THE SURF REPORT:
SHOULDER HIGH AND FUN. WATER TEMPERATURE IN THE LOW 70'S. AIR TEMPERATURE IN THE 70'S.
Tiki Adventures explored the Abaco Bahamas for a 10 day adventure with family and friends. Captain Stormy and Bev's youngest son, Collin Harrington brought nine of his friends along for this epic adventure. It just so happens that Collin and his friends happen to wakeboard really well. The guests included: Parks Bonifay, Shane Bonifay, Shawn Watson, Danny Harf, Eric Ruck, Chad Sharpe, Keith Kipp, Matt Staker and Tony Smith. We towed a 24 foot Master Craft behind the Tiki XIV so that we could have a stylish runabout and a great boat to wakeboard behind. We also brought 2 Waverunners so that we could do tow-ins surfing and wakeboarding. Luckily we had a calm crossing from Ft. Lauderdale to the Bahamas. We cleared customs and explored Man O War Cay and Elbow Cay for the next couple of days. We then went to Lanyard Cay and explored the islands around it for the rest of the trip. We found a fun left point reef break that broke off of a little island. The wave was in the shoulder high range and you could get 2 or 3 turns on it and sometimes a cover up. We named it Fire Pits or Tiki Point, which ever name you prefer. During our adventure we were either surfing, wakeboarding, fishing, spear fishing or snorkeling. The fishing and snorkeling in the bahamas is phenominal! Everyone was able to utilize their pole spears and fishing poles. We ate fresh fish, lobster and conch almost every night. It really was a trip to remember. Captain Drex
