The checklist for my Bali surfing trip

I did a short checklist in my first post about my surfing trip to Bali. Here is my official checklist for the trip which I will be updating as I get things done. My checklist has been progressing better what I could have wished for.

Number 1
By far my most important thing to get done before I could even start to thinkg about anything else, is that I had to get a good place for my dog Ace to stay at when I’m away. I got it arranged quickly and I’m really happy because he will be staying with a really nice family that I have known for almost 20 years.

Number 2
Location where to stay, this is a tricky part. As there are a lot of nice places and I don’t want to make a decision where to stay for the whole time before my trip so I will get a hotel for a couple of nights booked when I arrive, with transport from the airport so I won’t have to hassle right away when I land, but can just relax with a driver waiting for me 🙂
Then I will just rent a motorbike and start exploring differents locations and try to find a more quiet place with as few tourists as possible, as I just want to relax away from all the chaos and busy streets filled with tourists.

Number 3
Airplane tickets, not yet there, but will get them soon 🙂

Number 4
I have been back on track in my trainings and I’m getting more fit everyday, so far my training has included lifting weights at the gym and swimming and diving. And it feels really good when I can notice that I’m starting to get strong and fit again!

Number 5
So far I have gotten my new sunglasses, Oakley Frogskins Crystal Collection with 24k Iridum lenses, as I accidenlty sat on my old ones and broke them, but I guess it was time to get new ones anyway as the old were about 10 years old. Then I also updated my GoPro to the new Hero6 Black, which I have been testing and playing around with. For my “real” camera I need to get an extra battery and maybe a new lens to get some surf shots from a distance.

Number 6
And then we have number 6 on the checklist, the part which was a maybe that turned into a MUST! The guys at Pinguino Surfboards are shaping a custom surfboard for me. Had a chat with Pauli, one of the founders, about my board. He wants to make a little bigger one as I’m a beginner to surfing and I want a small one that looks cool. But hey, look good, feel good and play good, so hoping that the looking cool will help me play good and surf over my own ability 🙂

The checklist:
  1. Get a good place for my dog to stay while I’m a way – check
  2. Get a good location and place to stay for my adventure – work in progress
  3. Get airplane tickets – as soon as nr 1 and 2 are checked
  4. Get physically ready for some waves, meaning a lot of training both strength and agility and balance and eating healthy, but even if eating healthy is important, I will still eat pizza once a while, life without pizza would suck – work in progress
  5. Get all the gear ready, need a new GoPro Camera and need to get a new lens for my camera to get some surf shots – work in progress
  6. This is a maybe… well… I guess it will probably turn into a MUST and not maybe… which is getting my own surfboard! – as I guessed…. the maybe turned into a MUST – check (waiting for it to get ready)
