyone was smiling and plenty of waves were had by all. To finish the day, we moved to our third spot, Namotu Lefts and scored some more uncrowded waves. All in all, it was an awesome day. The excitement on board was felt by all the whole way in.

It was smaller than usual at Cloudbreak, Fiji today, but the waves were still fun and smiles were on everyone's faces. William and Alice made catching waves look easy and lined themselves up for a few shots. During the lulls in the waves, John D. scavenged for lost fins to give to the kids as Fiji souvenirs. After a surf at Cloudbreak, the crew headed to Namotu and swam with sharks for the first time and loved every second of it. Once again, Fiji Surf Co delivers on the fun factor.
Lucca (above) didn't get the fat Cloudbreak barrels he'd hoped for today, but he was all smiles anyways, helping our visiting groms to catch waves and know where to sit. He got to swim with sharks for his first time today as well. Swam right down to them.

The swell came in nicely for the Fiji Surf crew with a few four foot sets cleaning us out and breaking a leash or two.

Above, stoked. Below, Johnny shows us how some Aussies spend their "work" trips by ripping down the line at super dun Cloudbreak, Fiji.

The surf was super fun in the morning and brought in some solid three foot sets but mellowed out in the afternoon. Plenty of great waves for everyone! A swell is hitting the 11th, so we'll see what happens!
Malia and Stu were on spearfishing overdrive today, holding their breaths like monk seals and
