Captain Martin Daly was born in Australia but has spent his life searching for some of the best undiscovered surf spots in the most remote parts of the world. He now runs a world renown surf charter business in Indonesia, the Indies Trader fleet. He takes the GoPro family back to one of his earliest […]
If May means one thing in Indonesia it’s that the wet season has gone dry, and the swell floodgates have opened instead. True to form, the first big low of the season reared up recently, with just enough west in the swell to entice Marlon Gerber and Mikala Jones to strike out for the far […]
A volcanic archipelago of 18,000 islands (16,000 on high tide, apparently), Indonesia is also home to the Wallace Line, which separates the Indian and Pacific Oceans and leads to all sorts of wild conditions and energy in the strait between Bali and Lombok.
One of the first ground swells in Indo in year 2017. Sunday surf sessioon with Marlon Gerber, Jay Davies, Nyoman Satriaa (Blacky), Dermaputra Tonjo, Betet Merta and other guys at Keramas beach.
A 6 minutes edit of pure right-handers barrels with: Gonzalo Chendo Velasco, Marlon Gerber, Chalupas, Jay Davies, and Cesar Siles.
Mikala Jones, Marlon Gerber, Tai Graham and Desert Point future star Awan Hadi could have aimed for the usual sure bets when the Indian Ocean came alive during a big swell, but with such a massive population of surfers hungry to see some juice they knew crowds would be at worst-ever levels.

While the surfing world flocks to Lombok and Sumbawa in hopes of scoring Desert Point and Super Suck, locals Tai Graham, Marlon Gerber, Lee Wilson, Rizal Tanjung team up with Mitch Coleborn to stay home to score Bali’s most fickle best kept secret.
The first shots are fired at Keramas with Chris Zaffis, Adam Bennetts, Marlon Gerber and twins Darma Yasa Bleronk and Dharmaputra Tonjo. Barreling right handers, and they are living the dream.
Bali surfing royalty Rizal Tanjung and Marlon Gerber are setting up a surfers’ retreat in beautiful Java… and who are we to argue. Also featuring Betet Merta, Seabastian Zietz, Anthony Walsh and Bruce Irons.
You may not recognize the names, but the cast putting on a show in this clip is very familiar with the mechanics of one of Bali’s most perfect righthand barrels.
Bali’s east coast, which hosted the world tour host when it last visited the Island Of The Gods, isn’t the most feared or famed region of Indonesia, but it definitely checks a lot of boxes when it comes to getting tubed.
Lee Wilson, Marlon Gerber, Adam Bennetts and Pepen Hendrik are the men on duty here, as our man-on-the-black-sand, Ivan Tanjung, lets the camera roll.
