When nothing on a trip goes right… surf a left.
Indonesia is blessed with some of the best waves on the planet. The waves come from deep water with massive amounts of power. Even when the wind kicks in you can find perfect clean hollow waves. Chasing a swell to Indo as a kitesurfer has it’s challenges though. There isn’t a real wind forecast so you never really know what you’re going to get.
This year Keahi de Aboitiz, Moona Whyte and Matt Elsasser sat around waiting for the wind in front of their favorite wave while a big black ugly rain cloud came to visit everyday. As soon as the wind picked up, it started raining and the wind died.
In the end, they found new spots with no one around, and scored a couple sessions at their favorite place.
