Indonesia has been a surfing rite of passage since the late 1970s, the Indian Ocean's answer to the Pacific mecca of Hawaii. Competition has been sporadic, however, thanks to a combination of political unrest and surf industry decline. From the Om Bali Pro in the '80s, to an incredible few years at Grajagan in Java, and a couple of brief dalliances in Bali this millennium, events have come and gone with the tide, but it seems now things have finally changed for the best.
What you see here is the result of the crew's incredible haul from two weeks in the tropics, starring our elite team of Carissa Moore, Kolohe Andino, Julian Wilson, Michel Bourez, Caroline Marks, Adriano de Souza and Jordy Smith. Don't just take our word for it, though. Hit play now and enjoy the best of Bali, and let's see if one of the squad can take a win as competition rolls on up the Bukit Peninsula to Uluwatu.
