Watch: The Island, a Quintessential Surf Trip

By on

Surf trips going south fast is a passage in life. Flights not connecting, flights being delayed, boards battered, swell not arriving, arriving too late. It ain't an easy gig, honing in on swells across the world, executing, or not. As surfers, it's some of the hardest decisions we'll have to make. And that's kind of a blessing, in some ways.

Welcome to The Island an edit from Alessandro Dotti and Nils Astrologo featuring Roberto D'Amico – a globe trotting, swell chasing aficionado. The trigger was pulled to get to this remote little setup for a few days of solid tubes. And of course, things go wrong. Roby's ankle pops, hospital trip, flights screwed. But was it worth it? Judge for yourself.
