Sixteen-year-old Arpad Leclere spends his time between Bali and Belgium. He was largely raised in Indonesia and fortunate enough to be spending the majority of that time in the southern hemisphere just as it kicked off one of the best swell runs in recent memory.
Arpad Leclere is a fifteen years old Belgium young fella resident in Bali with his family. A few months ago he spent few weeks in Taithi at Teahupo’o then went back to Bali for a while to recharge the batteries and he flew straight to Mentawai. This video celebrates his progression and his relationship with the ocean.
It was a big system coming to Indo. In the beginning it looked very solid and in spite of not living up to these initial expectations the swell that rolled in was of a good size and with a long period. My intention was to go somewhere different, as every year Lakey Peak is getting more and more exposed. No doubt the waves are really good at Lakeys and you have plenty of options but I wanted to escape from the crowd and shoot other waves with the boys.

We want to know who will be the future? Who will be taking over down the line? Who are the contenders to be the next top Indonesian surfers?
