9781480211162: Island Explorer: Surfing, Sailing and Exploring Beyond Sumatra and the Mentawai Islands.

“Wanted: six guys with guts!” An obscure advertisement in a surf magazine sets in motion a journey through Sumatra’s jungles, across volcanoes and along chaotic roads, through isolated villages and temples to the fabled Mentawai Islands and beyond. As the Island Explorer drifts deeper into the wilds, its occupants gradually lose their connection with the “real world” and start existing in their own dreamland. But the future becomes uncertain when the captain jumps ship and the stand-in skipper slowly becomes unhinged in the tropical heat. Join the quest to find pristine islands, untouched coral beaches and flawless surf. Sail through equatorial Indonesia’s sparkling seas with a group of surfers searching for that elusive, ideal wave. Please note that the print version of Island Explorer does not contain the photographs that are included in the Kindle version.

About the Author:

Dan Scheffler lives just outside Cape Town, South Africa with his wife and son. He loves rough travelling, mountains, surfing and the sea. He is a doctor in general family practice, but tries not to let work interfere too much with his surfing. When the Cape winters get cold or the Southeaster howls incessantly in summer, he escapes by writing about wild places and tropical trips. Island Explorer is his first book.
