Yeah, a few in the mix around no mans. It looked better past the pole up towards the lagoon

Take it easy on Beery thanks, Buddy. He went to Waterbom after all.
Did he go on the flow rider?

I don't even know how you would go to Bali and not go surfing?

Me either but Beery seems like a devoted Dad and a solid fella. We’ve never heard about his missus. Maybe she’s an absolute ball breaker and forbade him from surfing because it was a family holiday. I think we need some more background info before he gets seeded into the round of 16 tard pool.

Non surfing family and friends. Could’ve rented a board and paddled out on the beach at Seminyak but I didn’t. I really enjoyed the trip regardless. Mrs beer fan is a lovely woman.

not having a go Beery, but I never quite understand that argument either.

I don't play golf. I'm a non golfer.
My Dad is a mad keen golfer.

If we went to St Andrews and he didn't go hit a ball or have a round because I was there- a non golfer- I'd think there was something wrong with him.
It's no skin off my nose if he goes and has a hit, in fact I'd be overjoyed because I know how stoked he would get.

Would those non-surfers, do those non-surfers really get bent out of shape if you get a go-out?

Like if you took off early one arvo and caught a boat out to Kuta reefs and were back a few hours later, would they really be upset at you?
Or would you feel like you had let them down or impinged on their holiday?

I'm just trying to understand the psychology.

I find it’s tricky to get a go out when you are a guest of non-surfers. It’s like, yes I appreciate your are all going for a lovely morning stroll then having brunch, but there is something I would much prefer to be doing and the sea breaze will be in later. Surfing is a bitch.

I'm with Steve. It can be a surprising pain in the butt to get to the waves in the traffic but unless there's no waves you can rent a board pretty much anywhere. Unless you're in Ubud of course.

I've even rented a board at Kuta and Nusa Dua when we happened to go over there when we were staying somewhere else.

Why ... is the answer.

Surfing isn't some mystical form of meditation that creates an overwhelming magnetic field, drawing ones soul ever so closer to the cosmic flow of Buddha's bowl movements. Its just a really really pleasurable way of whiling away the hours that make up the dull day ... a bit like fishing or masturbation ... or visiting realsurf, which funnily enough is a combination of fishing and masturbation, with a smattering of verbal diarrhoea ... watery stools is also very Bali and a great name for a band.

Beery didn't go surfing, so what ...

I wouldn't waste one precious moment contemplating going to Bali, let alone surfing there. Just as Shearer would have us believe that the Maldives is for ageing kooks and the Ox is the last bastion of righteous localism, except during holiday season when its overrun by workadaddys and cube monkeys, who most other people refer to as the gainfully employed. Theres something ironic about a bus driver who missed the bus ...

But all that is neither here nor there ... the real question is ... where the fuck is Crabmeat ?
The moving finger writes and having writ moves on ... now all thy piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel even half a line ... nor all thy tears wash out a single word of it.

Of course Steve reckons he wouldn't surf at Bondi where you can rent boards anywhere. Kuta isn't far off the same level.

You could make e3xactly the same argument about anything though Yuke.

why go to the Louvre if you're in Paris? Why do anything?

I guess it's just a surfing forum so the question seems at least worth asking.

Bondi is a little different to Bali Beany.

Just a bit.

I did have a really fun surf at Bondi during the Sydney Olympics, borrowed a board off a backpacker on the beach and rode these really fun babyfood lefts.

There was a particularly fun bank then because they had put the Beach Volleyball on the beach and pushed a lot of sand around. It's usually a bit south of there.

If we were with other friends, who do surf, it would’ve been different Steve. I surf probably 6 to maybe 10 times a year as well. It’s not as important to me as when I surfed 2-3 times a week.

Surf here is most excellent and was uncrowded at a few spots when I checked it at 6am. I thought of going out, but jeeze, it was a rising
full moon tide and who needs all that water pushing in? It'll be better on a falling tide and sunnier too. Low tide around sunset will be epic but crowded. And it's just going to get better all week.

I went to Bali with the fam and only surfed once, was a mission to get to the Bukit in traffic, crowded as fccck and considering its something I do all the fccckn time at home whenever I want I just couldn't be fccked. There wasn't much enjoyment in it.

Got the 8ft single fin out for the first time in ages this morning, high tide south swell coming in a bit straight but this board was perfect for it, early entry, set the rail and go. Got one of the best waves I have had down there in a while, absolute screamer.
