OFF THE WELL WORN PATH: THE AZORES

OFF THE WELL WORN PATH: THE AZORES

Situated in the mid-Atlantic, off the coast of Portugal, lies the Azores — an extensive group of islands known for their dramatic landscapes, deep green hills and (more often than not) incredibly fun waves. This time, however, momentum wasn't with the team as they boarded their flight over to the islands. 

Upon arriving, the Azores were experiencing on of the greatest rainstorms of the year, with clouds engulfing the sky for the entire week and landslides collapsing all around. The waves? Nothing more than small, short onshore wobble. Fortunately, the crew made the most of the bad weather, hiking toward a nearby volcano, bathing in the local swimming holes and capitalising on the barely surfable conditions.
