Surfing Indonesia for Lonely Planet
A link to an article I was asked to write for the Lonely Planet website on surfing in Indonesia. This was written last week on a plane on the way home from two fantastic months on the Indonesian islands of Java and Sumatra. The two pictures are of One Palm Point on Panatain island off West Java. It is probably the most ridiculous, and dangerous, wave I have ever surfed.
