Maui Boys Derek Escalera, Rafael Cursino and locals score some epic Nias barrels. A multitude of different angles showing Nias in all it’s glory.
Nias woke up doing what it’s known for. Big and heavyRafael Cursino
“This was the first big swell of the year since last september when Benjamin Sanches and Diego Santos scored Lagundri Bay. Tuesday May 13th, Nias woke up doing what its known for. Big and heavy 6ft with a couple of 8 footers double up Barrels. There were epic waves all day, even with the light onshore wind midday. The swell lasted for 3 days, everyone got so barrelled along with the locals. When the swell dropped we organised a beach clean up with Shinishi Nakamura, ambassador of Surfing For Life Foundation in Japan and Dollin Wau, a well known Local. We provided free books and pens for all the kids that helped with the beach clean up. Keep Nias Clean.”
