It’s around this time of year that a good percentage of Aussie surfers begin getting itchy feet. No we’re not talking about a fungal infection from dirty wax, but rather the maddening bite of the travel bug. As Winter slowly rolls in we look north to Indo and start planning our escape. The lure of tropical tubes and Bintangs under Indonesian sunsets too much to bear.

To further entice, we’ve decided to run a weekly visual report on what the waves are doing in the Telo Islands. Tracks photog Simon ‘Swilly’ Williams is holed up a Resort Latitude zero for the winter and every week he’ll be stuffing a scribbled report and a USB stick full of images in a bottle and tossing them into the Pacific to ride the currents all the way to the Tracks office.

This Week’s Report:

With light winds and a small fun swell running we managed to score waves at a variety of spots in the three-four foot range. 

The beautiful Telo weather made the whole experience so much fun. This joint is paradise!

The swell Guru is telling us that the end of the week will be soild. Stay tuned surf fans. Huey is coming.
