Pretty much burnt to a crisp now. Some thumping waves over the last couple of days. First at Uluwatu yesterday and then Nusa Dua today. According to the swell buoys it’s 6ft at 19 (yes nineteen) seconds. A 19 second swell period is about a good as you could hope for in surfing (the longer the period the more organised and defined the waves are). Needless to say I surfed as much as possible aware of the fact that in five short days I’ll be on my jourey home to Gwithian.
Must be getting old though, my shoulders are aching and my 36 yr old skin is starting to resemble an elephants.
Always wear sunscreen kids.
I am hearing lots of good things about the surf back in Cornwall but I promise you, surfing in shorts is much better! The waves have been good here for the past week or so but then, how often is it bad out in Bali? Headhigh waves at least everyday, not breath of wind until the early afternoon and colossal thunderstorms every night. The afternoon sea breeze has kicked in at the moment but there are still some beauty waves coming through with no one out at all.
Only a week and a half before I have to make the long journey home. I’ve got to make the most of the time I have out here so in between the surfs I have managed to sow the seeds of a future venture. Time to get into the importing game!
This summer will see a few more bits of beautiful surf jewelry arriving in our shop. If you look at them closely enough and breath in you can almost smell the waves.
You’re gonna love ‘em!
