Nyepi New Year

It was a big night in Bali last night with the start of the Nyepi (Bali New Year) celebrations. The whole Island shuts down from sunrise today till sunrise tomorrow in an effort to rid Bali of evil spirits for another year.

Jim is in Bali and sent back shots of some floats
that hit the street outside his local. Made of papier mache and bamboo, these monsters are supposed to scare the evil spirits up to the sky. At sunset all lights are left off so the spirits can't find their way back down to earth. Today everyone is indoors - no electricity allowed, no cars, no computers... and no surfing!

... wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of this chick ...

...this guy's been drinking some pretty evil spirits...

... getting in the line up to watch the parade...

waaay deep

Alex Gibson got up close and personal with Kerry Down when the big swells hit the Central Coast a few weeks back.

Not long after this shot was taken, Kerry got a bit too close to the reef and ended up with a severed artery & 10 stitches in his hand. That's one way to get out of painting the house mate.
