Just bought my tickets for a trip to remember, surfing big lefts in Chile, I am so excited to go and learn about the country, people and explore the places. Will be travelling with Maurice/Julie and some local surfers here in Sydney.

I always wanted to check out South America, and no better way than to travel with people who are from Chile. I am really appreciative that my work, Readify, has let me take unpaid leave.
Waters in Chile are freezing, and I don’t have a 4/.3 wetty, Maurice has been kind enough to offer one of his to use, so that puts me to just buy a hoody, booties and some gloves.
The average swell height is 4-6ft, perfect, I am a bit concerned that I might fall in love and stay there and just become a surf bum, ha ha!
Another place that I am definitely keen to surf will be Chicama in Peru, I guess I will plan this for 2013.
Well, I am hoping to survive the PNG trip, which is now only 2 weeks away, we changed the plans and will be travelling from Vanimo To Madang, and have cut out the mountain climbing, mainly due to timing, we would rather be surfing or diving instead.
Here are some picks of the last trip the guys had in Chile.
I am, well….Excited! Peace….
