Island exploration trip. Join us.
“Mate, it’s a island off yonder with sick waves, a dirt (air)strip and it’s completely deserted.” - Those words from an old surf buddy were enough to make any surfer want to find out more about this mythical island. So after as much researching the island and the surf it certainly looks likely to have good consistent waves with the possibly of scoring some very good waves. So like Jetstar’s failed Mystery Flights concept, we have decided to offer you our own mystery flights tours to this undisclosed island. Without giving the location away and keeping it a mystery, here’s what we can tell you:
- It’s a small uninhabited island with a dirt airstrip and epic waves*.
- Only a fortunate few people have surfed the island.
- You will be guaranteed to have the island to yourself.
- We'll have a plane, a boat and a 4WD to explore it.
*There’s one not so little clause you should probably know before signing up. We (Eddie & Anatole) have not been to the island ourselves nor have we seen photo evidence of these “Epic Waves”. We are basing all our intel on surf rumours, google earth and a hunch. As Captain Cook said, ‘So we can’t promise you perfect waves (who can), but we can promise an adventure and if we are lucky and the rumours are true some epic waves.’

Pricing has been set to cover costs only. Your payment will be covering the following: food, accomodation, boat, 4WD, plane, fuel, medical supplies, tariffs, ect (not alcohol). Yes you’ll be our guinea pigs you might say, but seriously all going well and we find some great consistent waves we would love to be able to offer this surf trip to other guests in future - this trip will be a guide with your feedback as to whether we include this itinerary into our standard packages and destinations.
