Is there a clever double meaning in this comment that I'm not picking up on?

Is there travel restrictions in place or does Kelly have his own super yacht or private jet?

As a professional athlete he's able to enter Indonesia on a work visa, and the US has fewer exit restrictions than Oz.

Gee you wouldn't want it much more crowded than that if you wanted to catch a few waves. Very limited take off spot, especially when you have those ripping guys sitting on the inside of the pack.

I wouldn't paddle out if I saw a crowd like that

PS - despite the other comments regarding Kelly's surfing and the mediocrity of this clip, how good are those cutback to drift back to the white water that Kelly's so good at?

Too many bintangs and nasi goreng, but if I'm that fit when I'm Kelly's age I will be a very happy wannabe goat...

Not hard Bodhi just dont drink a lot eat basically decent food stay active
and mostly surf heaps. I saw slater a lot in January and he was a lean mean
surfing machine and I thought he was super health conscious with diet.

That surf looks fun as. I think that was Rizal out there too (with the orange board).

As much as I love the GOAT, that was one of the lamest clips to ever grace these hallowed pages. Note to stu - sometimes you can say 'no'.

Naahhhh ! that wasnt Kelly!
Tell me that was a guy who looks like Slater and is an intermediate surfer on hols in Bali.

Wasnt it......?
Why am I seeing ordinary Kelly?
I can get that at my local. Not here.

Looks like Kelly has been eating all the nasi gorengs. He better be careful at his age. Dad bods take time to get rid of.

Hey Floating, I don't know if you were having a dig.
But no need.
I wish I had the talent in his big toe.
That will do me.
Yeah, I am not saying he dropped his game. I guess I am not used to see him as a commoner , like myself. That surfing is not what I am used to with him.
The man is a legend no matter where you sit with him. No doubt.

Fark, there's one turn of Slaters in this clip where he hacks off the top and whips it back into the pocket that's so brutal and fast, you could almost miss it. Loved seeing him going over the falls on the under the lip takeoff. Even the greatest doesn't get it right all the time. Stryder lookin stylish.

Really enjoy SOB clips. Not flash editing, just good raw clips....
Still reckon Slater is ripping, good to see some waves of his that would not usually make the final surf movie clip...

He can't be worried about Covid, quote from Baliwaves report today.

I should also just give you a heads up on the “ground level” situation here in Bali. Up in Canggu this morning the traffic was just as thick and a crazy as you know it to be. I don’t think it’s from Domestic tourism it’s more like most shops resto’s and other businesses are open as per normal in better days. But driving back home through Legian and Kuta / Tuban it was still all but empty. 90% of shops and small business that are usually hustling and bustling are all closed. This could be helping us a little bit as nothing is opened to attract the domestic tourists. Since the opening of Bali to domestic tourists mostly coming from Java (hardest hit by the Corona Virus) Bali’s new positive cases have almost gone through the roof. Indonesia. The national Covid-19 statistics are getting worse by the week. Hopefully our Governor will come to Bali’s rescue. The sooner we get these numbers under control the sooner Bali can return to it’s normal, the normal that we all love so much.

I much prefer these kind of clips. Like you're almost there watching a real line-up.

It doesn't look like they're taking off that deep, getting around sections pretty easily, but how's the pack on the shoulder....my goodness.

Im thinking Kellys surfing is super relaxed and fun. Its good to see kelly falling, being to deep and basically being human. Im thanking swellnet for posting this, its all fun, and thats what suring in Indo should be.
Im curious, does anyone know who the water photographer is, i reckon some of the water footage would be good to see!!
PS - Rizals backhand is AMAZING!
