WATERBOM! (Keira’s big day . . .)
Miss K hit the Seminyak boutiques w/ Mom and melted me down in this number :)

1. As always check out the flickr sets and photosteams for more pics — they are linked in the blog menu :)
2. For the surf-y part stuff of these posts — the detailed context/intro is HERE — a series of posts on the surf gig and more. Used to be one post, and of course turned into a giant post. Now broken up by days :) It will probably change again!
Woke up feeling our big night out a bit. Hit the beach and 8-12 foot beach break close outs were the order of the day . . . Started walking south looking for a manageable peak or shoulder and I”m not gonna lie some slightly mellower conditions to get into. Took a while to find it, got to practice my duck diving and getting outside skills for sure, and breath holding / hold downs, etc. Finally found my goldilocks (just right) zone, and it was so consistent I took of on 20 waves in 2 hours which is some kind of record for me. Short rides but didn’t care.
We checked out of our seminyak villa and plan was hit Waterbom waterslide/park. Big tourist attraction. But shockingly well reviewed by all. For good reason. It was a blast and they do a good job. Everyone had a blast — and Keira shocked me by stepping up to the “smash down” slide which is a full on free fall bit — I made Megan video us . . . Keira is a must watch, yes that is cautious Keira doing 50mph dropping 100meters! (first link is me then second is keira following, this vid is of our 3rd time down — when I dropped it the first time I actually didn’t think she was going to do it . . .)
It was super fun, we all got exhausted climbing the towers, and we shut the place down. Traffic and a quick grocery run later and back at Villa Bayu on the Bukit around 7pm . . . all exhausted but happy on a big day.
