Doing time for Yoni Klein - video

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

Don't worry, your knowledge of surf trivia ain't slipping if you've never heard of Yoni Klein. I'd never heard of him either, but the good word is he's a doctor from Tel Aviv who just happens to surf alright, as you'll see.

Yoni spent a few weeks at Kandui recently and intercepted a number of good swells. The following clip makes for great viewing with Yoni sitting deep, taking off late, and cooly manhandling some sketchy sections.

Gary hears ya, Sprouty.

For your next holiday, why not get all up in Gary?
Gary, Indiana.
Nestled at the tip of Lake Michigan, the best spot for scoring a facey anywhere on the great lakes, Gary's such a delight that once you've come once, you're certain to want to come again.

He must have studied medicine near a decent break.
You don't learn to surf like that from the wind swell slop in Israel.
He surfs great tho.

Anyone notice the wave at 58 seconds is the same footage as a wave in the Maldives 2017 high lights(31 October) footage at a round 1.08 seconds. So is some of the Maldives footage bull shit? Can't believe a travel company would try and deceive us?
