“A fantastic break: a big workable left hander that is about 90 metres long and breaks in 3 sections,the locals are great and never gets too crowded, except when its flat at kuta and ya get a carload or 2 come up for the day, this is bali circa 1970s, 30 cents a coffee 2 bucks a nasi. A couple of bombies to look out for but pretty cool.”
