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.
