Surf trip description:
Heading out to Koror Palau and hitting up Bill Ridpath for a couple of boat trips to Palaus western reefs. It is bigger in the fall on the east shore, but the west is ok this time of year. I will post pictures if I can get a photographer friend to join me.
So there I was surfing some of the fastest cleanest outer reef breaks that I have ever seen. For a place that is not on any surf map or guide book the surf in Palau is the best kept secret in the Pacific. There are outer reefs that take the power of the Philipean Sea or the Pacific Ocean from 100m walls to 2-3m deep on the reef resulting in solid lines and great barrels. I made three pilgrimages to the outer reefs during my working visit to Palau and was never disapointed by the shoulder high to double overhead waves. My only regret is that I only took my 9' 0" and not anything for biger surf. The local surf population consist of less than a dozen great people who are very willing to share there breaks with anyone who can share the respects, cold beer, and fresh shashimi.
