Seven Ghosts: is this heaven?

The "Seven Ghosts" is the new mysterious wave discovered in Indonesia. The Rip Curl Search team has been traveling the world looking for new surf spots and found out an incredible tidal bore that can be surfed eternally.

Tom Curren, Bruno Santos, Dean Brady, Oney Anwar and Tyler Larronde witnessed this endless wave, after several months of searches. Curren believes "Seven Ghosts" is the longest wave of his life. "It's the most amazing Search trip in twenty years", says Tom.

The footage leaves you breathless. Some say it is the greatest river bore tube ever surfed. For several weeks, there were rumors spreading that an incredible new discovery was achieved, but the Indonesian wave was kept secret.

Suddenly, "Seven Ghosts" becomes a legend and an Asian myth. It's not easy to get there, it's not easy to survive the dangers and crocodiles are looking forward to get a special meal.

"Seven Ghosts" is as wide and long as heaven. The wave is brown-chocolate and breaks for 50 kilometres, in remote Sumatra. Is it true? Yes, it's true. Find the truth.
