Watch Gabby and Wilko tear into blue walls as they meander through Indo, in search of great waves, and good times.
World #1, Matt Wilkinson and World #3, Gabriel Medina along with Indonesian god, Garut Widiarta dusted off the spirit of #TheSearch and boarded a boat with no plan beyond getting tubed, laying some rail, playing some pong, and unwinding at night with a few beers and plenty of laughs in the 12th episode of #TheSearch - Tempat Boyum Ini.
With the World Surf League title race heating up, Wilkinson and Medina disappeared from the media spotlight in between J-Bay and Teahupoo to charge one of the worlds best lefts! The waves pumped and the boys let their surfing do the talking in some postcard sets in the tropical paradise. Widiarta was quick to point out that you don't have to be a world title contender to get some extended barrel time as well.

"With hopes of epic barrel time, OTIS Ambassador, Duran Barr, and his videographer, Blake Michel, chase the first south swell of the season down in Mexico." Otis Eyewear
"Eager to get summer rolling Duran and I saw the first south swell on the charts and decided it would be a good idea to head to Puerto for the beginning of the season and get on it before everyone else did. The idea we had in our head was that we were going to be packing bombs at Zicatella, but unfortunately we showed up to bad winds and had to work with what we got. We decided to reset the vibe clock in some time at the local point, La Punta. Surfing that wave was almost a joke though, because of the amount of people in the water and surf schools going on, it really made it frustrating to put a clip together. After a few days of surfing in the chaos we knew we had to get out of there and we caught a ride in the back of a truck down to Salina Cruz. Four hours later we found the perfect rights we were looking. We got one day of absolutely firing waves and finally got into the mindset we had come down for, packing some tubes. We knew we needed to head back to Puerto after Duran’s neck started craping from going backside for so many days straight. By the time we got back to Puerto the winds were mellow and were able to squeeze in one session before we headed back home." - Blake
