Our friend and professional surf photographer Joel Coleman of Saltmotion Photography is currently on a trip on board PNG Explorer – surf charter in Papua New Guinea. If you imagine empty Pacific barrels, no crowds, lots of fish caught, and a variety of quality setups and great vibe with fantastic food (think lobsters for dinner), then you are right!
PNG Explorer have only 6 last spots available on 2013/14 season trips.
Surfers can spend their whole lives in a search of a wave like this…
Korangai is truly an incredible setup and a very consistent wave. And it is so mechanical it is ridiculous. Once it gets big it might take anyone a while to master it, but once you learn how to take off quickly and tuck in, you will get barrelled before it spits you out for a short paddle back to catch one after another – all day long.
We are very glad to have Joel on this trip. His photos nicely capture the beauty of this wave. Enjoy the gallery!
