Paradise is just down the road - and always has been. Ou's raid their piggy banks to get over to Indo, when you could just load up your tent and cabbie and get epic waves 300km east of PE. OK, so there is a lil bit more of a danger factor....sharks (on both land and sea) for one. But what's a trip without a lil adventure?
The Kei is a wave garden of note. PE locals like Jonty Hansford, Peter May, Richard Roth, Phil Weddall, Justin Erasmus and Andrew Honey used to make the pilgrimage regularly back in the day, and scored insane waves to themselves. Check out Jonty's shots here.
