I have spent the last 5 weeks in Bali. Mostly on the southern Buket, exploring a little, all coastal and selfishly surf driven. I love Bali because there is so many great people, both local and tourists. Good karma. Most are cool with having the camera pointed their way, and I feel safe leaving my gear with the little restaurants on the beach. Most importantly, there are always waves.
38 days, 60 plus surf sessions, two flight changes, one broken board, facial and eye bruising, one fin to face cut, a couple back scratches, 35 days of belly/rib rash, countless reef cuts, an awesome leash tan, a couple minor scooter accidents, one crazy surf appetite later, and I'm back in the mother land. Surfing is so addictive. It's a great battery charger for me before diving into 5 months of non-stop snow travel shooting.
I fell in love with Bali. People are happy there, it's hot, beautiful and full of babes. I didn't shoot a ton, but here's some stuff I liked. Check back for more soon.
