Is it just about surfing??sabtain
Thanks for dropping in again for our latest update on all the shenanigans that go on here at Damai Bungalows, 30kms south of krui on the surfing coast of south sumatra
April came round quick & we ushered in our 1st big group for the season. staff were excited to kick into gear again & enjoy the 2012 season. the Young’s, Dewhurts’s, Brown’s & Tomlinson’s all turned up together followed shortly after by the Power’s & got right into it together. its amazing how often differents groups arrive & quickly bond, it’s a common interest in surfing & having a good time here at Damai that provides soooo many good times.
the guys sat through an emormous swell that hit indo early april which pretty much blew out most spots. which leads to our question
” is it all about surfing?”
when we have great guests here we’d have to say “no”. sure we’re all here to surf south sumatra’s numerous waves, but there is a bit more to it. for guests looking to wind down & enjoy their holiday with new & old friends there is always something on the cards to do. our 1st group hooked it pretty much everything as well as the waves. chooky taking the girls to the markets, walking through the villages & down back roads to see how everyone lives here, taking a guided nature walk through rice fields & damar plantations, snorking the reefs, beach walks, drives up & down the coast to see the surrounding area as well as fishing in local perahu’s kept everyone busy
we also helped celebrate Billy’s 18th birthday here, Ayu & the staff bought out the big guns food wise, we invited our neighbours over, the beer & brandy started to flow, along with the tunes. we capped the night off with a performance from our local traditional girls dance troup & we reckon a great night was had by all. check out some of the photo’s
we’ve also finished our new viewing deck, big thanks to the guests for putting up with the “planer birds” & the “sander birds” 😉
we were also visited by the guys & girls from the indonesian telvision show JEJAK PETUALANG from trans 7. they we’re in the area putting together an episode showcasting the west lampung province. to Putri & Indri, we thank you for coming & you were both a pleasure to host. we took them for a surf lesson & had a ball. Putri also made to her feet at least 1/2 a dozen times which was the goal & after saying ‘guarenteed’ was a bit of a refief as well…. hahaha
so is it all about surfing?? sure surfing the waves here south sumatra is primary in our thoughts, but it definitely isn’t all we can offer the punters here at Damai. it really is up to the punters as to how busy or lazy they want their holiday to be. as we write we have a new swell dawning on us & all the punters are amping for what looks like a good swell for the next few days. thanks again for checking in with us & we’ll be back again soon to keep you all up to date from Damai Bungalows.
peace ayu & the staff……………
