Indonesia’s climate is split into two distinct seasons– wet and dry. During the wet season, the prevailing wind is onshore for many of the classic Indonesian setups, including Bali’s most well known lineups around Kuta, Uluwatu, and Padang Padang. This lasts from November until March, at which point the dry season sees the winds flip around from the east. It’s now April, which means the switch in seasons has just occurred, lifting the gates on the endless list of waves which bask in the dry season winds.
Here one of Kuta Beach’s crowned princes, Lee Wilson, a half-aussie born and bred in Indonesian takes on the first two swells of the season. The clip starts with some small-wave flare at home in Bali then hops over to Sumbawa and Sumatra.
