A newly discovered secret spot which I thought was rather pleasant - just a couple of hours away from his work and me -and only needs 1.5 m of swell.

And just him and his tinny driver - For OZ that is amazing - every break in Indo is now more crowded than that - many locals surf every break on boards left by visitors

Your impressions?

For some people bragging rights are more important that solo sessions?

The point being not many know where it is - and we are not telling

Too many dream about doing things, some make their dreams come true.
