Stoked to have word from James Tanner and Phileas who have been keeping themselves busy in Sri Lanka. Here's what James had to say:
It's Lazy Left / Midigama / Sri Lanka. Photo cred Martin Dahlgren
Striking up conversation w. a holidaying Swedish family. The two excited boys shared a unusual story - unexplainable flying objects - a few days earlier, they observed a young couple, flying prone on waves, on couch cushions... Strange but wonderful.... At that moment Natalie and I brought out Phileas and inflated it for them.... explaining they'd in fact been watching us ride those waves on the 'surf mats'.
On that hilarious conincidence and the boys curiosity, we offered to help them into a couple of waves. While Martin, the father, offered to take a few pictures for Natalie and me. We all had a terrific time. Especially seeing the photographic outcome. Everyone got some memorable rides.
Thanks G-force, Dahlgren family & Welligama for your hospitality.
Looks really fun! Fin free ain't for me but James and Natalie seem to be going OK with it!!!
Many thanks to Martin Dahlgren for the photos. More to come from James hopefully!.
