POTTZ AND FRIENDS

August 23, 2019

WSL commentator Joe Turpel could barely raise himself out of bed for the better part of a fortnight just recently. A part of him was missing – and that part was ’89 World Champ Martin Potter… who’d bolted to Telo Island Lodge with a bunch of buddies. Let’s do a quick roll call. Martin Potter.…

CHARGERS

August 13, 2019

A good bunch of surf-hungry humans called Telo Lodge home, 3rd-13th August. They came from all over the planet and headed home with appetites satisfied. So, with no further ado, let’s meet: Adam Trehane. London, UK. Adam’s 2nd time to TIL. Poor bugger missed his connection out of Singapore and instead of doing the Nias/ferry…

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…).…

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…

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…
