(South Fakarava, Tuamotus, French Polynesia)
It’s not everyday that a good-looking Brazilian named Kim asks to catch a ride to Tahiti on your boat. So there’s no way we were going to pass up on the opportunity. Now one would assume that Gregory would be the more excited of us two about this recent development, and in that they wouldn’t be incorrect. Though the reasoning behind that assumption is not what you’d expect.
Kim is a Class A surfer and he does not sport the bronze-cheek-baring thongs one so quickly associates with the babes from his home country.
Bathing suit preferences aside, Kim joined us from our new friend Josh’s boat Kuhela. Josh and Kim met in the lineup at Careneros break in Bocas Del Toro, crossed the Pacific together, and have journeyed through the Gambiers here to Fakarava. With Josh picking up new guests in the coming days, and Kim having Tahiti waves and airports calling, the time to part ways had come. Super score for us – Gregory has a live in surfer buddy, our empty cabins are getting some guest action, and to top it off Kim is about the sweetest, most easy-going guy, who quickly fits in with his sarcastic wit.
