RE: Community discussion Mentawai

Martin Daly,, if you want to be Mr. famous surf explorer and be in the magazines, than you should also able to cope with some criticism.

Look at what's going on on "your" islands: bribery, politicians involved, student riots, lots of money being made, whilst people still die of diseases that can easily be prevented. and what do you do?

Call people here greedy and find yourself another island chain, so you can do it again?

RE: Community discussion Mentawai

If people want to talk about positives and not negatives then Im all over it, I have stood up against the negative influences and am being attacked by them because of this. I really find this whole forum pretty ordinary. I am in the business of making people happy-stoking them out getting them barrelled and getting a few waves myself along the way. i have never exposed any surbreaks over the years but yes people that came with me and those that followed have done so. Life is good, lets think about surfing more and good shit- Rick Cameron , Surf camps , wave rights, govt surf taxes- Good Grief lets just get over it.This site shits me, people spilling the beans on surf locations, get off your arse and go and have a look yourself- spend more time surfing waves instead of the net

Martin whether you think this forum is boring or not is irrelevant, this is a place to say what you want, when you want, how you want to who you want.. its a free world, freedom of speech, just like the ocean, take your boat where you want, leave only footprints, not diesel fumes and a wake of surf resorts

RE: Community discussion Mentawai

I'm stuck in a 9-5 nightmare, i used to surf every day of my life,all over the globe, now i can only manage 2 weeks a year, i know its my choice, i earn a shit load of money to try to justify it, next month i'm off to mentawai for my annual two weeks in the water, if martin didn't have fun there for the last ten years i'd never have gone, i'm guilty of doing more web surfing than actual surfing,but even if its flat for two weeks i'll just be happy to be somewhere close to the waves, be happy you've got two arms and two legs & someone, somwhere along the way, taught you to surf.

RE: Community discussion Mentawai

After reading the discussion on the community thing, it seems to me that the Mentawai people don't want you there anymore,
and even some people in the marshal islands are truning against you, before you even opened shop there.

Go fisgure!

Who do the local people support?
