“Then, creeping into view, came the island they’d journeyed so far to see. It was past dusk and the remaining light was fading, so the crew decided to anchor around the corner from the break and wait out the night. Jacob remembers the exhilaration of the darkness, the anticipation after such a long travel, results unknown. “In the morning everyone woke up pretty excited. We weren’t too sure what to expect. We had seen a bit of footage of the wave we were looking at and it looked so good – a big, barrelling left. We could have just gone to the normal spots, the spots that other surfers have been to a million times, but we went for it – we did something more off the grid, we took the gamble – and it was thrilling.”
