That's a good question. I hope to go Kuta with my wife, 2 yr old son and 17 yr old daughter next year. I will go to Mawi with my 17 yr old daughter and instruct her to stay near the area where we park and the friendly locals (seriously) watch our stuff. She is not to venture to other bays without me. That, I think is safe. It's a beautiful bay. I look forward to returning and surfing where I used to with my friend Michael, whose ashes are now in the ocean there. I say go.
