Wednesday, April 20th (Lombok Day 4)

  • We woke up to our alarm at 6:30am, announcing our morning surf session at Segar Beach.
  • The waves were pumping when we arrived, so we decided to try the second break at Segar: a right-hander that curls a bit deeper than the left-handed point break that we surfed the evening before.
  • It quickly became apparent, however, that we we had bitten off more than we could chew.
  • Cory paddled back over to the more familiar left-hander after a few minutes, while I persisted stubbornly trying to catch a deep wave.
  • After 2 hours of getting smashed with only one ride to show for it, I was on the verge of calling it a morning.
  • At this moment I caught one of the best waves of our time in Indonesia, taking the wave heel-side and fitting in several sweeping turns on the face before ejecting close to shore.
  • It was a great way to end the session and set an optimisti tone for the rest of the day.
  • The rest of the morning and afternoon was spent reading, writing, and relaxing, with a quick stop at a nearby Warung for lunch.
  • We returned to Segar Beach just after 4pm, only to spend the next half hour sitting on the sand waiting for the tide to come in.
  • Once the locals started surfing we figured the tide had come in enough (though a ton of reef was still showing), so we strapped up and made the sharp barefoot walk over the coral into the waves. 
  • We surfed until after sunset with many fun rides and no incidents.
  • Back at our homestay, we freshened up then waited out a quick but violent downpour before walking to Warung Nana where we had our usual vegetable curry dinner.
  • We stopped by an Alpha Mart on the way back to pick up some candy snacks then had an easy evening watching videos and reading in our room.
