Surfing Bali

Uluwatu is the farthest most tip of the bukit and pretty much recieves all swells. The long reef offers many different peaks .There are 6 sections -Temples is a bit of a paddle from the main peak so tends to be less busy. Peak is right next to temples and seems to be breaking much more these days than the main peak .The main  Peak is immediately in front of you as you paddle out of the cave and is a consistent wave that works at all tides. Racetracks is a fast racy wave that works best at mid to low tide . The bombie will break on the biggest swells and is rideable at up to 20′ or even bigger. Outside corners breaks on the biggest swells.

Padang Padang
Padang Padang left is known as the balinese pipeline. It is a very fast barrelling wave with some days where you might be able to get a turn or 2 in. Pandang breaks over a shallow coral reef and is only for expert surfers best at mid tide.
Padang Padang right is a very easy wave and is suitable for beginners. This is a perfect surf spot for learner surfers to progress from riding white water to green unbroken waves.

Impossibles is a fast racy wave , Hence its name. There are 3 seperate peaks on this reef which breaks up the crowds. On the right conditions with a good size swell and offshore wind it is possible for the sections to link up and to get a ride of a mile or more to the warungs at bingin.

Bingin works at around mid tide. It is a very consistent wave and throws out many perfect barrels. If you want to practice barrel riding lefts – bingin could be the perfect location. At low tide it can be very shallow and for expert surfers only. At high tide the wave can break very soft and is where the bali children learn to surf. Bingin is run by local surfers so have some respect when surfing here.

Dreamland is a beautiful white sand beach just a short walk from Bingin at low tide. There are many different breaks here , mainly for beginners unless its big. Theres an  A frame peak that works best at low tide on a big swell.

Balangan is the next break along from dreamland and is within walking distance. It is a fast long left hand reef break which rarely has crowds and works best on high tides with big swells.
