Serangan

Too much wind - 10-15 kt onshore wind made it a pretty bad day at usually glassy Serangan.  Waves were all blown over and paddle out reminded us of Ocean Beach, San Francisco.  We were the only 2 surfers out there surfing just before high tide.

- Nice high tide morning session.  Long wave but slow and soft today - tough to get enough speed to stay ahead of the whitewater.  Lined up with the red flags on shore and more or less the tower on Gili Meno.  Chill, fun crowd.

Good surf. Ula's, Scarecrows, Ariks, Ombuk Tudor, Icelands, Resorts, Telescopes. Telescopes is one of the best waves I have ever surfed, awesome pobarrels. Icelands is good on a medium size day with some big drops. Nice trip, low crowds.

looking for travel buddy/s - Hi,
I´m actually staying on bali for a few months, but would like to leave the island for a couple of weeks. Thought about going east to Lombok, especially Sumbawa(more the west coast) and maybe Sumba. Or going west to Java( Pacitan, Pangandaran, Grajagan and of course exploration). Would like to go for about 3 weeks with motorbike from now on until end of August. Sharing a car is also an opportunity.
To have some company and a better time while travelling I´m looking for a/some travel buddy/s with similar ideas.
I´m 28, german and would consider myself as a intermediate surfer.
So, hope to hear from you.
Alex
