any of our guests here at damai bungalows in 2011 would remember our little mate RENDY. son of salma, part of our kitchen staff. rendy normally hangs around damai after school each day, he loves to go surfing with the guests or help out around the place. he has a quiet nature & is very polite, the guests love him hanging around and so do we.
rendy never ask’s for things, but generally the guests will blow him out with spare wax, leggies, sunnies or clothes. he says thank you & the guests get the buzz of helping out a terrific young bloke.
so imagine his STOKE when last night a crew from stockon, ben, todd, matt & adam, with particular mention to todd, blew rendy out with a near new 5’10, 17 3/4 , 2 1/8 peter mccabe hand shape board. to see his eyes light up in wonderment was a bit tear jerking to be honest.
thanks boys for your generosity towards rendy, you didn’t just make his day, you’ve made his whole 12 years!!!
now in consultation with his mum, the boys, ayu & myself, we decided that such a huge gift would be best earned by our little mate. no, he doesn’t have to work the bar till he’s 21 or anything like that. rendy has his mid year school exams coming up over the next fortnight, so, if he knuckles down & does his best to get good results, he gets the board. it’s win win, he gets good results which benefit him, he then gets a cracking new board as a reward for his efforts. nothing’s for nothing in this world & we hope rendy learns a little life lesson in it all. he’ll get the board anyway but a little incentive goes a long way.
once again a huge thanks to the stockton guys for sharing the stoke around……..
we’ll keep ya’s posted on how he goes, and no doubt some photo’s of him tearing up the waves here at ujung bocor, south sumatra………
peace ayu & jas……
