New Kickstarter Update and Rewards!

Given the incredible response we have had over the past week, we thought we would fire out a quick update via the old interweb. It is Friday morning, everyone needs a coffee to prepare for the weekend, so here is Hugh’s idea…

Here is Hugh, on board Khulula, updating us all.

In the rewards department, we have two new levels:

  • Thea Designs has donated 5 beautiful trademark Stirling silver OceanGybe Winged Anchors necklases
  • LiveGreenVictoria ‘s household energy audits are a winning deal. Reduce your energy consumption, use less plastic and help us with Tide Lines.
  • Stand by for more rewards from Arbutus Routes, a dinner cruise on Khulula, music downloads, and more gear !
  • Huge thanks to Sitka and KarenJess for their support !

OceanGybe – Webisode – 11 – Ayam Makan "Chicken Meal" – Indonesia

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!

Musings on Sail to Surf

Want to Sail Around the World and Surf ? Yeah right.

About 7 years ago now, three young friends came up with this great idea. They were going to sail around the world in small boat and surf all the best waves in the world. The idea began to germinate in their fertile yet partially frozen/incapacitated minds after yet another freezing surf during the middle of the Canadian winter. “Sail away to the promised South Seas, where the surf was always pumping, the water warm, the locals friendly and the wind always blew 10 – 15 knots” -ahhhhh..

Finding Peace at Sea

This morning I was able to find peace with my thoughts. Sitting on the rolled up dingy on Khulula’s foredeck, drinking tea and watching the sun illuminate the world, I was able to close my eyes, take a couple deep breaths, allow the anxiety to leave and I find my peace at sea. Continue reading
