I had a great experience shooting surf and lifestyle for the Alyssa, part of the Mentawai Dreams fleet. You never know what to expect, when you commit to spending almost two weeks on a boat with a bunch of strangers. But, this crew were a pleasure to be part of. The guests were also a dynamic bunch, full of energy. When the surf was pumping they were eagerly waxing their boards to paddle out to the line-up and when there was a lull in the swell we were seeking out adventures on small desert islands. Here are a few of my favourites from that special trip shooting for The Alyssa.
