No argument re long range swell but to say it doesn’t break at 8ft is complete twaddle.

Allow $40 per day if you dont take em.
Stone the flamin crows, that equates to 8+ beers per day.

Its a surfing trip, not Ibiza.

I drank 15-20 beers a day, plus rum, plus joints, plus Gudam gurangs and surfed 6ft+ Cloudbreak every day for 4-6hrs for 2 weeks.

pretty sure I can handle a moderate intake of bintangs.

Sorry Loof, I know you are trying to help.
I'm still trying to get this article over the line and very, very stressed and sleep deprived.

No, not a moral crisis NC.

Looks to be some fun sized swell on the Bukit today and going by the pic that Peter Jovic posted on his insta of W.A. theres a nice pulse heading up to Indo.

Steady on. Don't go throwing my name into the mix when it comes to your misguided wave battle with Loofy. It's obvious Loof knows the score as pointed out by my juxtaposing of your comments with his re: Iceland. The fact that you are a seasoned surf journo with a proven track record of big wave surfing and Loof is a minimal riding Pom has little bearing around here.

Steve goes core on the surf booze combo.

Its been head to double, with offshores and low crowds for a week now, with another week coming up as good or better.
