Was just remembering some things that happened there 20 years ago. One day in September my Californian mate who lived on the Bukit picked me up at my place in Kuta and we headed east to a spot he wouldn't tell me the name of until we got there. On the highway just out of Sanur we stopped at a traffic light and a newspaper boy came up to the car waving a Jakarta Post with the World Trade Center towers on the front page. We went surfing that day and came back in the evening to the news playing on all the TVs in the Kuta shops and restaurants.

My last surf at Ulus was pretty crap. I’ve only surfed it about four times since 1989. Watching SOB I established that every other time I surfed it it happened to be breaking from that section which has a fairly mellow take off before hitting the racetrack section. Last time it was breaking further around and pitching a lot more. Plus it was crowded. Lucky Cranky wasn’t there to watch.

My only trip to Bali was when I was 13 or 14. I was Bob Marley mad, and we stayed in some expat's beautiful house a half an hour's walk down a winding path in a dusty town called Ubud. 8 weeks, surrounded by locals, kids playing in the river. The place was magic for sure.

It was transcendant, one of the most amazing times of my life. Everywhere I went, I heard Bob Marley. I bought loads of cassettes and started talking bahasa, smoked a cheeky gudang or two. Saw a cremation which was intriguing and so different to anything I'd seen previously. Went and saw the local band at some east coast tourist town without my parents, getting a lift with the guitarist, who acted as my chaperone, on his motorbike from the place we were staying. They played Bob Marley songs. I had a beer, the band let me come up and play a tune on guitar. They looked after me. I bought gorgeous batik cloth for a girl I liked back home.

In fact, the only thing I didn't do was surf.

I had this feeling from that place that I will never forget, and I'm kinda scared to see how it is now.




But I'm also ready to surf my head off.

MM spent a few weeks there with me a while ago.
How did that work out for you? I’m guessing mullet’s personal habits leave an awful lot to be desired
Au contraire ol’ chap, not for me to say but I believe my behaviour was acceptable.

While I surfed today a majestic black swan slowly drifted around out the back. I thought kunji would appreciate it.

Very true. I had never been to Balangan before and it was like stepping back in time. Plus a pleasant lunchtime chat.
Every time I have been to Bali I have surfed somewhere new on the trip.
So far I’ve surfed Kuta Reef, Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Canggu, Green Balls, Ulus, Hyatt Reef, Keramas, Medewi, Balian, Serangan and a non descript bit of Nusa Dua.
