The wind is blowing. The surf, if its there at all, is at Gerupuk or Mawi, and you just can’t be bothered with the crowds, the paddling, the effort. (Clearly
I’m a lazy surfer). So what’s a person to do in Kuta Lombok when there’s stuff all surf or you're that breed of non-surfer?
Learn to kite surf is the obvious first choice; instead of cursing the wind, embrace it! What Sup? Lombok Kite School instructors know their stuff, know their equipment and comply with international regulations to ensure your learning experience is thorough and safe.
Have a lesson and learn how to harness that wind, how to body-drag through the water and eventually, how to get going on a board. With strictly one-on-one
tuition using the latest technology, you'll be surprised at the progress you make. South Lombok is crazily blessed with some absolute gems of untapped
kite heaven; on a crowded bay there may be 3 kites out there. Shock horror. Welcome to our world. Moving on from Kuta soon? Don’t worry; these skills
will set you up wherever you go! As well as incredible waves or flat water oceans wide (Caribean, Australia, Pacific, Spain, Africa, you name it),
you’ll get to try out kiting on lakes (Italy, Switzerland), sand, and, in my humble opinion, the most epic of all, snow-kiting for all you hard-core
Northern European types. The world’s your kiting oyster, one blow at a time.
Day’s drawing to an end, you’ve made some new friends in town and want to do something unique together. Jump onboard Senja. Senja, meaning dusk in Indonesian, is a restored 12 m traditional boat, which What Sup? Lombok has lovingly refurbished and stationed
in Kuta Bay. Senja Sunset Cruises is the first of its kind in South Lombok,
and only recently launched. Spend up to 3 hours floating round Kuta Bay, lying on the deck on a cushion or in the nets over the water, listening to
tunes and jumping into the sea to cool off or have a swim in the turquoise waters. Thirsty? Not to worry, barman Yoko can sort you out with cold beers
or even cocktails. This boat goes daily except Monday, and can carry up to 20 guests each trip. Bookings are essential, and can be made via insta, fb, website or closest agent if you are in Kuta.
Finish off your day with dinner and catch some World Cup final action. Cold beers and big screens abound. Cafe Palate pulls in the big crowds and the most fervent of fans, or stop in to cheer your favourite team at The Mexican in Town while munching on a jackfruit burrito, Le Too Much upstairs for a French quiche and petit fours, Loka Lombok for the best chicken tacos & margaritas, or upstairs in the tree at Juice and Booze Bar for a carbonated vodka shot to remember!
