Fithteen-year-old Koldo Illumbe is half-Basque and half-Balinese. With Mundaka and Uluwatu at his dual-doorsteps (not to mention Desert Point a mere island-hop away) it doesn’t take a rocket surgeon to compute how the kid got so comfy in reeling, left-hand tubes. Blending style and performance. The kid’s upright posture in underground cylinders is pure elegance. Here’s a little something from the recent Indonesian monsoon season, searching for conditions that shine just a couple times of the year.
