Surfers Nic Von Rupp and Maxime Huscenot rip in Sumbawa

Screen-Shot-2013-07-09-at-1.31.43-PM

The Lakey Peak area of Sumbawa doesn’t get the same level of hype and media exposure as other places in Indonesia such as Bali, the Mentawais, and Desert Point, but it consistently produces a wide variety of great waves. Nic von Rupp and Maxime Huscenot, two of Europe’s best surfers, recently went there and just released this edit of themselves ripping some seriously fun-looking surf. They aren’t the most well-known pros in the world, but when unleashed in high performance waves they show just how well rounded they are. Nic is an ethnic German who grew up in Portugal, and Maxime is from Reunion Island, but he spends a lot of time in France. Between them they fluently speak five or six languages. The video is also unique because it’s in English with Portuguese subtitles.
