Sep '10 Cloudbreak
David Scard our Goldie office consultant stands like a giant this week after returning from a stealth trip from Cloudbreak on board Stellar our Fiji Charter . The recently released break is under a new law which no longer limits access to Tavarua resort guests only. At 15ft+ though it wasn’t going to be for the faint hearted and Scardy, Laurie Towner, Dean Brady and Shaun Cansdell made the most of the epic conditions. The wave of the day has since been splashed around and we’re absolutely stoked for Scardy who’s still buzzing eurphorically and in all honstey staring like a deer in the headlights as the prasie oozes around him (we don’t know if it’s the media environment or the after effects of the wave). The footage of the wave as seen below is courtsey from our good friends from ASL and shot by Talon Clemov. Read the Surfing Life Article...
July '10 G-Land Stealth Mission

Mar '10 PNG Frontier, Secret Spots
Just returned from a last minute hit and run trip put together by the team at World Surfaris. I spotted a cracker swell on the charts right when we had a scheduled maintenance week in port Kavieng. Bugger swinging spanners in the engine room sitting in the harbour whilst 4 – 6 foot waves are dropping out of the sky on the outer islands regions. A quick call to World Surfaris and the gang worked around the clock utilizing the stealth club. The trip hit and run idea was dropped on WS with 48 hours to fill and locked down within minutes of the deadline, an awesome job.

Pohnpei Surf Club. The surf here reaches epic proportions!!!!!!
Sep '09 Rewards from a Stealth Mission to Pohnpei Surf Club
West swell ranging from 4-6′+ from Mon to Wed which was perfect for Lighthouse rights. Allois has rarely surfed here and couldn’t believe how good it could get. I got one of the longest, biggest most perfect rights of my life on Wed arvo from the outside peak…kicked out in the channel approx. 300m down the line…omg I was sooo stoked.
Sep '09 Scar Reef Steath Mission – Scardy & Dylan Longbottom!
Stealth Mission was called for G-Land, Bali, Lombok and Sumbawa on the 9th of September. It was pretty obvious there was a major swell event about to happen. The tides and direction favoured Scar Reef, Stealth Pilot Dave Scard and heavy hitter Dylan Longbottom decide last minute (Thursday night) to leave the next day and chase the swell to Scars. Were happy to report with grins from ear to ear that it was another complete success…. here are some shots Leigh McCullough from Scar Reef Surf Camp took from the channel.
