For me Fiji is one of those places where given a small opportunity, a window of time-off or a job I will jump at the chance to go. There is something so magical about Fiji and every time I go back it just gets better.

One wave in particular that stands out above the rest I can honestly say still scares the hell out of meā€¦the infamous Cloudbreak.
