Bali Surf Spots
Bali has over 20 top-quality breaks on the Southwest and Southeast coasts of the island and around the Bukit Peninsula. Some of these breaks like Padang Padang and Uluwatu are world class barrelling reef breaks. Others range from good fun, like the beach breaks around Kuta and Sanur, to serious tubular waves. Bali gets the full force of southern ocean swells directly from the Antarctic, its south-west and south-east coasts being littered with surf spots. The winter months (June-Sept) are preferred for their perfect surf conditions on the West side of Bali. However, this means that these are also the most crowded times. From Oct-May still offer good waves. Bali, unlike other areas of Indonesia where all spots are heavy reef breaks for experienced surfers, actually has a lot of beach breaks accessible to all.- Padang Padang: “The balinese pipeline”. Left . Very fast long barrelling. Breaks over a shallow coral reef and is only for expert Surfers.
- Padang Padang Rights: Perfect for beginners. Long slow unbroken waves. Breaks in front of a beautiful white sandy beach. Ideal aswell for sunbathing and watching the sunset
- Impossibles: Left. Fast racy wave. Reef Coral break with 3 seperate peaks that can link up with good conditions. Just for Experts or Kamikaze Surfers !!
- Uluwatu: Left. Reef Coral break. Very consistent with many different peaks which all turn on at different tide stages. Experts only.
- Dreamland: Right and left. Beautifull Beach break that works at different tides and is suitable for novice Surfers.
- Balangan: Left. Reef Coral break on a beautiful and very quiet white sandy beach. Suitable for all surfers.

The emerald islands of the Indonesian archipelago have for centuries lured everyone, from missionaries to pirates, traders and more recently to tourists and backpackers. The sandalwood and spice breezes, magnificent beaches, mountains and volcanoes of these islands acting as a magnet to both ancient and modern travellers. But Indonesia is also the ultimate surfer's paradise, with hundreds of islands and unknown waves waiting to be discovered. The climate is tropical and has two main seasons: from November to march and from June to October.
Although Bali is relatively small (90 miles long and 48 miles wide), it is densely populated and culturally and economically one of the most important islands of Indonesia. Bali has more than 3 million people, a great variety of countryside and probably more than 10,000 temples. While Bali may no longer be the "last frontier" surf destination, it still lies at the heart of the Indonesian surf experience, the quality of its waves and "Bali Hai" lifestyle attracting surfers from all over the world. It is also a mandatory stop for anyone on their Indo trip to the adjacent G-Land, Lombok or Sumbawa surf spots. Bali is an island of high volcanoes, rice fields, majestic temples and beautiful beaches which has maintained its traditions very well alive, but you will equally find McDonalds, surfshops, cheap restaurants, bars and plenty of nightlife in Kuta.
Tropical. Warm waters all year long ! Good waves all year long!
Bali is a tropical island with temperatures ranging from 21 to 33°C. Dry season lasts from April until September, and that means sunshine every day. Wet season lasts from December until March, and at least a short daily shower is common but still sunny and great waves all day long!!! Still, temperatures mostly remain tropical. So don’t take too many clothes! Except for one long sleeve outfit and the right shoes for hiking the volcano, shorts and tee shirts are more than enough. Besides, shopping is a must on Bali! Water temperature is a constant 28°C, so you will mostly surf in shorts. At chilly morning sessions you will sometimes wear a lycra shirt, but a neoprene shorty is not really necessary.
Bali Denpasar International Airport (DPS)
Garuda, Singapore, Qantas + major airlines
You need a visa for entering Indonesia, which you can do on arrival in Bali airport for EUR 35.-. It is only valid for 30 days, so if you plan to stay longer please contact the Indonesian embassy in your country or your travel agent for further details. Note that your passport has to be valid for more than 6 months after leaving Indonesia.
Money / ATM / Credit cards
Indonesian Rupiah (IDR) is the currency on Bali. All money changers change EUR, but if you don’t want to take too much cash with you, there are plenty of ATM machines which accept any credit or ATM (Maestro) cards from home. Most of the shops and restaurants accept credit cards as well.
Medical care is fine here on Bali. The most important personal first aid for cuts and wounds, common travel medication and sunscreen is still a very good idea and saves you valuable holiday time. Contact your doctor or homeopathist for vaccinations or us for further advice.
Packing Slip for Advanced Travellers
Along with your personal stuff take plenty of sunscreen with you. The risk of Malaria is still very low. In any case ask you doctor before going to Bali. Do not bring too much clothing with you, because we are sure that you are going to shop a lot. There are also a lot of cheap opportunities to wash your stuff.

I want to thank you for your patience & help in organising my trip to the Padang Surfcamp, Bali.
I had the best holiday EVER :-) !
Josh & Maggie were fantastic people & the camp exceeded my expectations by far. Everybody was so friendly & chilled, I felt really comfortable.
As for the actual surfing, well, I'm hooked now!
You assured me that by the end of my week I'd be able to surf & thanks to Josh's patience & nature I managed to catch a wave & stand up for about 1 min by the end of my 6 days!!! Josh said If I'd of been there for 2 weeks I could have mastered it ! Defo need to go again.
So, big thanks to you for pointing me in the right direction in the first place & please make it known how impressed I was with this camp.
Hope to deal with you again!
Ciao Ciao Tina.
