Barra - Sorry everyone- I got this place 1 year before the ripcurl pro or whoever it was exposed it. Me and two mates stayed for 2 weeks. Surfed everyday, as long as Kirra, as perfect as the best spots in indo. Most times just the three of us- max 10 guys out. Not a brag- just saying it pays to get out and go places before the world tour picks em up. Peace
