With today’s smaller swell (2.0m with smaller interval) it is producing a few more decent waves in comparison to yesterday’s straight-handers. Late session yesterday was the goods. Early morning NW winds were promoting cleaner surfaces but there […]

Tomorrow is a different story with a bigger swell predicted…so the locals say…Chinese whispers on the peninsula aren’t the best source of swell info…local Warungs (huts) always say tomorrow will be ‘going off’ in order to lure you […]

Ahh good old Bali… This Indonesian pearl has been putting on a few waves over the weekend – mostly around the 4 – 5 foot range. The Bukit, packed with breaks has been offshore all day – does it get any better than this? Some of the sunsets have been just ridiculous…the colours so vibrant […]

Bintang. The Indonesian word for Star & name of their national beer. Have you ever wondered why Indonesia has such a good tasting beer seeing the locals don’t really drink it? These little smiling guys don’t scull a 6 pack on the way to bathroom like Big Tom at the Beach Road. Just not in […]
