Here's a slick edit (and hairstyle) from Coolangatta's Sheldon Simkus, all filmed in Indonesia as the title suggests.

Song is 'Circles' by The Soft Moon if you're wondering.

shouldnt be promoting this guy. despite his ability, and young age, he is a total asshole at snapper - burns people regularly, but makes the biggest fuss if anyone goes near a wave he is paddling for, even if there is already someone on his inside

a lot do, but not everybody. its actually a clever myth perpetuated by the drop-in crew. makes it easier for them to justify their own habits ie "we are just doing what everyone else does, and seeing as we are locals, we have more right to do it" ... ive been surfing there on and off for a long time, and i make a point of being courteous.

not me, i've got my manners in. Mid winter swell had a fella paddle over on the outside
of me, put his left hand on my right shoulder, pushed me down & stole the wave. Classic!
That's assault!!!! Ha Ha
