Aspiration Attained: Brett Barley's All Time Skelton Bay Trip
Posted on July 31 2017
We've been waiting for Brett to drop this edit. Riding a 5'8" Pig Dog, Brett experienced the gamut of surfing; from brutal beat downs to mind bending tube rides. Here's a behind the scenes look at how it all went down...
"If you're curious what it's like to finally go to a place you've been dreaming of for 10 years, and score the best waves of your life, at the worlds longest barreling left point then hit Play and enjoy 14-minutes of an experience of a lifetime!
If you're looking for a quick hit of barrel action in a short edit, continue scrolling the page. This edit is meant to be a journey, showing the feelings one goes through in preparing for, and partaking in, the best surf trip they've ever experienced. I first heard of Skeleton Bay back in 2007, and had been dreaming of surfing it ever since. It appeared so perfect, so flawless, so easy, that you were guaranteed the wave of your life as soon as you drop in. ... I was wrong about most of that. It sure can be perfect, but it is a very difficult wave to surf, and even harder to score since it rarely ever breaks.
I won't say too much here.... But Skeleton Bay is my favorite wave in the world, and going there for the first time was so incredible, I wanted to try and bring that experience back with me to share with all of you. So grab a snack, sit back, and enjoy the barrel visions, the wipeouts that hardly anyone talks about as much, and the joys of finally crossing off a bucket list surf trip."—Brett Barley
