Goodbye, Batukaras! But finally some surf pics ;)

Why we moved away earlier than expected...

Dear all,

as Sigrid has problems with her arms and back since days and we needed to see a hospital, we finally decided to move earlier to Bandung. It was a good decision and if you ever need a hospital in Indonesia, we can recommend RS Advent - ofcourse not the same like in Europe, but it was clean and helpful. She must wear now a ruff, but luckily she feels better. And we are both more relaxed!

But before we write you more about Bandung and the area around (Lembang), I promised you some surfing pictures. As we told you before, the waves are smooth at Batukaras and never ever dangerous or enormous, but we also had some bigger days. With some decent swell, the waves are not only fun for long-boarders, also at lower tides, short-boarders can find their happiness. If you catch the wave right at the point infront of the rocks, you can ride for at least 300-500 meters till the next bay. One guy was lucky and a got a leaving fisher boat that gave him a lift back to the point ;).
After four o'clock on the good days, the locals invade the point. They start infront of the rocks and it gets almost impossible to get the good ones. We advice to surf in the morning or early afternoon.

I enjoyed surfing in Batukaras a lot. As a whipe-out never has consequences, you can really work on your turns and take more risk.

Hang loose,
The Soulfeeders
