PAPUA NEW GUINEA, South Pacific - Australian stand up paddler Kai Bates recently went on an amazing trip to Papua New Guinea to take a chance at riding the tidal bore that frequents the river Digul in West Papua New Guinea. After a two-day plane trip, eight hour car rides and long boat journeys Kai made it to the river and had a blast.
“This trip to Papua was something super memorable,” said Kai. “A place of such beauty, and contrast to my home and most places I visit. I felt I wasn't only there to surf a wave but also check out the different people and culture. I ddidn't get a lot of great surfing clips but I have some great memories from the journey. Thanks to fanatic sup for allowing me to go, and Forrest Ladkin for getting the clip together.”
