Apparently, There Are Only Two Boards You Need In Indonesia
Ryuki Waida and Kian Martin provide the pudding.
A shortboard and a step-up will get you through 95% of surf sessions in Indonesia.
On (very) rare occasions, the waves are big or small enough to justify something outside of that spectrum, but those days are few and far between. That’s why brands that build boards out of Indo, like Channel Islands for instance, put so much energy into perfecting these two classes of surf craft.
CI recently came out with its ideal two-board quiver for Indo, which are collqiually referred to as The Happies. This includes the Two Happy, which the second gen of the Reynolds-inspired performance board The Happy, and The Happy Traveler, which is a step-up designed to get in early, drive through tubes, but also provide plenty of feel on the face.
After watching Ryuki Waida and Kian Martin above, we’ll let you decide if these boards would suit your Indonesian needs.
