Surf Coaching & Power Surf Classes with Rodrigo Machado
We will kick start the Indo season aboard the Royal Fortuna Cruise, a traditional Phinisi schooner. We joined last year on one of their trip and were absolutely mesmerised by the quality and quantity of waves we found as well as the overall experience on the boat. We will be taking the same route, from the Eastern tip of Sumbawa and reach the Western tip of Sumba 10-days later.
Rodrigo Machado will be onboard, which means daily video coaching and power surf techniques. You will observe major improvements in your surfing throughout the the trip. Not to mention that we may encounter waves just to ourselves throughout the trip. If you are free around these dates and want to improve your surfing, this trip is not to be missed!

Uriel – Ocean Cinematographer
Originally from the French Bask country, Uriel has been spending his past 5-years in Indonesia, “chasing waves and light”. Traveling with the bare minimum you need to stay stoke: a camera, a surfboard and a yoga mat.
