Intermediate surf guiding at Pandawa

The swell was picking up today and many of the southern reef breaks on the Bukit were on fire. This one, in particular, is famous amongst Indonesia’s elite surfers as one of the best training grounds. The wave’s fast pace and steep walls provide perfect ramps for practising airs and high-speed manoeuvres.

Indonesia’s pro surfers have been on the rise for the last few years. With this many different waves, from peaky beach breaks to hollow and heavy barrels, Bali offers everything a professional surfer needs to have in his or her repertoire. As an intermediate surfer who is just starting to improve his or her surfing skills, watching these guys is amazing, but also very inspiring.

Intermediate surf guiding at Pandawa

This rainy season has been a dream for all surfers who favour small waves over big heavy barrels. The small swell continues to deliver the perfect conditions for beginner and intermediate surfers. Not only for those but also for advanced surfers, there are still plenty of good waves out there. Pandawa is one of those spots where, as an advanced or as an intermediate surfer, you can find suitable waves for your surfing level.

Pick the right wave and you will have a fast, steep wall in front of you where you can do tight turns and even airs on some occasions. If you are an intermediate surfer, with the right guidance of a professional surf guide, you will be able to catch user friendly, but still challenging enough waves to push your surfing skills to the next level. Tomorrow, there will be a new, bigger swell arriving from the south. With stronger winds blowing from the west, the east side of the Bukit will be the best choice for the weekend.

Beginner Surf Lessons at Geger

The new swell arrived today and finally brought us bigger waves again. With almost no wind at all, the south and east sides of the Bukit were favoured by most of the surfers, leaving Nusa Dua uncrowded. We took the opportunity of a nearly empty line-up to choose the best waves of the sets, so far had the best session of this week.

The big channel makes it easy to get out to the line-up. If it is like today, with almost nobody else there, you can catch as many waves as you can paddle for. A high wave count means more practice, the more practice you get the faster you will improve your surfing skills.

Beginner Surf Lessons at Greenball

Sunny weather, blue sky and crystal clear water is great recipe for happiness. Add a beautiful beach and a consistent reef break to it, and you are set for a perfect start to the day. Green Bowl is one of those surf spots which gets plenty of swell and has waves almost every day.

A fun left breaking wave is peeling over the reef on a lower tide, while on a mid-tide, the right breaking wave on the other side of the channel comes to life. This spot offers a user-friendly playground when the waves are small. It is not uncommon though to be surprised by bigger sets. Those can be double in wave size due to the exposed southern location of the surf spot. Ideal for those who like to challenge themselves from time to time.

Beginner Surf Lessons at Geger Left

A big part of surfing is to explore new surf spots and find opportunities to score the best wave of your life. Every day is different and you never know exactly how the session will turn out. But with the right knowledge and expertise of professional surf guides, you can be sure to find the best conditions for your surfing level.

Nusa Dua was great today due to the offshore wind conditions and clean shoulder high waves. It is the perfect location to start surfing the more challenging reef breaks of Bali. Consistently breaking sets and a small crowd made the wave choice easy, and everyone got their wave of the day.

Beginner Surf Lessons at Balangan

The secret to happiness might be different for some people, but for us, it is most certainly the good waves of Bali. No matter if you are a beginner or advanced surfer, everyone can find the perfect wave for their surfing level. Today, Balangan was the right choice to go and practice catching green waves and start doing the first turns.

Tomorrow, a new swell from the south will bring bigger waves again, and with all the practice done the last few days, it is time to put the new surfing skills to the test. Challenge yourself from time to time, and you will be amazed at what you can achieve, in and out of the water.

Beginner Surf Lessons at Padang Padang

There is little doubt that this wave is one of the best learning grounds to improve your surfing level. A gently breaking peak, like this one, is perfect for practising your first turns on a green wave. Even though it was a bit choppy due to the stormy weather last night, the incoming waves were enjoyable all the way to the beach.

Learning how to surf is not only about learning the right technique, but also getting to know the ocean, its waves and even yourself. In the first session in the line-up, catching green waves will show you how fit you are and how far you can push your limits, in a safe and fun way.

Beginner Surf Lessons at Pandawa

The new year welcomed us with offshore winds and shoulder high set waves at one of our favourite surf breaks on the Bukit. A not too big and friendly crowd made this session very enjoyable. Among the local rippers were some of Indonesia’s best surfers. Just seeing these talents fly through the air and doing massive turns on such waves, is just incredible.

Not only did the Pros have fun, but many other surfers, experts and intermediates were having lots of waves to practise their surfing skills. On this kind of wave, you need to be able to generate lots of speed to make it around the section and onto the clean face of the wave. Once there, enjoy the ride!

Intermediate surf guiding at Geger

After a few days of Christmas celebrations, we were enjoying the east coast of Bali again. Today, Nusa Dua was the best place to go due to the strong wind from the west. Even though the waves were not that big, they had enough power to give you a fast and challenging ride. Steep, head high walls and offshore wind conditions made the waves perfectly suitable for airs and quick turns.

The upcoming week looks very similar in terms of surf conditions. With the wind blowing from the west and the swell dropping tomorrow, Geger will be the go-to spot for many surfers on the Bukit.
