Welcome to Vans Stab High Indonesia (Round 2), presented by Monster Energy.
Anything you might want to do on a surfboard, you can do at Lakey Peak. Cupped-out rights with perfect air wind, drawn out, steep lefts, with tubes going both ways. Want to lean into a big ol’ turn? Go right ahead. Want to get a vision? Slam the brakes.
And, of course, the air section will let you do whatever it is you please.
The last part is important — because after all, it is an air comp.
This is the fifth edition of Vans Stab High, presented by Monster Energy. We’ve been to Waco twice, then to the Mentawaiis, then Costa Rica, and now here. This year’s surfers are:
Luke Swanson, Chippa Wilson, (Past Stab High Winner), Dion Agius, Eric Geiselman, Mikey February, Eli Beukes, Koldo Ilumbe, Micky Clarke, Shane Sykes, Masato Yukawa, Shaun Manners, Noa Deane (Past Stab HIgh Winner), Matt Meola (Past Stab High Winner), Robbie McCormick, Ian Crane (Past Stab High Winner), Erwin Bliss, Dakoda Walters, Noah Beschen, Mateus Herdy, Bronson Meydi, Baja Koala, Letty Mortenson, Rajo Barrel, Reef Heazlewood, Hughie Vaughan, Brad Flora, Noah Hill, Ompu Anwar (local wildcard).
Bella Kenworthy, Caity Simmers, Sierra Kerr, Quincy Symonds, Maddie Stanton, Isi Campbell, Bella Nalu, Eden Walla.
You’ll be able to watch it in four episodes, dropping weekly starting October 24 on Stab Premium and October 27th on YouTube.
Below is a photo gallery from the first few days. Keep an eye on the Stab High Instagram for a drip feed of what’s cooking.
Why? Because a proper swell has arrived. The ramps could fairly be described as mega.
