5'6" Tomo Cymatic.
6'1" Lost Sabotaj (brand new, never ridden)
6'3' MC Protow.

thats the final pick based on the forey.
Swellnet Ments forecast
This week and next (Sep 12 - 21):
Ments: We should be seeing some new acute S'ly swell building across the region today and reaching 4-5ft+ across south magnets, easing back a little through tomorrow.

The larger S/SW groundswell due later week across Bali will arrive through Thursday afternoon and likely reach 6ft+ by dark, with Friday morning possibly seeing the odd 8ft set at magnets ahead of an easing trend into the afternoon, smaller Saturday and early Sunday.

Winds will pick up again from the SE-S/SE becoming gusty through the coming period limiting the best waves to more protected spots, away from the bulk of the incoming swells.

Reinforcing S'ly swell energy for Sunday doesn't look to offer much size, with sets to 4-5ft out of the south, easing back through Monday and Tuesday.

The larger swell on the cards for mid-week will be generated fairly favourably in our southern swell window and should produce easy 6-8ft waves, but we'll review this Wednesday.


Coastalwatch Indo forecast for next couple weeks -
September is often a great month to be surfing across Indonesia – and this year presents a good case in point. In what’s been a fairly extreme season with respect to surf highs and lows, the coming week or two delivers consistently sizeable surf under light winds; for the most part ranging anywhere from 3 to 8ft across the major breaks for many days to come. As discussed in more detail below, this sustained run of surf originates from Indonesia’s south swell window – which has been highly active throughout early September. This activity looks like culminating in a larger, winter-scale event mid-next week, in all likelihood capping off an excellent first half of September with large surf in the 6 to 10ft range.

6'3" for 8ft Ments?

I don't see anything like an 8ft swell on the Indian Ocean charts I'm looking at.

those S swells look to peter out.

maybe 4-6ft on that wed swell he's talking about.

think that 6'3' would handle that. Thats what it was made for.

Any surf shop should carry those or Webby or use futures ones as NC said.

Got my travel insurance sorted, now just got to write this 4 thousand word feature.

This Sabotaj is very much a Ghost homage. Much chunkier though. Looks like it will suit a quad setup more than Ghost.

Now can you tell every other cunt who goes o/s to do the same. I’m sick of teary gofundme stories looking for $100k because some tool crashed their scooter.

Most, if not all insurance policies don’t cover you for scooter accidents unless you have a bike license here. A lot of cunts don’t know that. Hence the endless go fund me campaigns.

You taking the hood, Steve?
