    Surfing factor:  (0 of  3)
    "Saving the world" factor: 🏄🏄🏄 (3 of  3)

    Detailed notes:
    Today I am happy to talk about one of my favorite discoveries of 2017: Effective Altruism and my trip to the 3-day conference "The Effective Altruism Global in London" in November 2017. First a brief introduction into the topic and then some short interviews with participants of the conference. 

    What is effective altruism?
    Effective altruism is a philosophy and social movement that has the goal to use scientific data to find the most effective ways to create benefits for others. To use one example: an often recommended charity in the contact of effective altruism is the against malaria foundation which works on the cause to protect people from malaria. For every about 4 USD donated they will by and distribute a mosquito net, and statistically for every 4000 EUR donated, they will prevent one person’s death from malaria.

    What is the EA global conference London?
    Part of an annual series of effective altruism conferences, in 2017 there was one in San Francisco, Boston and the one I visited in London. With about 500 participants and maybe 50 speakers, presentation and workshops.

    Surfing factor: 🏄🏄🏄 (3 of 3)
    "Saving the world" factor: (0 of 3)

    Detailed notes:
    I just got back from Sumbawa. Here how to plan a surf trip to this amazing corner, and some reasons why you might to go there:

    A) Reasons to go on a surf trip to West Sumbawa.
    1 stunning and empty beaches just for you
    2 the local people and other travelers
    3 the relax- and disconnect factor
    Other: cheap, snorkeling, hiking up some mountains or to waterfalls and beaches, local food, seafood, nice climate, undeveloped and nature & monkeys. And, the surfing...

    B) The surfing
    World class waves like Scar Reef, Super Sucks, Yo-Yos, etc.
    Empty waves
    3 main zones: bay of Scar Reef, Super Sucks ay and Yo-Yos/Tropicals
    Room for exploring
    Intermediate waves, eg. Phantoms or downtowns and little biging
    All spots are reef, nice mix of lefts and rights
    Warm water temperature of about 27-28 degrees C
    Beautiful scenery
    Surfing hours are limited because of tides
    Season: most of the year wind, se, dry April to September with most swell
    My favorite: beach of Scar Reef at the village Jelenga, a left called Little Binging, and Phantoms/Downtowns. Very quiet and relaxing, setting, nice people

    C) What special stuff to bring?
    Limited supply, bring your stuff
    Rashguard and 1-2mm vest
    Strong sun protection
    Malaria protection optional and mosquito protection
    Strong and new leash
    Google maps offline in your phone
    Sim card insertable mobile
    Reef cut stuff

    D How to get there?
    Some flight options to Sumbawa Sumbawa Besar or Lombok Selaparang Int. Airport
    Then own transport or taxi
    Or/and:
    Rent a scooter in Bali or Lombok or car
    Route Bali to Padang Bai, 5 hour ferry to Lembar for 70 EUR with car
    Or too avoid traffic and hassle, rental car in Lombok for less than 30 eur/day
    Then to the east side in Lombok in about 3 hour

    E ) Other random info
    2 nice places to stay in Jelenga:
    Alam Dita or Harrys Homestay
    And Santai Beach Bungalows at Yo-Yos
    Refill your plastic water bottles
    Say "No" to plastic bags

    E) "High" and "low" lights
    Lowlights:
    1 long way to get there
    3 poor infrastructure and medical options
    3 limited beer (=Bintang) supply

    Highlights:
    1 Jelenga time: relax
    2 great surfing
    3 nice local people
