Desert point, ekas.

The Gilis get good too, though not Lombok

Dons Dons is good when its bigger. I surfed it once by myself once for a few hours in early March at head and a half to double.

That was quite a few years ago, I guess it would be a shitfight now even in March

You won't be seeing crowds like in the following pics then

Our swell has been downgraded Salty, they knocked about 40% off the kJs so it looks like a pleasant head and a half with the occasional double.

Yes. There were three occasions last year when I was caught by 5+ wave double overhead+ sets and felt that I was getting close to the limit. I, and most in the water at the time (who were already a pretty small group) paddled in.

In light of the new forecast, will you be revising your trip quiver, Cranked?

Nah. Plus I'm already in Bali now.

And very pleased to find out that I missed one of the heaviest wet seasons in many years. Only started fining up in the last week and I certainly hope it stays on that trend

Heaviest wet season? Do you mean heaviest rainfall or very solid swell?
