Surf trip to the remote Mentawai islands of Indonesia
Last year, I quit my job and sold nearly all my personal belongings to fund a dream surf trip around the world for 9 months. I traveled through Australia, Indonesia, Japan, Hawaii, Mexico, Costa Rica and El Salvador. This photo captures one of my purest moments of happiness throughout the journey and I'm so thankful to have the opportunity to share this with everyone. During this leg of my trip, I was staying in a very remote area off the coast of Sumatra for over 2 months while living off fish, rice and coconuts... it was paradise. Getting out of your comfort zone and traveling to these faraway places really serves to open one's perspective of the world and I think it is immensely important. Hopefully my story, and this photo, will inspire someone out there to pursue their own dream of chasing adventures around the globe. Cheers!
