PAPATURA trip with THE MAD HUEYS #STAYOVERIT / by Juan Carlos Medina

With the shortest notice possible , the mad hueys called me to join their adventure through the Solomon Islands (Papatura), apparently there was a nice swell coming.

Our first day started just fine, with a ghetto-looking plane, broken seat-belts and quite a "rustic" look. It was meant to take us to papatura, It was the craziest flight I've ever had , not to mention the craziest landing ever on to a tiny road in the middle of nowhere. Definitely a flight to remember. Next day, swell had already arrived but conditions were not favourable , it was rainy, cloudy and windy thoughout the whole day. We actually went wave hunting but had no luck, we did not find what had expected.

On our third day things changed up a little bit, we decided to check the surf at 6 am and it was the best idea ever, day was just extremely beautiful and when we arrived we couldnt velieve the perfect conditions and waves !!! So amazing that Brenno and Shaun jumped out of the boat as soon as we arrived. That day was just the highlight of our trip and made the trip quite unforgettable, and ofcourse the delicious mahi mahi and yellow fin we managed to catch that day!

Here are some photos of our crazy trip! STAY OVER IT!!!
