Picture by Simon Williams. firstname.lastname@example.org TEAM WOODS: Rebecca with her parents Dave and Jodie, at their Copacabana home. Picture by Aaron Brown. Once in a lifetime As a WCT surfer, Rebecca Woods has seen many of the world's best surfing breaks. When asked to choose the best, she doesn't hesitate. "The surfing at the Mentawai Islands is undoubtedly the best," she said. "It's a surfer's playground. "Every single wave you rock up to is one of the best waves you've ever surfed. I dream about the place. It's that good. Every surfer in the world has to go there at least once." But there is a down side to surfing this Indonesian hot spot. "You come home from the islands and it's like you don't want to surf because it was just so good over there," Woods said. For instance, there were the girls with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) who insisted on keeping things neat and tidy, Woods said. "And then there were the things that were so important to some of the girls, and not so important to the others." Woods said tempers were tested at times. "We did have a few cross-cultural misunderstandings between some of the girls who didn't know each other." But by the end of the trip, the girls who had fired up came to realise that no offence was meant by the earlier quip. "Everyone really started to get along well at the end," Woods said. "The comedy and the banter between everyone was so funny. That was probably the best thing about the trip."
