Atmosphere

Best wave I surfed in indo. 6-8 foot, no one out, took 2 hours by boat to get there from where I was staying. The spot is a swell magnet and has a really deep channel next to it so no clean up sets on the paddle back out. Can only surf in the morning as it gets blown out easily. Very long rides. Super powerful.

Theft - Surfed here 2 weeks ago. Surf average but crime heavy. We all had shit stolen including my ipod. Some of the "friendly" locals are not to be trusted.
