After surfing epic, Indonesian perfection all day, the OceanGybe boys are hungry for more than waves and head to the local market for dinner supplies. “Kami mau dua ayam banyak, saya potong” translated from Bahasa Indonesian into English literally means, “We would like two big chickens, we will kill them”, but when you order a chicken in Indonesia, it arrives warm, feathered and definitely clucking.
WARNING: If you are squeamish (like Bryson…see him gag @ 06:48), a vegetarian or from PETA, please be advised, chickens are killed in this video and you might not want to watch. Plus there is some great surf!
With each seasonal harvest of the yam, the people of Pentecost Island in Vanuatu celebrate. In this webisode, the OceanGybe crew are invited to take part in the celebrations and witness the age old tradition of land diving. Anyone for sweet potato?
With exception to the plastic trash throughout high tide lines, the Rowa Islands of Vanuatu are paradise. With Khulula at anchor near an uninhabited beach, the crew of OceanGybe conduct yet another garbage study. This webisode is brought to you by KING Bleach.
As Khulula and her crew approach the archipelago of Vanuatu after a week at sea, they spot a smoking volcano, known as Yasur, on the island of Tanna. Mount Yasur is one of the world’s most active volcanos and the crew take a tour to investigate closer.
After months of boat work and two new crew members aboard Khulula for the passage to Vanuatu, OceanGybe is ready to set sail again, but are all on board ready to lose their land legs and possibly their lunch? Welcome back to the open seas!
In late 2007, Khulula dropped her anchor at The Bay of Islands, New Zealand. 5 months of boat work was needed. Road trips ensued. And now, with only days before they set sail north, they need to fit in one last paddle at one of NZ’s finest left point breaks. 15 ft. @ 15 secs.
