Mason Ho’s Full-Length Indo Highlight Reel

Why bring boards to Bali, when some of the world’s best whips get built at …Lost Indonesia.

Yesterday the No Contest crew spent the day on the cliff at the Uluwatu Surf Villas, hanging with Ian Crane, Rizal Tanjung, Jack Freestone, and a small posse, with Mason Ho playing host from the pool on his waterfront pad. 

Mason’s been coming to Bali for years, and on certain long stays, including the one that resulted in the wildly entertaining full-length above, arrived boardless but not worried at all: why lug a coffin bag through customs at Denpasar, and risk the per-board import tax so many cop upon arrival in that often crooked country? You can get some of the best surfboards in the world built right in Bali! 

…Lost Indonesia is one of the finest foam and fiberglass factories on the planet, the product of Pete Mathews of White Monkey Surf Shop‘s decades of experience, and his close working relationship with Matt “Mayhem” Biolos, who has absolutely zero tolerance for anything short of perfection when it comes to his boards being produced internationally. While a lot of international surfboard brands suffer from the same crappy near-counterfeit productions as clothing brands do in Indonesia, Pete imports the best Australian materials, and works with his Mayhem-approved team to ensure the integrity of the …Lost brand here in Bali.

Just like in Europe, where Matt works with the remarkably disciplined and devoted dudes at PUKAS, in Indo Matt trusts Pete with the brand he’s worked so very hard to build into a high-performance empire. And the relationship has not only yielded exceptional production of Matt’s standard models, but also a few of …Lost’s most beloved outlines, including the Quiver Killer. 

For Temple of the Lost Stone—which we serialized last year, but which just got released as a proper full-length today—Pete told Mason to just get here, leave his quiver at home. Mace admitted he was more than skeptical of flying halfway around the world without any of his most trusted steeds in tow, but finally relented. You can watch Mace put his Indo Quiver—a Indo Driver, Trouble Shooter, Voodoo Child, Baby Buggy, Quiver Killer, and Puddle Jumper Round Pin—through its paces in the 40+-minute banger above, and if you’re headed to Bali for the Keramas event, you can order your custom ...Lost, here.
