A Three Minute Reminder That Indonesia’s Dry Season Draws Nearer Every Day
Watch Bohdie Williams’ Sumatran catharsis.
The Northern Rivers isn’t the kindest place for goofy footers, unless your name starts with C and ends with -onnor O’Lary.
It’s a lot of backside turn after backside turn after backside turn, a repetitious metronome which — despite being enjoyable for a session, or two, or three — can get quite boring for those with an aptitude for lefts.
20-year old Bohdie Williams moved to Ballina from Victoria two years ago, and has a backhand worthy of every canvas in the Northern New South Wales region. Yet, even he craves the frontside catharsis of a few weeks in Indonesia. The above clip was filmed in October, amid a frighteningly flat Australia spring.
“We actually got really bad winds, we had southerly winds, so we had to drive two hours to the north of the island every day to try and get waves,” he recalls. “It was pretty empty and unknown up there.”
“I just finished a pretty big comp season. I hadn’t been doing too well, so I kind of just went over there to switch off. I hadn’t even planned on filming, it just ended up turning into that.”
According to Bodhie, the music was inspired by the Snapt movies, and it serves to evoke a dreamlike haze over clips from a less blown-out part of Indonesia.
