Road Trip to Java

My motorbike journey from Bali to Java was pretty eventful, despite the lack of pumping waves upon arrival, the quick turnaround the following afternoon, and the soreness of my behind from sitting on the back of a motorbike for so long. Nonetheless, it was an enjoyable experience that I may never do again!
It's currently Ramadan, the most important month of the Islamic calendar when Muslims around the world fast in the name of Allah in a quest to learn patience and foster spirituality. Indonesia has the largest Muslim population of any country in the world, something that is more than apparent in Java; we frequently passed mosques like the one below on our journey.
I paddled out for one long surf session in Java the morning we arrived, though it was pretty much 5-6 foot closeouts. I still had a really fun surf, enjoying the beautifully clean water and the empty lineup.
