Cultural Daytrip to Bedugul

Sunday is funday ;) ...Sunday is cultural daytrip day too ;). So let your tired body recover a little after five days of surfing and/or hard partynights out in Kuta or wherever & let's hit the road after Breakfast in direction to Bedugul! A nice drive through the inner part of the island of Bali in the middle of rice paddies, Vulcanos in the background of the scenery and of course a lot of balinese lifestyle along the road...not to forget: a lot of traffic too ;)

On the "to see list"

5 Life Hacks for Surfers

1) How to avoid loose boardies

Loose boardies can be a problem. Even if you sometimes prefer to surf naked, the second you realize that you're loosing your trunks while facing the impact zone of a 10 footer, you probably wonder how this could happen. The answer is as easy as the solution. If the fabric of your boardies and ties get wet, they shrink. But there are ways to avoid an untight-tie-up-lace situation.  Either wet them, before you bind them, or remember to tie them up again after you entered the water.

2) The foam rubber thermal insulation tube travelbag

Surfers travel. And travelling with your surfboard often means flying which also means that your baggage will be moved by people that consider a surfboard to be a mixture of an air matrace and a kanu. The result will be damage. Even if you are lucky, if you travel with your quiver, dings and cracks on your sticks will always be round the next corner. But there is one well-established method to bring the safety level of your crappy travel trolley up to the level of an high-class surfboard bag by the price of a box of cigarettes. Foam rubber insulation tube, used for heating or solar systems are available from your next hardware store for less than 3,-$ a piece. Buy 4 meters for a shortboard, fix them with duct tape and build your own diy custom sized protection bag! If you treat this construction gentle, you can put the foam frame several times on and off without taking the tape off or harming the stability. You can also cut a "pool noodle" in half. Tested and prooved!
