B A L I with Juchey and Blake

Fellas, You are living the dream!
So What are your top 3 things to do in Bali ?
Well to narrow it down I would say most importantly –
Get lost and adventure without a plan and surf as many different breaks along the way as possible! No two waves are the same which is why we as surfers thrive on exploring the unknown.
Embrace the culture to the fullest by learning the native language Bahasa, enabling one to connect with the people that make this place so amazing.
Last but not least- film and share what we find and experience along the way..
Without giving the exact locations away of course haha.
This is a tricky one as there are a lot more than 3 things, but to give you the answer would be. 1, load up the scooter with all the gear, my chick, my mates aka brother bung Blake ! The boards and just drive. 2. Take time to stop, look and listen, talk Bahasa to a local and learn from their experiences. Finally, number 3 would be to film her beauty, I like to go beyond my “comfort zone” to get the shot! I love to put myself in places and situations that most wouldn’t. Something that Blake and I share closely, our willingness to not question where we go always pays dividends. What I love about here is that nothing is the same, every time you go somewhere different on the island, you can expect some form of change, in either the ocean or the terrain. On one side of the island you have the incredible black sands and on the other the polar opposite with white sand and crystal clear water. There are volcanos, infinite islands, jungles, waterfalls, forests, underwater caves and more.
No doubt at all then that Bali is the ultimate adventurers paradise!
How long are you spending in and around Bali ?
We’ll for me, the past 10 years in Australia has been consumed by studies, work (running my own company Juchey Productions) and figuring out what it really what it was that I wanted to do with myself. I’d just proposed to my partner Rhianne we were ready to push the boundaries and grow. So I asked her, “want to move to Bali” being the mad chickka that she is, she said “yep” so we sold up and decided that it was time to go for it. We wanted to challenge ourselves and most of all live
Well I have a villa on a 3 year lease in which I share with my two dogs and like minded people from all over the world!
At this stage of my life I see myself Frothing here for many years to come
Don’t blame you blake, Why would you want to leave haha
Any interesting stories to share with everyone ?
Jaran & Blake - Hmm maybe over a Bintang if you stop by haha
Hahaha! Fair enough then we will hold you to that next time we are there
Tell us about this video, Where was it shot? What was the plan for the day and what are your thoughts on the new LKI Range?
This video was shot in the mid to northern surrounds of the island, we searched the coastline looking for new spots, places to surf/shoot and people to meet. This trip was a last minute decision, as is many of our best trips. We decided the night before to hire a beat up Suzuki ($12 a day) and just drive. There were no plans, we made sure we had the boards, our LKI gear and the camera equipment and just went for it. We scored incredible waves, laughed out heads off and had a ripping time. Best part was, we didn’t have to be anywhere in particular. If we saw something we would stop. We ensured that we went off the main road, we drove through small villages, palm forests, rice fields and lived it.
The LKI gear is epic, the boardies are the perfect fit and have plenty of stretch in them.
The backpacks are insane, literally held all camera the gear and more!
Great work by LKI a huge thanks and can’t wait to rep and be apart of the live your lifestyle crew.
Sounds like the perfect day to us! Thank you for the time legends,
But I think its time for you guys to hit the barrels and keep on Adventuring.
