Hot! Z.Y. FIELD OPS – PAT MILLIN

Dear Zoo Familia,

2010 has been an action packed year full of travel and and adventure around the globe. Spent the start to the year on the famous Northshore of Oahu where I battled it out amongst the worlds best. Then from there I took off to Fiji to stay at the incredible surf resort on the island of Tavarua. Spent Seven days surfing, fishing, and drinking beer. It was AMAZING!!!. After Fiji I went back to Cali to score the rest of the winter season. Had a handful of insane sessions and good times with friends and family, which was much needed. Summer came quick and once again I was presented with a great opportunity to spend the summer In norway to teach surf lesson in the Lofoten Islands. Without hesitation I was on it. Once In Norway I spent the long summer days teaching Europeans how to surf in the freezing arctic temps. With my location being so high up in the Arctic Circle the daylight stretched a full 24 hours so sleep was rare. Full days and full nights!!!. Some of the rawest nature I have ever experienced, to the Mid-night sun, fishing, and hiking. One of the best trips I have ever taken. Now I’m back home in San Diego working surfing and getting ready to do it all over again. Headed back to Hawaii late December and not sure after that but I will be sure to keep you posted on my travels.
