Recently our mates & local lords Taj Richmond, Jhamil Coorey and Rory Twomey hit the lesser known Indonesian island of Sumbawa for some good times.
Far less developed and quite a bit more conservative then neighbouring Bali and Lombok, Sumbawa is a mismatched terrain of volcanic ridges, terraced rice paddies and vast, dry ranges bordered by undefiled beaches featuring flawless surf breaks. These key ingredients make it an ideal destination for those seeking a relaxed sun & surf trip: you won’t find a bunch of sweaty Aussies grinding on each other, crawling the streets at all hours heckling the locals.
The boys explored the unique island oasis with nothing but boards, bikes and cameras in hand, visiting the small villages and making friends with the locals.
View the clip by Rory Twomey below for a slice of Sumbawa.
