Summary of the month : May saw Golden week for team SIJ which packed the camp gear and headed to Chikura Beach for 5 days of sun and surf, we got 2 days of great fun head high waves before the swell dissipated. Fantastic session at Chikura BEach when a low pressure system moved up from the south for the weekend, 6-8ft faces on some of the waves with some really nice lines being laid down by the SIJ team riders. We had Typhoon No.2 "Sondga" roll up the coast from the south bring a lot of rain with it and some great swell for around 4 days straight, Monday 30th May 2011, Inamura had some classsic Bali Style Conditions with double overhead left hand barrl waves up for grabs. If only it was like this everyday.
