Dermott Brereton has revealed he nearly drowned in punishing surf in Bali last month before he was pulled to safety by a fellow surfer.
This short video features Balinese surfers such as Mega Semadhi, Agus Sumertayasa, Agus Julyantara, Koki Hendrawan, Raditya Rondi, Alik Rudiarta, Mukhlis Anwar and two Malaysian surfers Azmi Awang and Didaqt Musadiq. Most of the footage was filmed at Padang Padang, Bingin and Impossibles.
Been there done that, I know, but really, there is nowhere even similar to Bali. It’s not Bali’s fault that yobbos by the score, rank footy teams on drunken end of season trips, and other demented, culture blind knuckleheads visit the “Island of the Gods”. I wish they didn’t, but that doesn’t mean the essential Bali is finished; it’s actually the same as it ever was.
