We are all super stoked to have our long term mate Dave Simons join our professional team at Resort Latitude Zero in 2018 and Beyond.

Dave is well respected amongst his peers as an outstanding operator, surfer, fisherman, diver and host and has just about more surfing experience than anyone out on the water in this region and we are happy to have Dave passing that knowledge and skill on to our other foreign and local staff members at Resort Latitude Zero.

In his earlier days, Dave was a pro long boarder, one of the best in the world. As a young pro surfer, he did 4-5 trips on the Mangalui Ndulu, along with photographer Swilly. He fell in love with this part of the world and scored some work managing ‘Telo island Lodge’ and was instrumental in building, maintaining and growing not only the lodge but also a great  working relationship with all other operators in the Sumatra. Dave’s reputation grew in the surf resort industry during this period and of course he continued scoring perfect waves every day.

We look forward to continuing the Telo story with Dave and his young family for many years to come and to continue sharing the stoke with our guests at Resort Latitude zero.
