It's been 16 years since Tom Curren and Frankie Oberholzer shared a boat in Indo together. Back then Google didn't exist and G-Land was a far-flung jungle expedition for only the globe's most intrepid surfers. Today, Google provides us with 305,000 results under the search phrase "Indonesia surf camps" and G-Land looks like the Super Bank on a Saturday. Today, towing at Tom's heels are his sons Patrick and Frank. In so many waves, this trip is very different from their 1994 trip. But on second thought -- when you get down to it and out in the water -- nothing has changed at all. Music: Free As - Jussie Smith
