August 11, 2019

Pinnacles hosted the first of our 2019 Shape Escapes, with Gold Coast legend foam-mower Murray Bourton shaping a custom board for several of our guests. No better way to test out a new sled than in glassy indo lineups with your shaper on the shoulder taking notes. Let’s meet our crew. Dave McPherson, Coffs Harbour…

Shellbacks!

July 25, 2019

An epic bunch of legends from different cultures and creeds came and surfed their brains out here at Telo Lodge. Lets meet ‘em quick smart.

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…

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…

Breathing Space

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…
