Central Coast’s Oscar Langburne recently headed to Bali and Sumatra for 20 days, along with a fully stocked quiver. Each board had one of his icons glassed in, which is something super fresh for a cat this young and shit, do we like it . What – or should we say who – made it into his quiver for the Indo adventure? Oscar explains below.
Oh, and the little fella with the big taste can really surf too.
“Bali was pretty small besides the last few days, but we did get a really good right-hander up the coast where I got to ride my 4’6” Untitled with Ian Curtis of Joy Division on the back. That board is just soooo good in waves anywhere between 1-4-foot. I rode it like 80% of the time over there [laughs].
Then I rode a newer Holy Grail for the trip, which I think worked much better this time because it had less volume. For instance I rode it at Bingin, and the Grail just goes so well in sucky, slabby waves. It’s super fast. That’s a 4’7” with Hope Sandoval on the back.
I rode a Black Noiz, which is my step-up. I rode that when it was a bit bigger. That one has Amy Winehouse on the back and I rode my White Noiz in Sumatra heaps when the waves got good at Krui Lefts. That one’s got Deborah Harry on the back and is my standard shortboard, what I rode most of the time when it was good in Sumatra. It’s one of my favourite boards from Hayden, for sure.
I rode my 4’5” Hypto Krypto when it got a bit bigger on a long lefthand point in Sumatra, too. It went really sick, so smooth. It’s really surprising how well it holds in bigger, bowly waves. Even though it’s 4-inches shorter than my regular shortboards, it goes so well in bigger waves.”
