This was a crazy week for me in West Java. We had some perfect waves. Some perfect barrels. We had some days that were too big and the wave wasn’t working at all. And I got a vicious tropical fever. After 3 nights of it I finally went to both a western medicine doctor and had a traditional healer perform cupping on my back.
The waves have been solid over all. Most everyday has been head high to head and a half since my last report. There were two days where it was simply too big to surf Cimaja (today and last Friday). Frequent rains have made the water pretty gross.
The forecast is for the waves to get huge again this week. I’m off to Bali tomorrow, so I won’t see what it does here, but I imagine it’ll be nuts in Bali as well. I’ll likely take a pass on these monsters.
