A few days ago, your blog correspondent came in from a piddly morning surf at Serangan (just me solo to a peak because the start of the trades had blown the legions and surf schools back to the west side). While changing by the car, I noticed an alarming lump in my nether regions. A mad dash to the SOS clinic confirmed it was a hernia, nothing serious, but I’m never been one to wait.
So I am recovering from the operation.
So in lieu of a real post, here’s a text message from my buddy Jim on his boat at Nembrala, Rote, where he’s long been a regular:
Nembrala 4 foot and 50 guys out. Everybody whinging most crowded ever.
Such is the modern Indonesian surfing experience.
A couple photos from long before the crowds:
