Surfing accident.

Surfing at Nusa Lembongan, located off the island of Bali, Indonesia, during a two month surf trip. I sustained fall and landed on coral reef, causing a laceration to my anus of roughly 2 and 1/2 centimeters as well as severe cuts to my feet. Upon arriving back to Bali in a matter of several hours, I immediately received treament for my wounds at the Bali International Medical Center. They provided me with a thorough examination as well as an assotment of anti-biotics and other general medical supplies.
