GoPro delves into the dynasty of Indonesian surf lineage and ambassadorship in Bali, in the first chapter of the eight-part HERO3+ Adventures Series. We first meet Marlon Gerber, brother-in-law of WCT surfer Rizal Tanjung, and their host of surfing in Bali. Rizal has been at the head of the Indo surf dynasty even before he joined the WCT. More recently, he has passed the crown to Marlon, who is now the representative professional surfers from around the world contact when they come to surf Indo.
Reluctant to inherit the responsibility, Marlon considered continuing his education but, as he puts it:
With Marlon and Varun as their guides, GoPro athletes Lakey Peterson and Alana Blanchard, as well as Mikala Jones, embark upon the Balinese waves of Indonesia.
Like Marlon, and Rizal before him, Mikala Jones represents Hawaiian surfing and serves as ambassador of the islands to the rest of the world. And just as Marlon would reach out to Mikala when he visits Hawaii, Mikala does the same in Bali. Join GoPro on this journey of tradition, family, and surfing in the waters of Indonesia with the Masters of Indo.
