The trip to G Land from Kuta consisted of these vans, a wild night ride in them across ferrys, thru all sorts of craziness at a very hi rate of speed. And finally we land here, before first light. Where I had, still to this day, the heaviest cup of joe I've ever had. And its a good thing I did too. Cause what was in store for us needed our full attention. After all these years of wishing, waiting, wanting and needing to get to G Land, we were only one more boat ride away. Bobby's Camp was our next stop. I will never forget that mystical place, the jungle, the howls of the monkeys, the tiger tracks, the aussies that we shared the camp with and the tubes. Oh the tubes.
By now we had offloaded the vans. The gear, the surfers, and the white G Land Express boat shown just below was loaded. Eight of us, minus the boat driver were about to embark on the last leg of our journey. The journey that I had been dreaming about ever since I was a kid. The one that I had seen for the first time in Surfer Magazine. The one that blew my mind. Actually one of many that blew my mind. Little did I know I was headed for a life changing, unforgettable experience. The camp was nearly empty in fact we were the only boat in for several days after this shot was taken. Maybe luck had a part in it all. Im not sure. But I do know a lot of sacrifice and hard work played a role in arriving at this moment. All of it a labor of love. A love that has only grown stronger. The worlds oceans are our playground. I know you love them just as much as I do. That love we have for the Oceans needs our attention. The world and its Oceans are now, more than ever, being threatened, polluted and disrespected. It is our responsibility to do what each and every one of us can do to protect the worlds Oceans so that generations to come will be able to expercience them in all their glory as they are meant to be enjoyed. Just as my father has and still does. And as my Grandfather did. And as your families have and will hopefully continue to do. Protecting the worlds oceans is and should be a top priority for every man, woman and child.
