Rip Curl Asia Surf Team Headlines April Issue of Tracks magazine | March 17, 2012 | Kuta, Bali: The Rip Curl Asia surf team just landed a 15-page feature in the new issue of Tracks magazine, “The Surfer’s Bible.” The article, “Indonesian Paradigm: A whisper of the past and an ode to the present,” is the centerpiece of the newly-released “Indonesia Issue” (April, 2012).


Featuring words and photos by veteran surf photographer Dave Sparkes, the story chronicles the team’s boat trip through the Mentawai Islands in September of last year. It is one of the largest editorials focusing exclusively on Indonesian surfers ever seen in a western surfing publication.
