The parents of a New Zealand surfer, found dead in suspicious circumstances on a popular Bali beach, say their son died from head injuries.

The body of Jordan Lucas, 30, was found on Uluwatu beach by a fisherman last week.

His parents are in Bali and have met police officers investigating the death.

A family friend, Robert Kirkwood, says they have confirmed he died from a head injury.

Mr Kirkwood says police in Bali are treating the case as a homicide.
