He set out to search for uncrowded waves on epic adventure through a country steeped in mysticism and rich with human stories.

In this episode, he spends a month in wild and mountainous West Sumbawa, hoping to score one of Indo’s premier waves, and learning more of the ex-pats who live colourful lives out there on the fringes of society.
