Indonesia Photo trip April 2012 – Mentawai Islands about the Indies Trader 3

I was asked to cover 8 guys on a surfing trip of their lives aboard the Indies Trader 3 throughout the Mentawai Islands over the course of 12 days.  Adventure is not even the word.  Chasing waves with the best boats and technology available….. in the best place in the world is an experience I wanted to share.  So I did, everyday on my blog partnership with www.Slavetothewave.com!  I had a series of blogs where I wrote and posted photos of everyday and the people, waves and experiences we encountered.  You can see them all here www.slavetothewave.com/ben-hicks/

Here are some of my favorite images from the trip.
