wots on with bawa - wots going on with bawa how different is the wave now after the earthquake. before with the right swell the end bowl was sick .does it still work. if you have spent enough time there you know the many different ways it can break but esentially it was best when the end bowl was working with the peak .are any losmens operating or is it back to ferral kingdom.

update on REAL situation in Hinakos - Some of the statements being made in the messages below about the conditions in the Hinakos post tsunami and march 28 earthquake are not quite true. Latest situation in the Hinakos is that yes the wells were dry for a few days but they have since been redug and most of the locals homes have been rebuilt and everyone on Asu and Bawa is pretty much back to normal. As for the waves i can tell you "first hand" that yes the reefs in some places have risen up to 3m BUT the wave at Asu is still long and lining up as before with the inside section as gnarly as ever. In some swell conditions the wave at Asu is breaking even further up the point than before meaning even longer rides. Bawa has not changed. The wave at Lagundri Bay is still as perfect as ever. Other "first hand" info from people who have been surfing this area over the last 6 weeks (including the massive swells of the last week) is that while the earthquake and reef lifting has "changed" some pre-existing high quality waves these waves are definitely not "ruined" and it also appears that waves that were previously fat and mushy and/or unsurfable into perfect waves PLUS it appears that several BRAND NEW breaks have popped up. Examples include at least one "new" left hander that has been surfed on the north end of Nias island and a right hander near Simelue that used to be always fat and mushy but is now perfect!
