From Bali to Sumbawa. One year later, Austin Mullen is back with his camera gear, two mates and nine surfboards, ready for his second surf-trip throughout Indonesia.
On the menu: Sumbawa, Nias, Northern Sumatra, Banyak islands and finally the Mentawai islands with some surprises along the way. Here is the first episode of a 3-months Indo surf-trip just starting now.
Although rightfully renowned as being the surf mecca of the world, Bali is a bit overwhelming for me. The hustle and bustle of the city have slowly made its way down the Bukit Peninsula, an area I once remembered as being an idyllic paradise when I first travelled there many years ago. Although it is still an area that should be on all surfers bucket lists, don’t expect to find empty lineups anymore. That era is long gone.
Next Stop: Lakey Peak. Stay tuned!
