I’ve spent the last few years trying to coordinate this Great Barrier Reef kite trip. I’d heard whispers of remote waves that only break in certain conditions and rumours of their location but all the locals who surf out there stay tight-lipped. Nobody shares this kind of knowledge.
So over the last couple of years, whenever I was fishing up there, I’d look for waves. I scoped out patches of reef with potential and I started putting together a plan to come back and kite it one day. Watch the mini-doco here.
