This is a picture of the Dude in the wilds of Dreamland, Bali, June 2007. If you look closely you can see a reflection of the ancient spirits of the Bukit penninsula in his sunglasses. The Dude is a wise sage of few words, on realising the dropping swell was not going to produce ridable waves at Dreamland he led the OldFartSurfer and the Young Dude on a paddle to Balangan. The Dude led the way there and all the way back with superior paddle power. The ladies in the masssage shop across from our apartment in Legian worked wonders on our tired shoulders later that day.
