Rags Right, The Hole, Macaronis & Greenbush; These are a few of our favourite things:

With the end of an awesome month of July filled with solid swells, there was a big expectation on how August swells would develop.

In the first half of the month, Moon Palikir departed Padang with one good swell forecast. This ended up producing a trifecta of swells, which made our clients stoked to surf epic and clean conditions from day one to the completion of their trip 12 days later.

Good winds with predominant light trades meant the left handers worked nicely with offshore winds and almost no one around, unlike what is expected for the month of August.

We surfed The Hole, Hideaways, Greenbush and Macaronis in great conditions and scored a lucky day at Lances Right, fulfilling the dreams of some guests along the way!

In the second half of August, we departed once again with stoked World Surfaris guests. Lance's Right was solid and only a few guys in the lineup, which allowed our guests to have an amazing session with just our boat on it.

We later sailed south where we spent most of our trip without seeing another boat. We surfed Rags Right, The Hole and some secret spots and ended the last day of waves with perfect 4-5 foot Greenbush, a great way to end the trip.

We now move into the shoulder season after an impressive peak season. The Coastalwatch long range forecast looks promising with two strong SSW groundswells right in the first few weeks of the month.

World Surfaris have the best late season surf trips to Indonesia available right now, so get out of town and get into some epic waves. Check out the Indo deals here
