How about scoring not one XL swell but two XL swells in a row? That’s what the Knell group did on their extended 14 day charter. They ended up scoring what Surfline are calling the biggest swell on record. And Captain Manto agrees saying he’s never seen it that big in his 25+ years out at the island. Two big back to back swells is always special so thank you to our second group of Californians on the boat for the year. If you guys are this lucky come back any time!
This trip had it all. It started with the Bali volcano going off and stranding 2 guests on the day of departure (don’t worry we got them to the boat). Then small swell. Onshores/cross shores/off shores. Light winds and strong winds. Before it all came together for some beautiful days of waves at the end. This trip is what it's all about, a bunch of mates, on a boat, many of them first timers on a boat and to Indo, getting to hang out and experience a true Indo boat trip. Thanks to the Californian and Sydney boys for a great trip and special thanks to Luke and Chris for the photos.
It happens sometimes you know. You get waves and then it tapers off. Even in Indo, Huey the surf god can't always provide swell for a whole trip. So what do you do? How about drink beers, fish, hang out with your mates and have a good time anyway. That’s what Shane Conwell’s boys did on their trip. And maybe just maybe, there was a rumour that when it did go flat, they cut the trip short by one night and headed back to Jakarta for a big night out….
