Betet Merta // Indo // 0:56

Betet Merta is that guy in Bali. Actually, he’s “Da Guy” in Bali, da one who dominates lineups at every break from Padangbai to Medewi. And for great reason — as you’ll see here, Betet surfs with boisterous abandon that would make even the most entitled pro change the course of his luxury surf charter to avoid a paddle battle with da guy. And, while we’re used to seeing Indo waves so perfect they make barrel riding look simpler than stealing wheat germ from a fat kid, here Betet takes to the dirtier side of Indo’s offerings — drainers that would incline most guys to say, “Meh, how ’bouts we check Kuta Beach…” But Betet is not “most guys.” He’s “Da Guy.”
