Stormrider Guide Indonesia and the Indian Ocean0 comments
The Stormrider Surf Guide Indonesia and the Indian Ocean is the latest in the high quality surf travel guide range compiled by Low Pressure (www.lowpressure.co.uk). The same successful format is continued, and still works as well as it has done since the first guide.
The guide has a useful introduction, and highlights the different surf zones that are covered. The meteorology and Oceanography of the regions is outlined, describing the source of swell, currents and tides, water temperatures and wind. Next up is the ocean environment and local surf culture.
The rest of the guide is split into the main regions, which are broken down into smaller regions and their individual surf spots. The regions covered in this guide include Madagascar, Maldives, Bay of Bengal, Sumatra, Java, Bali and Nusa Tenggara. Each of the main regions has an informative overview and features a number of outstanding waves to look out for. The regions are then broken down into more in depth sections which contain individual surf spot details.
The guide uses the traditional spot description icons with added spot size. The surf statistics section shows the essential information to help plan a surf trip for the optimum surf season. The travel information section is particularly useful, offering information on how to get there, getting around, lodging and food, weather, nature and culture, hazards and hassles, and handy hints.
This guide really fires up the imagination and gets you thinking about planning the next trip. The information contained throughout the guide is up to date, helpful and relevant. As you would expect, the guide is packed full of great photos of epic waves. You will not be disappointed with the latest addition to the Stormrider range.
