Lodge Surf Reports

THE 79-DAY ITCH

July 5, 2019

On Sunday, 24th March earlier this year, departing guest Olivier gives Pinnacles staff a bro-hug goodbye, walks across the tarmac and climbs aboard the waiting charter flight. Soon the Cessna Grand Caravan is a vanishing speck in the bright blue Sumatran sky. Ollie’s heading home. Fast forward exactly 79 days and that very same plane…

208 Degrees…

July 2, 2019

Swell of the year (so far) greeted this epic guest group. So let’s not dick around. Meet Team Telo! Brett “The Captain” Cooper. Cronulla NSW. Coops’ 5th visit and he makes the calls round these parts (even insisted the title for this report be 208 degrees – if you know, you know). Good thing he’s…

THE INTERNATIONALISTS

July 2, 2019

Pinnacles North Telo was home to a tight-knit bunch of fabulous and high-achieving humans recently. Let’s meet this crew, who’ve converged from all over! Gary Wnorowski, New Jersey. The organiser of the trip who got the whole crew hyped to come to Pinnacles. Gaz – a laboratory director – not only organised the trip, he…

Breathing Space

June 25, 2019

A quiet trip this one – with just four guests – and it was delightful. Without further ado, meet… Joe and Deb Evans. Perth, WA. This is Joe’s fifth trip and Deb’s third, and they are the two nicest humans you will ever come across. Joe will go for any wave he’s called into, no…

Swell-o-rama

June 11, 2019

Solid trip this one, with the exception of one session at three-foot E.R, the swell didn’t dip below four feet the whole time… The boys even had to take a breather on day seven due to total surf exhaustion (and if it wasn’t for morning yoga some of the crew’s arms might have fallen off…).…

THE BOYS ARE BACK

June 11, 2019

Sorry for the delay in Telo Lodge transmissions gang. Indo’s holy month of Ramadan tends to put the brakes on things like telecommunications… So this report is a bit late – expect a follow up report in a day or two as well and we’ll be back on track! OK, so as you’ll see in…

THE RED SHORTS

June 11, 2019

You’ve heard of Hawaii’s notorious ‘Black Shorts’ – an intimidating bunch of local enforcers on Oahu’s North and West shores. Well, they’ve got NUTHIN’ on the Red Shorts crew – an epic collection of high-achieving humans (mostly) outta Hong Kong, who called Pinnacles North Telo home for ten days recently. Let’s meet ‘em. Cyrus: PNT…

The Ballad of Tory & Jared

June 6, 2019

This was one of the more special Pinnies trips we’ve ever hosted. Three families coming together to celebrate Jared “Jaz, Jez, Jazza” (take your pick) Neal’s incredible work constructing this very lodge. And, being a practical problem solver – as well as a romantic at heart – Jez made the most of the moment by…

Downtime

June 6, 2019

Every now and then the Indian Ocean takes a nap and refuses to wake from its slumber no matter how many binnies are sacrificed on Huey’s altar. It’s our solemn duty to report that our recent guest group didn’t score any swells of consequence on their trip. Still… check the photos and tell us you…

MORE MAY MAGIC

May 22, 2019

As you’ll see from the pics, head-high waves and light winds made for ten days of joy here at Pinnacles North Telo. Two swells in quick succession did the trick and an excellent surfing experience was had by all. The highlight would have been an epic go-out at The Bubble one morning, followed immediately by…
