I took a trip out to Macaronis in the Mentawai islands early November and got really lucky with some decent swell so late in the season and minimal crowds. The wave delivered frequent 4-5 foot sets that threw perfect barrels and fun walls all the way down the reef. I’m sure I don’t have to […]

Tom here signing on for an overdue elective report, currently basking in the stoke of what was an amazing 6 week trip. Outside the window it’s pissing it down and 11 degrees (but a big Atlantic swell forecast this weekend so its not all bad).
Short video of my Indonesia/medical elective trip May-Aug 2014. Filmed in Bali, Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Ceningan, G-Land (g-landsurfcamp.com/ –> best camp on the point) and the Mentawai islands. I stayed at a surfcamp called Matungou in the northern Mentawai islands (matungou.com) – highly recommend going there! All filmed with my gopro3+ black and a few sequence shots from DSLRs.

Greetings from the jungle It has been so good being back, I have now had 7 days of the best ground hog day in the world: eat, surf, eat, surf, eat, repeat! The waves have been consistently good, a couple of bigger days, but nothing massive and the crowd factor low and friendly. In essence […]

I have just finished a great couple of weeks at Macaronis Surf Resort. This was my second placement as a SurfingDoc, having done a stint at G Land last year. My beautiful goofy footed wife Kristen and son and daughter Angus and Ivy were my crew again this year. First of all I gotta say […]
Hey everyone! Angry Angus here (I’m not actually that angry…). I arrived a few days ago out at Raymond’s camp and was welcomed by a pumping swell. I came out with two friends from NZ, Nick and Brad – just three of us on the boat. Four guys left and three of us arrived and […]
