VIDEO: Occy Turns 50… Still Rips in the Mentawai

On this particular trip we surfed everything available, an epic little right hander over a very shallow reef where Occy and his guests scored some super fun rides for the first 2 days.

Epic nights at the bar with daily surf slide shows, Occy on the Guitar sharing stories of epic sessions past and an all round sense of brotherhood was the vibe for the entire trip.

I found myself sitting on the front steps of Uma 9 (Occy’s Villa) overlooking the incredible and infamous No Kandui wave, it was only 2-3 foot and unsurfable at the time and yet Occy saw potential in every wave that rolled through.

Occy led the way, spending 6 hours in the water each day of the swell, scoring some epic tube rides and plenty of face for the “99″ World Champion to do his “thing.

He shared stories of early boat trips through the Mentawai Islands and of his epic win at the OP pro which was held at the wave right in front of us… conditions were a little bigger that day.
