The unsettled conditions of the last few days have been a blessing in disguise, giving us the opportunity to utilise our position right in the middle of the Telo’s most prolific wave zone and move fast in and around the wind shifts, scoring at a number of different breaks. Le- Ba, Max’s Left and School Yards have all been on the menu, and sizes from fun 2 feet to testing 7 feet has been the fare. Our standard mode of operation this trip has been to greet the morning wind with a smile and get stuck into breakfast, and most of the time as we have stepped off the lawn into the boat, the morning ruffle has passed.
This group have been going pretty hard most mornings with long sessions and then a sneaky kip before the arvo hit-out and the “Booze Cruise” home. Inevitably, this has led to a bit of recreational cards and beer pong and lots of claiming rights and laughs. We threw in a visit down to the main town area on Telo for a bit of scooter work and a look at life in a ‘Classic Indonesian Kampung’.
The forecast is showing a dip so we will get a chance to hit the swell magnets before the predicted rise that seems to alway be around the corner in North Sumatra.
