With travel budgets being cut by sponsors left, right and centre, pros have just got to make do with what they’ve got and for Indar that’s meant a lot less travel lately, or at least fewer long haul flights to exotic far-flung destinations. Hence the idea of spotting a big winter low in the Mediterranean and chasing it.
His dad having moved to the island of Formentera in the Balearics when he was a kid, Indar said he’d grown up spending his summers out there but surfing had always been a strictly North Atlantic affair. Zarautz, home to much of Spain’s hotbed of surfing talent, is where he learnt to shred as a teenager and as his surfing took off there were less time to return to the Med. Until one day an old portrait of him as a boy hanging from his bedroom wall set of a sudden desire to return to his childhood holiday destination and rediscover it from a whole new perspective.
