Stuart was running the boat the first time we went out. Really worked everything for the trip well. Even gave my son his board to surf Cloudbreak as the rental wasn't that high performance.
weather is unpredictable I accept that.

Stu did seem like a top end bloke, which is why I'm able to keep an open mind about the whole situation.

It was interesting trying to work out the actual pecking order with the whole operation. Fijian Business seems quite complicated. Apparently they make a fair bit of cash from movies....no surfing. Kind of got it all down. Lots of boards at the Depot. Bottom line is you're still out in the ocean and relying on the crew if anything goes wrong.

Jet, did you paddle out at CB?

And when you say it was onshore, do you mean strong trades? Which are cross-shore at CB?

Those trades almost always vary during the day and almost always back down at some point.
