A surf spot with two names…Lance’s Right is named after Lance Knight, a feral adventurer who discovered the wave in 1991. A couple weeks later, the Indies Trader showed up, and captain Martin Daly named the wave after Lance. It’s also called Hollow Trees because, you guessed it, there was a very hollow tree in front of the lineup. These days, the names are used interchangeably, but the one thing that hasn’t changed is the sheer perfection of this challenging right tube. And as Indo has been pumping nearly nonstop for weeks, it’s no surprise that some of the best waves in the archipelago were seen and ridden here. (Plus, photog Trevor Murphy’s capture is beyond what anyone’s ever doodled on their schoolbooks.)

Located in the Bass Strait between southwestern Australia and Tasmania, King Island is a remote and rural slab of land with less than 2,000 human residents and a sh*t ton of rare and endangered birds. It’s also home to one of the world’s best — and perhaps most fickle — beachbreaks, Martha Lavinia. Big swells wrap around the island from both directions, creating aquamarine blue teepees up and down the beach. Victoria-based photog Ed Sloane saw things lining up earlier this week, pulled the trigger on a quick surgical strike and scored.
