Video: Rip Curl The Search – An Nou Ay

A 10-hour flight from the capital, many hours in transit lounges and a 12-hour boat ride later, the old “orange saying” was confirmed when the group awoke in dawn’s early light to the sound of waves breaking: perfect 4- to 6-foot waves, turquoise and unbelievably hollow, on an uninhabited island with only driftwood scattered across it’s fine sand for company. The wave itself is fickle – turning on only those who are ready and waiting – and with conditions in the AAA zone the spirit metre was cranked up to high and it was fins in and over the side.
