Day 6 – Lay day 2

Day 6 – Lay day 2

We arose in the town of Siberut to pickup Steve our 9th and final surfer of the trip.  It was nice to see some civilization and get a feel of the land and the people.  We were anchored in between two islands with a bustling community surrounding us.  Small dugout canoes were out and about fishing and such.  Steve’s ferry arrived at sunrise and the tin boat went to go scoop him up.  Once onboard we also picked up a local mechanic to fix the outboard motors reverse gear.  We headed back out to the breaks about an hour away as the mechanic worked on the motor on the upper deck of the Trader.  It was a bit smaller again and we ended up at the wave magnet, i.e. Thunders.  The boys went out for a surf in the inconsistent but still foot over head (on the sets) conditions.   They surfed it for a couple of hours before it got a bit inconsistent and it was time to head South for the afternoon to find an empty break.  We ended up at Lighthouse rights again and scored some fun conditions into the evening.  Everyone got a lot of waves and of course we had another killer sunset as I shot until dark in the tin boat.  Another killer meal from Tim and we were all ready to hit the bed before 9p.m.
