A couple of years ago we ran interview with this young man, long known as the stand-out surfer at Bingin on Bali’s Bukit Peninsula. Mega is a super quiet, humble, funny guy, whose overall life ambition is actually to be a priest.

The Rip Curl Cup at Padang Padang, just a quick paddle up the reef from Bingin, is huge these days, attracting a quiverful of the world’s best tube riders every year.
In 2012 Mega lost the final in the dying moments as Chris Ward found himself a hail mary 10 point ride, so this year fr Mega to finally take the cup, it’s huge.
