A friend of mine hit Indo recently with a couple of new boards and a GoPro.
Spatziba: So I see you went to Indo for a little trip. You scored some serious waves. Good on ya! So how many times have you been?
Jakob Andersson: This is like the seventh time or something... Nothing beats it!
S: Does it always get this good?
JA: Not quite, but almost. It's really consistent but you have to know where to go and when.
S: What contraptions are you standing on?
JA: I brought three boards all by Nord. A 5'9" called the gravy, a 6'5" and a 6'8" rounded pin for the big days.
S: Only three boards for such a heavy place? Catch any nasty wipeouts?
JA: I was out on a big day and got smashed by a wave and hit the bottom. My leash got tangled in the reef and I couldn't surface til' the fucking leash snapped. I've got a giant scar on my back from that hold down.
S: Sick. Does Indo offer anything except surfing?
JA: Shit, yeah. The food is great, the people are so nice and the overall vibe is sooo good. It's an amazing place to be in.
S: So indo is obviously paradise. Does anything suck there?
JA: Hell yeah. The cops over there are so corrupt. All they want is your money. Oh yeah, it's impossible to not get sick from eating or drinking something dodgy, but I can live with that.
S: Any new trips on the horizon?
JA: I'll be spending Christmas in Berlin then off to Portugal and when summer comes around back to Indoland.
