The media super exposed Indo’s last swell, there were photos on surfing websites around the world. Here in Bali, at the epicenter, a lot of stories were making the rounds: Fights, hassles, drop-ins, the usual unfortunate drama, but the most common complaint by far was the crowd. Waves pumped from West to East, with reported 10 foot sets at Nias, epic Desert Point and smoking Sumbawa. A dream start for a September session that could remind us of that epic video from the early 2000’s.

It’s been a good season – and we’re only just half way through July! In spite of the trade-winds unusually late arrival, early-breaking Padang and the WCT circus provided plenty of fun, not to mention an influx of surfing prowess to an otherwise already blessed island. We caught up with foreign and local pro’s of all ages enjoying some of the best Bali has on offer.

We were having a good combo: with a good South swell we managed to surf Macaronis in the morning before the mooring system police would come and chase us away, then we would go to Green Bush to get the higher tide and the Northerly winds there.

We saw lots of people missing the best wave of the day distracted by Bali goddesses that were coming from the left and then you turn around and see this princess sitting on your right.

Like with any good circus the highlights are always in the side-show; It’s where you can see the bearded lady, the fattest twins and the headless man.

The rocky black sand beach of Medewi hosted over 40 grommets for one of the most challenging competitions of the GromSearch Series 2013. Waves in the 4 – 6 ft range pumped through into the bay all day long providing some of the longest left-handers throughout the whole of Bali.
