Surfing Batu Karas – we’re back in Indo!

We’ve been in Indonesia for bit over a week now. Spent a few days in Bali eating to much good food and then decided to head over to Java. Β So now we been in smallish fishing/resort village Batu Karas for a week or so. This place has such a nice vibe and feel to it, everyone is super duper friendly, the place is beautiful, the water is so clear, the food is oh so good – so here’s the catch… ther’s been no waves whatsoever since we got here pretty much, I think Sri Lanka spoiled us a bit with nice waves everyday. Yesterday there was some bumps around but that’s the day we picked to do our visa extension (of course) so no waves for us. Today finally we had some little bumps.

Hammocking and hanging out

It doesn’t take long to get used to the traveling life again, we’re spending a lot of time doing not to much which takes up a lot of time for some reason. Since we spent a lot of time here there’s a lot of familiar faces and Bali is just one of those places that people come back to and tend to stay for a long time so we’ve been pretty busy doing some catch ups with friends we haven’t seen in a while.

Maruf does surf trips to G-land (Pax has been last time) and Red Island – much recommended. This time we don’t have enough time for it. the-sidewalk-secrets-photography-cronulla-bali-indonesia-medewi-kuta-surf-2441
