Hi, Guys - maybe the guys who have been to Lakey recently can advise me...
I'm trying to decide between Lampung / Krui in S Sumatra and Lakey for the second week of my holiday (first week's in Bali).
I would so dig to go to the volcano-and-palm heaven that is Krui, but unsure about the slight cross-shore to the Trades, as well as the Bali-Jakarta, Jakarta-Lampung, 5-6 hours in bemo as opposed to Bali-Sumbawa, 2 hrs in bemo to consistently offshore Lakey.
What I want to know is, is Lakey like crowded Long Beach nowadays (going in 2nd half of July)? Will I still have relatively uncrowded Lakey Right or Pipe while the big dicks are fighting over Lakey left? If I take the mission to Periscopes (and my board doesn't get stolen en route), will it be worth it - or will I find three hotels' worth of Aussie kite surfers claiming it?
Thanks guys - bring the good info on - this is driving me crazy
