“It takes a special sort of mindset to truly discover something” - Captain Martin Daly

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 28 February, 2018 - In the early 1980s Martin Daly boated throught the Mentawai Islands discovering perfect wave after perfect wave. At the time the only known surf in Indonesia was Bali, GLand and Nias.

He takes us back to one of his earliest discoveries, the breaks off the coast of the Mentawais, and brings Felicity Palmateer, Mikala Jones, Marlon Gerber, Tatiana Weston-Webb, Anthony Walsh, and Kai Lenny along for the ride.

Martin Daly was born in Australia but has spent his life searching for some of the best undiscovered surf spots in the most remote parts of the world. He now runs a world renown surf charter business in Indonesia, the Indies Trader fleet.
