G-Land News July 20th 2010 By Bretto
G-Land was still good again today! We have been blessed and it just hasn’t stopped. So many good waves, low tide and high tide and crowd is very minimal. Slightly smaller than yesterday but still 6ft sets. Only slept 3 hours last night. I went to G-Land surf camp to check my photos and there was a guy there who had hurt his hip in the surf.
He was in alot of pain and asked me to help him. He was in too much pain to get the bus or boat back to Bali and wanted the chopper to come and get him. I was on the phone all night to his insurance company, BIMC, and, AIR BALI trying to coordinate the evacuation. The chopper was here by 11:00am the next morning. It turns out his hip was broken aswell as a broken neck of femur. There were no lumps or deformities to tell. He was just in alot of pain so I didn’t want to chance there being anything major. He went in for surgery last night.
