This was the first tow in.

There were only four. This vid covers about a quarter of the first ride.

I think he is saying it is. A little funny in the tenses, but I'm assuming that is because his first language is Russian. Cranked will be able to tell us.

“This morning a bomb fell on Uluwatu, the guys in the collaboration decided to weaken on the big waves: the Russian bigwaver Andrey Ovchinnikov @dolphinsurfandrei and the Brazilian Eloy Lorenzo @eloylorenzojunior ,arranged a powerful tau-surfing (dispersed each other on the jet) on the spot, well, I managed to shoot a few shots of that day on camera. Support the guys 👍 it was the day that will remain in the history of this spot, and the Russian bigwave riding 💪Respect guys, you're have really big balls...all photography @alexander_vasiliev_”

Crazy! The other pics look like it. Just that the dude is wearing a full steamer.

I'm not sure. That vid I just posted was the first tow in of the four I'm pretty sure.
I was confused about the tow in this morning as it seemed to be different surfers to me at the time. So they swapped. I don't recall a wetsuit, but its so far out to sea its not impossible... for float and protection?

OK, thanks buddy. Its all clear now. That was the first of the four tow ins. He's not wearing a wetsuit in the vid. It was shot by Joc who I spoke to for a while at about 6am that morning.

Is the still photoshoped?

I spoke to a few other people, they were calling it 30' on the sets, 35' on some rarer ones. I'd agree with that.

Hey cranky, you're our Realsurf man on the ground here.
Pause the swellnet vid at 1:51 when the bloke is standing upright and you can quite clearly work out that it's a 30 foot (actual feet) wave. Surely your nothing-but-the-whole-measured-truth approach means you don't have to 'call' it and 'opinions' don't come into it. Or have you now started using a different scale?

Any reason the big wave crew that just hit Cloudbreak last month didnt show up to Indo for this? Not hyped enough?
