The Indian Ocean has been bombarded with swell after swell throughout June and July. The entire Indonesian archipelago and the Maldives have enjoyed a season that will go down in history as one of the best. July was proclaimed "Best ever" by so many Indo water-people it is impossible to argue. Big Wednesday July 25
In my 30 plus years as a surf scribe for various Australian surf magazines and websites, I would have to say the winter of 2018 on the East Coast of Australia ranks in the worst 5 that i have ever witnessed. Hey, its not all bad, the weather has been the warmest ever, the water quite warm until recent weeks, wind offs
I take off behind the peak on a slabbing right for the best barrel of the trip. As I fly out into the channel, Aku is laughing so hard because he didn't get a single photo of the good wave. Thankfully all the photos of the average waves look pretty good! Back to plantation for a cruisy arvo surf out the front at Rubio.
The largest swell in a decade just swept through the Indonesian archipelago and the Banyaks received it's fair share. Our friends on The Dream measured a max swell of 19 second, 9 foot, SSW, rip through the Banyaks. Olivier shared his experience with us: "On Day 1, three breaks were on fire! 3 to 6 foot super clean.

It’s always a great feeling knowing a solid swell is on the way when you have booked a boat trip to the Mentawai , scoring double overhead Lances right on day one is a different story! The Perfect Wave and Oasis Surf Charters recently hosted Anthony Walsh
Ok, measuring the length of a wave is a bit inconsequential, especially since the WSL hasn’t taken into account the length of the ride in its rating criteria for a very long time. Nevertheless, Eloy Lorenzo’s ride at Uluwatu is next level! Locals claim it’s among the longest waves ever surfed at Uluwatu. Some claim a tow-in doesn’t count, but tow-in…
The boat crew were awesome, even joining in with us on our impromptu acoustic jams. Bob McTavish is a most gracious host: always quick with a compelling story and his rendition of the Gillian Welch song “Miss Ohio” was a real treasure. Everyone chipped in on jam nights with the craziest mix of songs.

A great bunch of people sharing good vibes on the high sea- life doesn't get better than this! Yeeeeew!!
