OMG We’re Back in Bora Bora

Mysto Cook Island wave

Its a long story, but I’ll keep it short for now. After spending three or so weeks in the Northern Cook Islands and having an absolute blast, hanging with the locals, surfing fun undiscovered waves like the one above, spear-fishing our brains out and going to church more than I ever have in my entire life, somehow our prayers were answered and we made it back to French Polynesia. With no internet available for weather forecasts when we left, we were trying to sail to the Southern Cook Islands, but got caught in a rare wind pattern for the South Pacific. Where the trade winds die out, caused by a spinning low south of us and a high to the north and blow completely the opposite direction. So with no pre-knowledge of this weather pattern occurring, we sailed towards the Southern Cooks for two days before the wind switched and blew us downwind for, four stormy days, all the way back to beautiful Bora Bora. So, if we can get some new visas and the government lets us stay, its most likely down to Teahupoo for the ASP contest in a week, to root on Santa Barbara surf star, Bobby Martinez and see all our Tahitian friends once again. Thats it for now, but keep checking back and I’ll have a recount of our adventures in the Cook Islands published shortly and if anyone wants to get ahold of us, our Tahiti cell phone or as its know here, our Vini is working again, 689-24-31-37. Cheers – Kyber

    Hey there, Kyber
    Not sure what happened here, but was saying that since the winds have blown you back to Bora Bora, that’s a sign that we need to get your Mom & Dad and Jack & myself to experience your adventures firsthand. Am so excited and will wait to hear if you can stay there a while. Love & hugs, Karen & Jack
