What a great week of waves again in Indo. Great sessions reported all over Indo. Some of the best sessions went down at Speedies - G Land for a few hours on the high tide on Saturday. Another sick session was scored by the Bali local boyz in Sumbawa for the Rip Curl West Sumbawa Pro 2009. The boys scored contest and freesurfing sessions at Scars, Yo Yo’s and Super Suck. Bali Billabong rider Raditya Rondi put his stamp on his first ever Indonesian Surfing Championship tour event, beating last year’s winner fellow Rahtu Suargita. The Indo boys get to surf the best contest locations in the world. One can understand why they don't want to travel on the WQS circus.

Made and I snuck down to Lakey’s In Sumbawa and scored some killer sessions at the Peak and Periscopes for a couple of days. Plenty of surfers down there, so it’s pretty hard to get a free room. So if your heading down there book your rooms ahead.
Bali again had waves for everyone on both sides of the island and a mixed bag of winds keeping everyone happy. Outside corner at Ulu's fired for a few hours. There were a couple of small waves at Padang Padang, whilst all the Airport/Kuta reefs pumped most of the week. There were even some great waves on the banks at Legian for the kids.
Outlook for the week ahead. - The swells just keep coming. It should be huge by mid week for a few days. Looks like more Padang Padang action. Tradewinds blowing and more dreamy Indo sessions on the way.
Indo bagus!

North Sumatra: June 22-29, 2009

It was a pretty wild and wet week in North Sumatra.The rain and the shifting winds made things interesting for surfers in the area. It all changed for the better on Monday June 29 though as a brand new swell out of the SW poured in under sunny skies. The swell looks set to hold for a few days and then a second pulse is on the way. Stay posted.
