• Boat Story: Indo 2010 - Part 1

There were a few rules on the Mangalui Ngulu boat that held nine of some of the best and most diverse women surfers in the world. Number one rule was E.O. It means ENGLISH ONLY. This rule was numero uno (yes that was a contradiction) because I like many other Aussie’s use the excuse that we live on a rather large island in the middle of nowhere and have no need to speak another language. Oh how this small town girl could not have been more wrong as I had to listen to Sofia Mulanovich (PERU), Ornella Pelizzari (ARGENTINA) and Claudia Goncalves (BRAZIL) speak in a cross Spanish/ Portuguese mix and only guess what they were talking about, oh and they totally took no notice of rule number one!
