Stevie O’Hara and Buck Rowley over at my old stomping ground, Pioneers Boardshop, have gotten word from Brian Nevins who’s just spent a couple weeks in indo scoring crazy waves and photos.

“Just getting back to Singapore and taking in some reflection time from the past couple weeks cruising around Indo. What a trip. I can’t remember ever seeing waves this good, here… or anywhere. Cruising around with Brad Gerlach and the Marcotti clan walking into 12 straight days of perfect waves… Hope all is well.”
