....…….in today's "tales from the hollywood bowl"…,,,another dawn session, and it is forcasted to be about 8' solid, I was skeptical….I brought the 7'6" again with good fins(it was a bit sluggish yesterday)…..I was first out, paddled deep and hooked a good one……it was 6', and a bit tricky as if you sit deep, and in the middle, I could not get the medium ones as I was out too far, the odd bomb set would smash me, and the re-forms off the 2nd reef were hard to line-up…..at least the kook factor was at a minimum……jim, wayne, myself, and the "pull-back" knee-boarder, who let a few gems go by without yelling out……..it was a fun morning, glassy, big drops, fast sections, a few beatings, a broken(brand new) leash on my 10th wave, but I managed to swim and get my board, and I indo-rigged the leash, and got 3 more waves……the bommey looked ok as I was leaving……..I went back at 2-ish, and watched it for over an hour, and walked on it……I knew if I waited, for another hour or so it would probably get good, but 2 sessions for the past 3 days has me beat….no nap either as I was talking with huey, one of my house guests tina got picked up by gino, christian was running about shooting pics and bringing home stray animals, it was a busy afternoon……..a nice sushi last supper rounded out our evening…..…..…..today's photo is of shaun doing a power-slash………below…..……..……the sign-series continues…………….below(sea-level)…………..below………….is from the un-ridden wave series………below……..…is from the point-&-shoot series………below………………is the 2015-mentwai-surf-section.………below……….…is from the "shoot-from-the-hip" collection.………below……….…..……in the "as fink sees it" section, it's pak mantan, in the village on church day………and finally, some ogoh ogoh's from the not so recent Nyepi celebration………
