Today was just the morning morning; up about 8:30ish as usual, got breakfast in and sorted out the boards etc, then left to go for surf at Ulus about 10:30am.
The surf was pretty nice, about 3ft with the odd bigger one with 3 different peaks working nicely. For the first 45 minutes I was having a nightmare, scraping my hand up on the reef paddling out and then getting grief from the crowds and only getting a few crapy closeouts. Dave and I then paddled off up the reef and I got the best backhand wave I can remember, followed by 2 or 3 more fun ones.
We surfed for over 2 hours, and when we got out went straight to the little photo shack to see if the photogs had got any of the 5 of us. I was stoked to find the caught all of my best waves, including the really good one as I was doing a big top turn. Between we got 27 photos, 9 of which were mine and paid $1 a photo.
We drove back desperate for a cold shower and some drinks as it was a stinking hot day, then looked through the photos, which I was stoked about. We then had some lunch and went off to Kuta for the late arvo/early evening.
The boys went shopping and had dinner, while I sat I the surf shop I went to with Mum and Dad for 3 hours getting my dreads sorted out. The guy who did them was a really nice bloke, and really knew what he was on about. I know how to look after them properly in future, now they are actually proper dreads rather than funny sausage looking things. I was a little gutted that they are now about an inch shorter again, but Atleast they are sorted.
We got back eventually about 9pm, after fitting all 5 of us + driver in a little taxi. Then I had dinner, uploaded the surf photos to Facebook and then watched the next 'Game of Thrones' with the guys before hitting the sack about midnight.
