Benjamin Sanchis, in Indonesia. That’s all we’re gonna say and all you need to know. Seems to get really, really barreled wherever he goes.
It’s been an awesome end of season in Indonesia. September with swell after swell, perfect barrels back to back and when the winds started to change in beginning of October, more swell, one of the biggest and one of the best. Indonesia on fire tip-to-tip. Did you get some? Here are some shots to illustrate one of the best months of the year.
Mikala Jones getting shacked out of his mind somewhere deep in the Indonesian jungle. Sit back and enjoy a surfers point of view.
A ridic slice of Indo tube madness, big and long barrels.
Yago Dora in his second season in Indonesia during this September 2013. Getting barreled and barreled!!
Benjamin Sanchis returns with his latest episode of “Where’s Sancho?” It’s been a while, but Sancho delivers us through some heavy Nias barrels. Joining Sancho are Alain Riou, Koby Abberton, Tai Graham, Diego Santos Boniglioli and Antony Dachi. The pits are sick and the tubes do spit. Film and Edited by Pietro l.Franca with work by Antonio Zanella and Marvin Laurrie.
Guilherme Herdy in hollow waves to the left and you will see the result. So many peaks spread through out Indonesia and get ready for the big swell this week.
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.
