Dedi’s Gunna Tell Ya

Tuesday, 23 April 2013

We strapped a mic to self-proclaimed Lakey Peak ‘line-up controller’, Dede Gun, to find out a little more about his journey.

You probably know Dede Gun. He’s that fish-outta-water Indonesian guy wriggling into a 5mm Rip Curl wetsuit in Alaska and Norway; or maybe he called you into, our out of, a wave at Lakey Peak, his home break. He’s the big guy with the wild hair, the infectious smile and the endless charms, the guy that is everyone’s best friend – unless you hassle too hard, or step out of line, at his beloved local.

What you might not have known is how Dede got to where he is. How he spent his formative years sleeping on a restaurant floor because it was closer to the surf than his village, and what life was like growing up as one of Lakey Peak’s ‘Lost Boys’.

Surfing Life provoked Dede to tell us a bit about his life, and to miss some pool shots.

Starring Dedi Gun, Finda Ramlin and Andre Anwar.
