Hashini & I. This beautiful Sri Lankan girl is a ray of sunshine and smiles. Her mother works at the restaurant at main point, where Hashi chats to all the patrons of Upali beach resort and from that has developed the best set of skills. Fluent in english and Tamil, and learning French & Spanish!! Every time I go up to main she is waiting to give me the biggest squeeze and brightest smile pre and post surf! Gonna miss this! 🎞 @nicolas_de_gouberville

A coco a day keeps the doctor away 🌴🌴🌴 ➰ Most days start with coconut oil on my skin as a natural (v.low) spf and moisturiser, I'll then fo sho have coconut milk in my coffee, followed by coconut water as great pre/post surf hydration, feed me some coconut sambol (shredded coconut, chilli and lime) with anything and I'll be smiling! They're also great to take for walks on the beach!! ➰ If you're still reading then you'll know I'm nuts about cocos and also have probably never read the word coconut that many times in one post! 🙈

Thanks to my homie Bugz (Ryan Heathcote) for this shot from a couple days ago before the swell picked up! ➰ Bugzy is a crazy talented water being. Known for his long barrels at desert point whilst playing the guitar! He reckons the acoustics whilst you're inside the barrel are the best you'll ever hear! ➰ This shot was caught on his makeshift water housing! Which is essentially a wooden box with some sponges for padding and screws & bolts holding it all together! Thanks Bugsy, you vibrant soul! 🌞☀️🌈💫💛

Petrichor is the amazing smell after it rains on dry soil. 〰 It brings back memories of my grandpas garden as he would water his veggie garden in the summer days at home. 〰 Took this shot cruising through the rice paddys after a stormy surf, breathing in the freshness of this beautiful land with great company 🌾🌿🍃

Arugam Bay is not only a place of surf board riding and Mambo-ing, it's a place of diverse culture. While there are many differing belief systems Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam and Christianity, there is synergy and a clear sense of harmony and acceptance within this beautiful community. Abay
