THE INDIAN OCEAN ISSUE
We thought it would be fun to dedicate an entire issue to an ocean, and given the stellar year that many Indian Ocean surf zones enjoyed in 2014, it seemed only fitting to send an 120 page love-letter to the green queen.
Here’s a few things we learned.
Up nor’west WA there’s a rock well below the high tide line that seeps drinkable freshwater at low tide.
There’s no such thing as an easy surf trip in Pakistan. Or Iran for that matter.
Matsya, the great Hindu God, was the first tow-in surfer.
Soon as a time machine is invented, we’re going back to The Bluff for the winter of 2000. You’ll see what we mean when we meet up there.
It IS possible to get to Desert Point from Kuta on a small hire scooter, but only just.
Few things are more confronting than coming round the corner on your Ments trip and meeting a stricken asylum seeker boat.
27.7 was the average number of waves ridden per day on an Indo charter we tracked.
There are more local female grom chargers at The Bluff than there are fellas.
Rowing across the Indian Ocean really takes it out of you.
Anyway (and yes we know we say this every time) it’s a ripper of an issue and it’s out now… Terimah Kasih!
