Chapter 9: Seven Ghosts

It's been a long ten days. Hell, it's been a long six months. But when word came to the Tip2Tip brain trust that a remote Indonesian tidal bore would be turning out its best deluge of waves in 19 years, we knew we had to keep searching... And when the 15-man crew - led by Dean Brady, Bruno Santos, Tyler Larronde, Oney Anwar, and original Searcher Tom Curren - returned from the jungle late last month, it was clear that our patience had paid off and that this footage had to get out to you double quick. Ten days after the mesmerizing trailer (cut to the hypnotic "Love Like A Sunset" by Phoenix) dropped to the tune of nearly a quarter of a million views, the wait is over.... and the Seven Ghosts are revealed.


Equipped with Panasonic LUMIX GH2 cameras, a team of world-renowned surf photographers and filmers were in tow to capture this once in a lifetime event, which Curren describes as “the most amazing Search trip in 20 years…”

What ensued was a surf session like never before. Witness the complete footage that the surf world will be talking about for weeks, months and years to come right here on Tip2Tip...

Tidal Fantasy

The footage you've been waiting for... When the first pulses of the tidal bore showed, Bruno Santos, Dean Brady, Tyler Larronde, Oney Anwar, and original Searcher Tom Curren were there to greet the chocolate barrels of the Seven Ghosts. Witness the greatest river bore tubes ever surfed.

The "Bono"

Bruno Santos, Dean Brady, Tyler Larronde, Oney Anwar  and Tom Curren take us through the moments leading up to surfing the Seven Ghosts and the momentous barrels that ensued. It was an experience they'll never forget.

It Is True

The rumors, the myth, the legend... the danger. When the Rip Curl Search crew showed up to surf what could be the greatest river bore waves on the planet, they expected nothing and everything. And it all came true... Here is the behind-the-scenes crew reliving their most harrowing moments on the river.

Twitter: It had a similar ecffet on me. It was just so automatic to click Reply and send a thank you message!I'm not really a big fan of group tweets of any type. Although it's nice to be recognized, being included in a list just doesn't have the same impact as a personal message that continues the conversation or provides value in some other way. It does get challenging sometimes, such as when one of your tweets gets a LOT of attention, but I think it's worth the effort to respond to each one in a meaningful way, even if you can't do it immediately.Janet Barclay recently posted..

I think that the whole experience of searching new spots to surf and making it happen, is a way of expressing our human intellectual freedom. I think that the search is not only about finding the best wave in the world to surf, but it connects us deeply with mother nature. It might help us to understand one day what we truly are as human-being and why we are hear today. May the search continue without an expire date!

Well, looks like they had one nice trip. But, it also looks like i am not the only one dissapointed with the feature(s) from Rip Curl. My advice to Rip Curl would be if you are serious about marketing "The Search" and best "Search" to date for that matter, i would launch a full theatrical release. Invest the time and money, people who buy rip curl well be more pleased.

Is that it? I mean yeah the barrels are sick and the endless wave is sick but is this all the video you captured? Seems like a hell of a trip to waste it on 6 or 7 waves and only collect two minutes of film with someone actually on a wave. Endless Summer took 1,000 times the amount of film and that was back in the day before current techno. Come on...Anticipation = 10, Dissappointment = 9.

Where can a bunch of grown men go and play in the mud, sand, and water just like little boys. Love it. I am 63 years old, but, I might just go out and buy me a surf board. Have fun, enjoy.

entry #252 by Too Much Hype

04/11/2011 19:22

I rolled into the office today so excited to see pumping river barrels. What I got was interviews and life style shots. This could have been done a lot better. The videos fell very short of the hype. It was like watching the same thing over and over again. They must not have received very usable action footage. I would rather look at the photos.

entry #253 by jimmy

04/11/2011 19:04

After all the hype and promise...what do we get? Half assed snippets and very little footage of actual waves ridden. Whoever chopped this up and put it together has very little regard for storytelling. Please re-do it as a doco. This was just too frustrating to watch - despite the amazing phenomenon.

