World Surfaris trip 29 July - 9 August« on: June 02 2007 06:06:00 »
I'm going on a trip with world surfaris on july 29, on the Handu Fahli boat and was hoping to find some other people who are going to be on the same trip, or who've been on the boat before. I'm starting to froth but since I'm coming alone it would be good to make some contacts before the trip starts, or just get some info from people who've gone on a world surfaris trip.

Cheers boys, can't wait! Been stuck in the Arabian Gulf for the past 6 months - need some waves so bad! I'm staying in male on the 28th so let me know if anyone else is arriving a day early.

I'm in Qatar - did you get any waves from the cyclone these past few days?! Apparently it was 12 metres in Muscat! I've heard it's pretty inconsistent there though. Not sure what my plans are but might do a Sri Lanka trip later in the year. Drop me an email.

I am on the same boat as you - Handhu Fali Male & Maluku Atolls 29 July-9 August. I am from Sydney and this will be my first trip. I too am starting to froth (except fo the flu I am getting over - perfect timing to get the immune system up I hope). I will also be on my own as mates kept changing minds etc and I spat the bummy 2 weeks ago and booked. On advice pointers, only thing have been advised is that booties are a good idea. I have never used before but will be taking. If you are in UAE and stuck for supplies, I will be at local boardshops tomorrow & Sunday.

Don't worry about making friends before you get there as there's plenty of time for that later. Your surf guide will meet you at the airport and transfer you out to your main boat. You won't need booties and the best break is Jails that they'll take you too. We scored it up to 7 ft on the sets and perfect a couple of years ago but i think we were really lucky.
Hope you have a lot of fun there Brett

I too am going it alone. Mate pulled out after saying he had already paid deposit. I wasn't going to miss out and cannot wait. Just packing at the moment. See you there. Anyone leaving from Sydney Sunday 29th Singapore?
