surfs up ballin
“after a few more days of small waves in bingin’ we headed north up to cangoo (changoo) where franny and alana live. many beach breaks up and down the coast, small but fun, and not too many guys. there’s three rivers up and down the beach, so makes for a good break.
we grouped up with fernando & alana (peruvian and aussie), their friends: jose & marilou (both peruvian, importing from here), and jasmine & jason (surfin buds from australia), and headed up to balian for the weekend. girls in one car, boys in another, and an hour and a half later we were in the quaint little beach of balian. another rivermouth, some nice fun waves. an interesting group of expats residing up there, definitely a great place to chill at.
saturday the gals indulged and lounged all day long, stuffing their faces and tanning. while the boys, we did what we do best, surf, eat, surf, drink, surf and so on. there was supposed to be a full moon mask party rager, but didn’t really seem to happen. we went out the night before with franny and alana, so we were good to chill.
after a good small clean surf in the morning sunday, we headed back to franny’s place in cangoo. now we sit and decide where to surf next! such a rough life… we see desert point in the near future and probably sumbawa from there.
here’s a few good pics for the start of the season…
peace and love”
