I seriously wish I could spend the rest of my life right here in Batu Karas! Surfing perfect waves one after the other was absolutely incredible! Even when I wasn’t in the water there was plenty to do, including cruising around in the Villa Monyet surf mobile, exploring secret beaches, riding a scooter over a rickety old bridge made entirely from bamboo and volunteering in a local turtle conservation centre. In a word… Or three : thumps up times!
This week was probably one of the greatest weeks of my life! Honestly, what could be better than surfing for days in Batu Karas, visiting the oldest Buddhist temple in the world, killing time with friends in one of Jogjakarta’s largest malls and taking in the view at Kalibiru atop a bamboo platform suspended high in the trees.
