Phil in Nias `09 (part 2)

Here is the second round of photos from Phil Goodrich`s most recent trip to Nias.  Phil is riding his 6`2 Doc Aviso in the following shots, and the photos were taken by Santosha Wau from Nias.

When I saw this barrel, I was blown away.  Phil is such a nice, soft spoken guy on land, but he truly transforms into a lion in the water. Here he is in a place that most surfers can only dream of…
