Surfing and Partying in Kuta, Bali

After a week or two relaxing in Ubud, I moved down to Kuta to check out the surfing and partying scene. Initially I went down with friend Cynthia to surf for a few days – but stayed longer to meet up with Jessica and friends to do a bit of market research on bars in the area. A few pics from our explorations of Kuta – trashy club scene and all.

Learning to surf with Cynthia. Local surf instructor Edwin naturally gave me the biggest, easiest surfboard to learn on.

Staying in the Kuta Beach Heritage Hotel with Jessica, we had our own rooftop pool, and a great location.

First stop of the night was the Hard Rock Hotel. Not the classiest of places, however the all-Indonesian cover band was surprisingly well rehearsed.

Sunset at El Kabron, a bit south in Uluwatu.

Moving on to Sky Bar at the Mulia Resort. The place is so big that they took us by golf cart from the valet station to the beachside bar.

And of course, finished in the horribly trashy Sky Garden – but still had fun.
