Everybody, I would like to introduce French Franck! He is soon to be hitched to a wonderful girl named Laure and we are in the Maldives for his bucks trip. Instead of recreating The Hangover and having an insane bender, Frank and a bunch of his best mates from both Oz and France have merged on this little paradise strip of islands, to have the surf trip of their life. Luckily for me I was asked to tag along.

It was a bit of a journey to get to the Maldives. 27 hours of power in fact. But once the boys hit the water for their Maldivian initiation all travel weariness was forgotten, as they surfed a fun little right hander named "Blue Bowls" (not "Blue Balls") in the southern atolls. It was mostly 2 – 3 ft but every so often a bigger one would sneak through the radar from deep in the Indian Ocean.
