If I was going to indo tomorrow, I wouldn't be going with anything flat.
I surfed a DHD 6'2 sweet spot which had the most rocker out of any of my boards. I wasted a fair bit of time on my other flatter boards. I was on a single fin tangent at the time and had just taken custody of a 6'8. I had a 6'2 Mini merk in the bag too which I didn't use the whole trip.

I'd be taking the following boards:
6'0 PCC shorty for the really small days
6'0 slater designs Gamma for the waist to head high
6'2 sweet spot 2.0 for anything bigger than head high.

Very anorexic Jet.

If I'm paying big money I'd want waves, lots of them so for for me it'd be a 7' Zot, 7'4 and 8' Nuggets

i've taken the prevent meds, and I've had malaria.

from my experience, the prevent meds were worse than the actual malaria. i was nauseous, dizzy and felt like i had a defcon 5 hangover from the meds. i didn't feel like surfing at all.

with malaria; about a month after i got back home from west java i got properly ill – splitting headache, lethargy, fever etc ... and they did blood tests and i was positive.

but shit. the H1N2 flu virus i got in tassie made malaria look like a little sneezing fit. malaria lasted not even a week i don't think, the H1N2 lasted 3 months and i had moments where i would have shot myself in the head if i had a 9mm handy.

My Dad caught Malaria during WW2 in New Guinea or Sarawak.
For the rest of his life he suffered recurrences every couple of years.

yeah WW2 being the operative word here. modern meds after you contract malaria and get them into you as the first symptoms appear, kill it dead, no repeats or lapses.
