Somewhere unlikely, as I remember being surprised when she said it, which means easy to forget.

Her accent was very neutral with just a tiny bit of something different. We exchanged email addresses.

She was well connected to the Bali surf community already.
How does she pronounce France?

I snapped my leggie at Bondi today. I think it died of old age

Dreamy little runners if you nabbed one. Kind of wish I had brought my mal. Foamy* went well though.

Were you that guy on the foamie who looked like a lizard with a ponytail?

I don't think France came up during our conversation Beany

Possible lizard but no ponytail. I was the guy who was carving :wink:

Watched some footage of Balangan. Total chaos. Looked like a Summer Sunday at Bondi. Shockingly low skill level.

I was there a few days ago. The foreshore, warungs and places to eat have all the charm of a rubbish dump. 200 learners packing the lineup make perfect chaos to set it all off.

Can you tell I think Bali is being completely fucked over?

The last time this happened, around 1995, I stayed away for a decade (only passed through to other islands in the archipelago).

It was pretty quiet when we were staying up the top and I caught up with you, Cranky. It seemed to be getting a few learners riding the white water in across the reef at high tide. Recent footage looks out of control though. Dodging people left, right and centre.

100 learners with regular head high sets pretty much tends to chaos

Shame. Used to be a bit off the radar.

The whole infrastructure is fucked. That's one thing for a third world country but they are trying to attract tourists who are not keen to be regularly caught in traffic for 3 or 4 hours for a 40 minute trip

Great food and juices!
Do you ever stay at Made Jam’s place anymore, or see him around? Full of Brazzos still?
