Bodyboarding at Socials Surf Break, Rarotonga Cook Islands

When I arrived at Socials surf break on Saturday morning, the sun was shining and the swell was looking pretty good. Only problems was the tide. It was too full and needed to drop a bit, so I drove the 100-metres to my friend’s place, which looks directly over the surf break. An Atomic-made coffee later (thanks JT) and the tide was beginning to do its thing, so I grabbed my camera and swam out to the break for a glorious South Pacific surf session.

A couple that made the editing cut.
