Namotu Island: Best Vacation Ever

For my Birthday Jen & I went to Namotu Island Fiji.
We were lucky because on Monday October 6, Cloudbreak went off with 30 foot sets. Jason Polakow flew in to windsurf Cloudbreak.
The surfers included Paul Morgan who was a standout and has a long ride in this video, 17 year old Russ Bierke, Rasta, as well as Namotu Lifeguards Joshua Ku, Karl Attkins and Tevita Gukilau.
All clips shot by myself & Jen. Canon 60D Gopro Hero 3, Sony RX 100 3 and Phantom 2 Drone.

Thank you Jen & Namotu for the best Birthday ever, love you guys!
