While Australian surfers are stuck in the Land Down Under, with no escape from winter's chill, the Americans are free to enjoy the warm-water delights of Indo. Serial tube-hunter Nate 'Mcnasty' Behl has recently been plundering the Ments and relishing the fact that the crowds are at a historical low. "I flew over from Florida last month, did the quarantine and then jumped over to a pretty empty Mentawai," explains Nate. "Pretty crazy time to see the middle of the Indian Ocean season this empty.  Finally, a solid swell just arriving and I hope to put out footage as we get it this year."  

Half your luck buddy. 

Watch and weep.
