After a few years living on this island the story about the waves became more a fairytale. There were waves but not like the monster waves, 4 meters high, like the locals told us before. It looked like the story become bigger and also the waves with the time.
But today the fairytale became real. The surf break of Gili Air, close the Oceans 5 dive resort and the harbor, had enormous waves. The biggest waves were 3 till 4 meters high. Perfect conditions for all the experienced surfers to show us their tricks.
Lots of locals and tourist were waiting in the water, waiting for their perfect wave, waiting for their perfect run. A few of them were to scared to surf, the waves were to steep and to high. But if they went for a run, it was really excited to see them surf.
Surfing on Gili Air, Gili Islands is not a fairytale, its real!
