Team Rider Neal Gent tears it up in Sumbawa

If you haven\’t heard of it check out the Space Monkey\’s II, video for the quality of the waves!! You know you\’re on a winner when you turn up and it\’s 8m weather, 30 degrees (in and out the water), and 6 metre swells! You can choose from mental drops and even barrels at Lakey Pipe, fine tuning your maxed out bottom turn at Lakey Peak, or 10 turns a wave down the line at Nunga\’s… If that\’s not enough then at the end of the day the local lads are waiting to catch your kite then give you a lift back upwind on their mopeds (for a small fee!).
Check out any of those names on a surfing website and you\’ll see the quality of the place! Didn\’t see a twintip anywhere, and don\’t think anyone did a jump (that i saw unless you count aerials!) It\’s a wave riding dream! Needless to say the surf is stunning every morning, and while i was there, the wind came up like clockwork at around 10.30. Definately heading back there next year, and anyone who likes kiteing in insane waves and doesn\’t mind risking a few reef cuts then go check it out!!
