All Lefts In The Republic Of Maldives
OUR 4TH AND FINAL EPISODE IN THE WELCOME TO WATER SERIES, MITCH, YAGO AND NATE SCORE EMPTY LEFTHANDERS FOR DAYS IN THE MALDIVES
Maldives. Located in South Asia. Home to prized surf breaks such as Chickens, Lohi’s, and Pasta Point, became an increasingly sought-after surf destination for salty shredders around the globe beginning in the mid-to-late 90s. Like many surf spots back in the day which surrounded this area, their only occupants were marine life and local tribes who couldn’t give a sh*t about perfect 6-8ft empty tubes in 70-80 degree water temperatures. And Luckily like Mitch Coleborn, Yago Dora, and Nate Tyler, you can still score some of these spots relatively uncrowded if you time it right!
That’s where this video comes in to play. Mitch, Yago, and Nate, who are distinctly three different humans (besides their shared attribute of being goofy-footers), recently traveled to Maldives together in hopes of scoring some solid vacant waves, while Tom Carey and Nate Leal tagged along to document their adventure. As you can see from the video, they scored tons of relentless lefts. Yes, lefts. There wasn’t a single right ridden, so if you are looking to see these guys rip on their backhand in this video, that’s just not gonna happen.
The boys returned with a ton of excellent footage, good stories, and even better luck of not striking out due to strong winds and storms that typically circulate the area July through September. And speaking of footage, a quick anecdote… We had thought the video was completed, and as we were just about to send it out to the world, we got a call from RT (director of Psychic Migrations) which opened with, “Did you send it out already?!” Not even a hello! JK, RT, we love you. Turns out that Nate Tyler had watched the video and noticed his best clip wasn’t in there, and RT wanted to respect that. So, he sent us a new file immediately and everyone was happy. That’s how it should be, right? Right. Enjoy.
