June 5, 2017 a day to remember.

With the best swell of the Indonesian season looming I decided Aloita Resort was a good place to post up.
I arrived the day before the swell filled in properly, the evening of Sunday the 4th of June had some very fun waves up the beach. The next morning was truly amazing, after working at Aloita for the past three years I can confidently say that the solid SSW (207deg) swell was one of the best I have ever seen hit Telescopes.
The wind was a perfect light SE all day, we had 2 long sessions with the afternoon just as good if not slightly bigger on the higher tide.
A few "best waves of my life" quotes were heard from the guests.
The next few days the swell slowly dropped but conditions continued to produce some excellent quality surf.
The Indonesian season has been very good so far this year, and the run of consistent swell is set to continue......The Indonesian season has been very good so far this year, and the run of consistent swell is set to continue......
