Hailing from Pelabuhan Ratu in West Java, sixteen-year-old Bela was first inspired to surf five years ago after watching a local surfer compete. Today, Bela is the only Indonesian surfer to be awarded the International Surfing Association’s (ISA) Individual Scholarship Program and is an ISA ambassador.