I would love to have to opportunity to put my surfing to the test out in all the conditions you and your team surf in!
Although I'm pretty sure this far out cry at a sponsor me message wont work, I must say that Tom Curren, you are my inspiration to continue my free-surfing for the rest of my days in my current home of SoCal, my birth home of the Philippines, or wherever else i might find myself. Thank you for that! Stoked on these epic shots! Especially the sick tubes at 2:16 and 2:32. WOOH!

There are a handful of places in the world that have this type of surge. I think the Amazon does it also. anyway, if you are looking for this type of stuff, the world is kinda small now and I think much more efficient ways to go about it than browsing coasts... maybe look at a map with a smidge understanding of physics and tidal rhythms.

It seems this amazing wonder of the natural wonder is surpassed by the role of Rip Curl and its use of the digital medium. The forum being the broader community voice, it reveals how high the expectations of our culture have become, and how critical we are of a brand delivering a free hit of digital gold. KILLVAN.COM

I was very excited to see the footage of the "greatest find in Search history", but I was very dissapointed in the amount of actual surfing shown. You'd think something so great would be better documented. I don't care where it is, I'll likely never be able to afford to get there. I just wanted to see Curren and the boys tear it up. Instead I got choppy footage of approximately 4 waves and the rest was just people talking...

Very cool set of teasers but no actualy mov here. Kinda disappointing in that they talk about all these amazing things but never actually show any of it. Obviously there's a longer mov to come...I hope.

Pretty cool wave, not exactly what I was expecting... Seemed to close out ah bunch but I guess you can't expect much from a river wave. Not sure it's the "greatest" find but definitely pretty sick. More footage por favor :)

Powerful! Perfect example of surfing philosophy. Stop bitching and ride! Thank you for sharing for those of us that are land locked.

entry #279 by Bren

04/11/2011 09:22

What a let down after all that hype. Where is all the footage? Beside Tom's wave and that other barrel, there's nothing else to see excpet the crew talking about stuff which you never see on film. If you going to claim this as the biggest find in surf, then you have to deliver the goods othewise it gets dismissed at another false marketing attempt

entry #280 by wardo

04/11/2011 09:20

i agree after all the hype this received i expected to see at least a 10 min video???? And two of them are the same video. It looks rad but lets see more!!

entry #281 by LEGH DAVIES

04/11/2011 09:19

whoever was dissapointed by this does'nt see the creativity of this video! Beautifully shot and conceived in hostile conditions and a wonderfully long glassy wave -who could ask for anything more -well done RipCurl

entry #286 by Burki

04/11/2011 08:06

Disappointing... after so much hype, there was so little surfing, everything was pretty much the same as the trailer, the same 10 waves played over and over... In the interviews they are talking about surfing a 35 minute wave, where is the footage? In the trailer, there are barreling lines stacked to the horizon yet no one surfs any in the film... Lame

04/11/2011 07:00

amazing, and well done all round. I'm hoping there will be plenty of less edited footage just of entire rides. When natural phenomena like this occur there's less need to be arty and more need to just present it as is. One of the best things any clothing company has ever done!! Can I go next time?? I'll make you a wave pool like it!


04/11/2011 06:44

Thats offff the hook!! Curren is the style master.
F&#* all you haters because I am in Australia, I am 3 beers deep and I am going to surf my local river tomorrow even if it's 1ft deep. Shwo me more.

They urinate into it, they defecate in it, and Bali even cremates bodies into it and they do it by the community of VILLAGES.

On a different subject how about we all stop buying canned tuna. Not only is it a bit wiffy in sandwichs, blue fin and yellow fin species now face extinction. Commercial fishing in international waters has got out of control, but let's not forget we're the ones buying the end product. Not sure when I became a hippy or how much longer I'll be able to work in the city now.

Geezzz... this is incredible. What an amazing phenomenon. Do these waves only form during flooding, after heavy rainfall, certain tides or current directions? Very interesting. Can't wait to see more!

That looks amazing, it also looks like the Bono River in Sumatra. Pacific Longboarder magazine ran an article on it about 6 months ago, photographed by Frenchman Antony "Yep" Colas. Can't wait to see The Search vid.

WTsheeeet?!!! I've never seen such symmetrical surf. The waves are perfect replicas of each other. I had to place a cup under my mouth to catch the drool. I'm going to need a large boat and some jet skis after this...
