1. Doesn't anyone work?

2. Is Indonesia just filled with white Instagram influencers snapping pics all day long?

3. How do they keep each other out of the camera frame long enough to make it look like nobody else is there?

I don't follow any influencers or anyone living in Indonesia right now, so it doesn't feel like that to me. My advise is only follow people you enjoy following. Most people still have jobs and are working hard.

I've always enjoyed building and construction. Follow guys like this. There is actually tons of great content and inspiration on instagram, you are wasting your time if you're staring at dipshits posing on a beach all day.

I'll be able to slap it, but I'm not going to have time to flip it and rub it down

Posted in Bali for a couple weeks 🥰🌴 . Did you guys know Bali is where I call home most of the year?! . Since Bali is where my fiancé’s brand @kennyflowers_ manufactures - and is our favorite place in the world, we base here when we’re in between trips. . A lot of people know the vacation side of Bali, but don’t realize how LIVABLE it is! There are so many expats living over here, running businesses from abroad, starting brands, and creating this whole new entrepreneur community (I call them Balipreneurs 😉) . Bali is a total creative hub, and it evolves so much, so quickly. There’s always new coworking spaces, chic new bars and restaurants, a new hot sunset spot, and new places to explore. (Don’t worry I’m always keeping my bali guides up to date with the newest hot spots! Just google “Jetset Bali” 💕) It’s the perfect place for me to write and get caught up on the biz side of the blog in between travels! . And when I need a break from all that... this is the view 🌴🌺 I mean... can’t beat it 🥰. . #Bali #Uluwatu #jetsetpresets

I've lost interest in going to Indo. I've accepted I may never go. The long travel. The crowds. I've heard unless you are really lucky, it is a fooking zoo. 30 guys on every peak. Serious rippers too. Probably a tight takeoff. Not much room for error on shallow reefs.

Nearing 50, lengthy times out of the water due to work, pollution, onshores means I'm not surfing good and not feeling confident. Would like to go after a good run of surf at home but thought of 8-10 foot (faces) heaving tubes in 3 feet of water, man I just dont know.

Totally agree

The time to go is when you are 20

Surfing is kind of a sport for rich douchebag kids with money like skiing

I'll take my 4 hour direct flight to Huatulco and post up at one of 5 empty points with good clean surf and 85 degree water.

Serious question...

Why do care and why does other peoples’ supposedly “better” lives bother you?

Is it just envy or is their more to it?
