    Ni Sa Bula TW!

    so i just landed in LAX this afternoon coming home from Fiji. first let me say two things, this is a toyota fans/wheelers paradise...turbo diesel hilux's everywhere....

    for real though. The trip was amazing. i could easily spend a year there or something or live there for a while. (i didnt want to leave).
    The people are absolutely the nicest group of people i have ever met/seen. There is endless amount of things to do there (especially if you surf :drool: )

    Anyways....
    we flew out of LAX at 11:00pm after a quick 10 hour flight we land in Nadi, Fiji 5:00am (fiji time).
    you know what ill just let the pictures do the rest......enjoy!
    Nadi at 6am

    Ok.....here come the fun ones....(well fun for me at least...)

    Cloudbreak...for all you surfers out there, Cloudbreak is a house hold name...
    for those of you non surfers....Cloudbreak is a surfspot off of the island Tavarua.
    it is in the top 5 best breaks in the world....so surfing there was absolutely surreal.


    ANyways....Cloudbreak was closed off to the public (even the Fijian locals) to surf for 30 years... the only way you could surf it is if you stayed on tavarua island...which is very very pricey.......well one month ago they opened it up to the public..... so none the less we took advantage of that once in a lifetime chance to surf there and let me tell you......life changing... the photos came out amazing.


    and FYI these waves were easily 13ft tall...and in the water....that looks like a skyscraper and when it breaks it sounds like a bomb
