When you think of the very finest surf spots on the planet, Lagundri Bay surely ranks very highly among them.
And while images of the iconic righthander have been sending surfers to the Indonesian archipelago ever since its discovery in 1975, the earthquake in 2005 is said to have made the wave even hollower and more sucky by raising he reef, updating the quality of the wave in tune with 21st century tuberiding performance standards.
When a perfect swell was headed towards the mythical spot, France-based photographer Timo Jarvinen headed straight there with surfers Leo Fioravanti, Aritz Aranburu, Nic von Rupp and Indar Unanue.
And if the resulting images don’t have you planning an Indo mission in the very near future, the only plausible explanation is that you’re already there.
