Surf Report: 17th-28th September 2018

Weather: Great weather with clear skies during this part of September.

Swell: The forecast was looking pretty average (at best!) but its true to say that the forecast isnt always a reflection of reality, especially with a great captain like Pierre! 

Winds: Light & variable winds.

Sessions: A number of days were spent surfng babi island when the surf was at its smallest. The guests enjoyed super fun conditions, with no one around. Everyone super stoked. A small increase in swell gave the chance to surf small treasures - which was also super fun. The guests also enjoyed some of the regions other waves including the bay of plenty.

Crowd: The guests surfed alone 95% of the trip.

After thoughts: Once again super stoked guests depsite what "appeared" to be a poor surf forecast. Of course, it wasnt going to be the biggest trip of the season, but with overhead surf and zero crowds everyone returned to Sibolga very happy! Into next month, October has proved to be a pretty good month for surf (forecast below), check back again soon!
