THE SOUTH TO SIAN JOURNALS – CHAPTER 5
When International Director of Deus Surf, award winning photographer and hobbyist filmmaker Dustin Humphrey brought a hair-brained scheme to childhood mates, surf and bike enthusiasts Harrison Roach and Zye Norris, there were two things that they couldn’t comprehend: first, the good fortune that had graced them with such a life-changing opportunity and second, the sheer magnitude of the modern-day odyssey they were about to undertake. But without so much as a second thought, they offered their resounding assent. The idea was to journey by land and sea, bike, boat and board up almost the entire length of the Indonesian archipelago and, with a stable of boards, a pair of bikes and other bare essentials loaded into a decrepit Land Rover, their quest South to Sian began…
South To Sian: The Movie
We rolled out of Canggu straight off the back of a wild night at the Temple of Enthusiasm. Our brains bounced tenderly around the inside of our heads as we bounced jolting around the inside of the old Land Rover.
Next stop? The Bukit Peninsula.
No Indonesian surf trip is complete without a trip to the peninsula’s famously fantastic, long left-handers. And though the waves have been ridden for decades, they spill peel as well as anywhere.
On the beach Zye ran into one of our long time friends from Newcastle, Lewie Dunn. Lewie had quit his job and like us was in search of the kind of experiences and opportunities his hometown didn’t have on offer.
We traded off tubes with Lewie from midday through until the sun’s afternoon glow faded over Java.
