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.
