Accomadation - Sumba - I'm struggling to find budget accommodation on the west/south west of this island, i know home stay is an option, but need a couple of days to settle in initially. some help would be appreciated.
Surf in Flores Alor - Has anyone experienced the surf in Flores or Alor? Alor is an island at the east site of Flores. Many thanks
sumba - just spent some time in sumba and did go to nihiwatu,besides the politics of claude and co,the wave is too good not to sample.insane.
Nihiwatu - Sketchy Int'l. Finance Types Involved - Check out the shady characters on Sumba Foundation Board - and their "Economic Hit Man" profiles. Their foundation is clearly a land takeover attempt, probably involving questionable international financial transactions and corruption. Some wealthy people are scratching each others' backs on these dealings. By the way, I don't think Indonesia has an extradition treaty with the western countries . . .
firstname.lastname@example.org - feel free to send him an email... or anything else.
Can anyone confirm these things on the ground in Sumba. Philanthropic bullshit or is he entitled to his own wave? My opinion, no one owns the ocean...!
nihiwatu - Some heavy stuff about Nihiwatu Resort. Pak Aldo's post can't be good for public relations. I would have to agree with the boycot suggestion. Not that I'd use these booking companies anyway. Having exclusive surfing rights at Nihiwatu sets a dangerous precident in Indonesia. Mr. Graves would have the public think that he is Mother Theresa.
timor - i'm leaving to east timor in march, and of course me and my boards for maybe 3 years (who knows)?does anyone could help me about conditions and spots, or local surfers contacts?i'll appreciate, thankstfeio
- its not tavarua or something this wave is off the coast...imagine they did this at ulu and or padang heads would roll...maybe its that time boys!boycott wavehunters which books this as well and quicksilver.
question - Hey guys could you help me...Is there any way I´ll be allowed to surf there without being in the resort???im getting to Indo soon and was planning to check this sopt but cant afford ths resort.
Bapak Metebulo - I hope that is not true that Bapak Metebulo was assassinated. I stayed in his village 5 years ago, and managed to surf Nihinwatu, with some people who stayed at the resort and didn't mind that we surfed with them....But didn't meet that mister Claude....
