The latest episode from Nic Von Rupp and a look back at a pumping Nias session. 6-8ft and surfing from dawn to dusk with friends Leonardo Fioravanti and Aritz Aranburu. The dusk session is the highlight with beautifully airbrushed waves in fading light.

If you want to skip straight to the action go to 1:45.

Bipola the problem isn't being young again mate, its being able to get out of Australia, 25 or 55.

A couple of those beauties would make your year. That Leo F standing tall tube was WOTD I reckon.

Yep....I'm calling bullshit on a 12 hour sesh.

Maybe a boat was moored off to the side where the priveleged few could sit it out in some shade for a while, have a feed/drink and put more sunscreen on.

Had a few 4-5 hour surfs in Indo when I was young & bulletproof and remember being completely fucked and dehydrated afterwards.

Maybe he had one of these:

"Aqua Tongue wetsuits have built-in hydration packs so that surfers and enthusiasts for other water sports don't need to come in from the ocean to rehydrate."

I wouldn't mind one.

Does this guy love tubes or himself more? I really don't know. Watch from 2min - 6 min to avoid the verbal fellatio he dribbles.

Even though I've never been to Indo, I can picture it.

Sounds so good Mick.

Surfed Nias decades ago at half that size and copped an absolute drilling when straightened out ! That wave has a power well beyond anything I have experienced in OZ. Hats off to the chargers. Pull in or get drilled. An absolute cracking wave and so consistent.
