Chris & AJ's Adventure Continues

Word from Chris Goodwin that all is well in Japan. In fact, it seems that all is very good in Japan, bar one mishap.

Here's what Chris had to say:

Hi Graeme -

The Onion has seen some Japanese typhoon swells and done really well. I attached some stills and a gif which is of one wave.  We were doing stills not video this time.  This is at a break called Motel Shita near a town called Nachi in Wakayama prefecture, Japan

The bad news is two days later I peeled the Onion on some rocks and now will attempt a repair with what I hope is the right kind of Japanese glue.  We will see how that goes.

Hmmmmm... Done a proper job there. 😲 

I've given Chris soideas for repairs so hopefully we'll see the Onion back in action soon.

I didn't mention but the local elders here thought I was crazy going out on the mat.  They thought it was hilarious in a good way and enjoyed watching me surf the big stuff and get demolished by a few.
