We should’ve stopped at the wave right then it was working perfectly, but we continued to our lodgings which were on a lagoon with no waves and the car which brought us buggered off. Rookies.
I resigned into the fact that I was going to film the morning session as my boards should be arriving about midday, delivered by an unknown driver who’d volunteered for the job (only in Indo). This allowed me to enjoy the new surrounds with a few Bintangs and not bring everyone down.
The next morning the we found a new car and driver and it was on, sort of. The perfect waves from Pete’s phone were close outs and not really “all that” due to swell direction we discovered in hindsight. I filmed it and didn’t feel like I missed out on anything; it looked pretty average. Driving back I know I wasn’t the only one thinking ‘shit, did we come all this way for that?’ So we got the driver to begrudgingly take us to the famous crowded option a few bays down.
