Tubes in Bali

Bali 1993. Richie boy and I hired a guide to take us to this spot. The aussie swore it was surfable. We looked at the break. The waves were double-overhead, but we saw coral heads above the water. Richie Boy and I said 'no go'. The aussie said we were wimps. he took off on the first wave and stoved in his ribs on a gnarly coral head. He came out of the water holding his side. "Mates, I was wrong." Richie Boy and I agreed with him and took him to the hospital. He was a good Aussie and shared the painkillers with us. The bar at Tubes was much better that way.
