In this episode, we head to the beautiful beaches of Bali, Indonesia to talk to YASNYIAR BONNE GEA, a professional surfer who currently is crowdfunding over at our favorite crowdfunding platform MAKEACHAMP to raise funds for her upcoming competition schedule as she aims for the Asia Champion Title. 

She is a 5 Time Indonesian Women's Champion (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012), and a 2 Time Asian Champion (2011, 2014).

What makes her story so fascinating is how she got to this point, in that Bonne was completely self-taught. She started surfing quite late in life (20-21), and she got herself to the point that she is now completely through hard work, trial and error, determination, and a love for being on the waves. 

We talked about her journey to get where she is now, about surf tourism in Indonesia, how surfing can be used for female empowerment, the parallels that surfing have on normal life, and you'll hear a touching story by her friend Lentera Lentaya (who also is the second voice you hear translating in this episode) talking about how she met Bonne and how amazing a person Bonne is. 

You can contribute to Bonne's MAKEACHAMP campaign, and keep track of her news and social media (she does a lot of great videos) at the following links:
