The great Indo revival is upon us! The world's surfers are descending on everyone's favourite archipelago and we'll bring you all the action, interviews and more as it happens. Check it here.
Last week, the great Indo revival got cooking – Nias, home to one of the world's most flawless waves at Lagundri Bay is open for business, and a mix of frothing super groms took over for a few days last week.
Yeah, the world's slowly converging on Indonesia, especially now with a few weeks of magic on the cards. Indo was under a strict lockdown and this is now the first season the country's returning to normality. So let the great Indo revival of 2022 commence!
Live cam: We've got one, at Nias!
And for these kids, a little island off the western coast of Sumatra was ground zero for a few days of catching up with pals, scoring some properly fun and somewhat critical waves – even if it meant 100 or so surfers confined to one peak – while stoking the travel fire once again.
On the ground is lensperson Federico Vanno, long-time MSW contributor and prolific snapper of in-the-barrel gold. But more so, Fede's got a keen eye for getting those moments in between, too. And that's what we tasked him with here, to show the waves and the people. Because what says 'welcome home, surfing' more than a bunch of grommies having the time of their lives?
They may have been in town for the Nias Pro, but it is the surrounds, the out-of-the-rash-vest happenings where the real action went down. Take Ziggy Aloha Mackenzie for example. Sick name aside, check this 14-year-old wonder grom pulling into one of the bombs of the past few days, her expression saying it all.
As more and more swell pours into Indo across the next few days, weeks, months, we'll be bringing you it all. Stay tuned.
