From Africa to Indonesia- video

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

Here's Jonathon Gubbins in a FOMO-inducing clip filmed at some of the best lefts in the world. In many ways the waves show contrast against the other: sand vs reef; cold vs warm, yet fundamentally they're all similar being up tempo hollow lefts that require finely tuned speed control to get the best of them. And that's something Jono does with aplomb.

Shit, I could be way wrong, but the last wave starting at 2.40 I thought was Deserts?

Hence the title, Africa to Indonesia...I believe you are correct.
