Re: Kuta/Legain Accommodation Recommendation?

Get off the plan, jump in a taxi & find your own place... All the other recommendations are spot on as well if you want to pre-organize something. Be prepared for a shock if you haven't been in a while... G-Land should be good in the mornings & evenings. Have fun Cheers Nikko Nikko-that sounds good...

Re: Finless.Derek hynd, ridiculous!!!!!

Derek's a living legend and with our without fins still rips the sh!t-so he's off on a path and he's eclectic-great-more power to him-can't all be potato chip tri/quad clones-and wouldn't want it that way.

Kuta/Legain Accommodation Recommendation?

Off to g-Land next week and luckily for the past 15 years when going to Indo I've stayed at a mate's place who lived there (past tense-so not an option this time). Only in Bali a night or 2 on the way in and straight home on the way back. All the places I stayed at back in the 80's are shopping mall...

Re: Seal in the surf at North Avalon last night

I often see a guy swimming WAY out the back in flippers and mask/snorkel towing an orange balloon, he's not diving, but just ocean swimming like that-any idea who the guy is and what his deal is-seems to me to be a Darwin Awards candidate.... the gentleman is a Russian emigre in his late 50s. His f...

As if getting cleaned up by a Tsunami on Nias wasn't scary enough! Great comeback story, look forward to the book. :D
Tsunami was G-Land-and there was also a shark at Margaret River.

Re: Seal in the surf at North Avalon last night

Point Break will, deservedly, fade into insignificance by the time she's grown up a bit. :lol: That's exactly what I thought when I read your post - you named her after Patrick Swayze. I tried to be tactful though :lol:. Be careful, Point Break is a cult classic. It might hang around longer than yo...

Re: Seal in the surf at North Avalon last night

If that's what you want, I edited my post to remove her name. I'm sure Trev will edit his quotation of my (now non-existent) post. Nah-no worries, unfortunately the typed word does little to communicate what's behind the words compared to a face to face chat -Point Break will, deservedly, fade into...

Re: Seal in the surf at North Avalon last night

Hmmmm-maybe I shoulda' edited out her name in the post-remember it, she's a very good surfer for her age-has already won BL's grom comp and was given a 'Most Fearless' award by Machado in the comp (when she was 6).

Re: What does everyone think of Surfing World's 300 list?

I reckon the SW 300 is an awakening of sorts for the crew who are running it, a forced history lesson of sorts. I liked it enough to send em a story for the next available slot. Pfft, please, you got an ad coming up with STC or something? I did like Edition 300 but I think SW is doomed, since the C...

Re: Seal in the surf at North Avalon last night

That's a good idea Matt (staying out of the water on dusk at a spot where a shark attack has occurred in the recent past, when the water temp is 24, there's been a colossal runoff and associated nutrients flooding the water, and a lot of baitfish under the surface everywhere). Encourage everyone to...
