Had a great time on Bohemian Baru,awesome vessel lots of room very comfortable,Chris has excellent knowledge of all the waves up there and allways had us on the spot at the right time,

Jess (May 2012) 

The trip was great, Bohemian Baru is a sweet boat and the crew, surf guide and captain were unreal! Surfing in boardies again is soooooooooooooooooooooooooo good. It sucks having to put a wettie back on. The swell started off pretty good about 3-4 foot for the first couple of days then went up and down then totally fired for treasures on the last day. Did a 5-hr sesh cos we didn't know if the conditions would change as they started off really ordinary. I even pulled into a few barrels on purpose which is good for me as I usually pull in accidentally on take off or down the line. I never dreamed that I would be surfing within a few meters of an island (Pinnacles). The boys reckoned I owned that spot as almost all of the photos were of me that day. Skateparks was probably the most fun relaxed session we had, we all stayed out until we couldn't see anymore. Mid trip when the swell jumped we surfed Bawa and Schoolyards. It was nuts! Had the best drop of the trip at Bawa and made it, the photos don't do it justice. Anyway cheers heaps for the trip and enjoy the shots Jess

I'm writing from the plane on way home as i know i won't have time once i land -- just letting you know our trip was awesome. The boat, food and crew were all great. We scored really good swell and Moose managed to get us to empty waves nearly all the time. It was epic Steve was also great - he was doing the boat handover to Moose. We left Steve and Moose with some good pics which they will probably use. Cheers Mick
