On Monday, a solid, long period swell slammed into Indonesia sending a shotgun blast of waves across the archipelago.

While the lay days carry on at the Kelly Slater Pro, the rest of the professional surf world is currently scattered throughout Indo. Here’s a collection of a few moments that graced our inbox.
