Bali Beaches Closed and Travel Restrictions

There are very few surf breaks currently open in Bali and temporary travel restrictions are in place.

We continue to serve our few remaining guests as best we can but have decided to suspend our daily surf report.

So far there are still very few cases of COVID-19 in Bali and we hope the social distancing measures and travel controls will save Bali from this crisis.

We do not recommend you come to Bali in April. We are hoping the situation will improve by May.

Intermediate Surfing Lessons at Balangan, Bali

With the closure of several local beaches, Balangan was the only one in the area that wasn’t locked-down this morning so our intermediate group had no choice but to surf both of their lessons there today.

Although it was busier than it might otherwise have been, there were plenty of small but fun waves breaking around waist high and everybody enjoyed lots of long rides in the sunny conditions.

Tomorrow is Nyepi — Bali’s famous yearly day of silence — so we’ll see you back here in 48 hours!

Intermediate Surfing Lessons at Uluwatu, Bali

The crowds continue to get smaller as Bali progressively implements social distancing measures but the waves keep on coming and our intermediate group were up at dawn to enjoy what Uluwatu was serving up this morning.

Waves were perfectly glassy and breaking between waist and head-high along the different sections of reef, providing great conditions for a range of ability levels and plenty of  long rides to go around.

With the high tide, the group are having their second lessons of the day at Greenbowl before returning to the surf camp for their delicious freshly cooked lunch.

Intermediate Surfing Lessons at Greenbowl, Bali

Our intermediate group headed to Greenbowl this morning for their first session of surfing lessons where it was absolutely pumping!

The group surfed mostly out on the shoulder where the waves were breaking around shoulder-high but further up the peak there were some well overhead bombs coming through too.

With just a few other surfers in the water and glassy conditions, everybody had their pick of the waves and all had a great session.

Beginner Surfing Lessons at Padang Padang, Bali

This morning our beginner group headed to Padang Padang — our local beach, less than 1km down the road — for their semi-private surfing lesson.

The conditions weren’t as clean as they might have been due to the light onshore wind, but the waves on offer were still perfect for a first surf lesson; breaking at around knee-high and peeling softly to the beach.

With Bali as quiet as it currently is, if you can find a way to get yourself here, there’s never been a better time to learn to surf.

Intermediate Surfing Lessons at Uluwatu, Bali

The quiet perfect mornings at Uluwatu continue as our intermediate group headed down through the cave for their first surf session of the day today.

With only around twenty other surfers spread throughout the lineup, there were more than enough chest to shoulder-high waves for everybody to enjoy as the sets peeled down the reef.

For the second session, the tide is a little high to surf at Uluwatu again, so the group have headed to Greenbowl for their second surf lessons of the day.

Intermediate Surfing Lessons at Uluwatu, Bali

The tide and light wind combined perfectly this morning for our intermediate group to enjoy a dawn session at Uluwatu for their first surf lesson of the day.

With relatively few surfers spread across Uluwatu’s different peaks, there were plenty of waves available to be enjoyed by everyone from long peeling walls on the main peak where the bigger sets were breaking along to the racetrack section which was slightly smaller but offering some barrels.

After a quick stop back at the surf camp for breakfast the group surfed their second session of the day again at Uluwatu while our beginner group surfed both sessions at Padang Padang.

Beginner and Intermediate Surfing Lessons at Toro Toro, Bali

Another beautiful sunrise lit the way for our beginner and intermediate group as they hopped in the boat this morning out to Toro Toro alongside the airport runway for their first session of lessons for the day.

Waves were slightly larger than yesterday and — much to the delight of everybody —  just as clean and quiet as the group all enjoyed plenty of long rides along what is one of the surf camp’s favourite waves.

Beginner and Intermediate Surfing Lessons at Toro Toro, Bali

As our beginner and intermediate groups jumped on the boat at Jimbaran bay this morning and made their way out to the reef at Toro Toro, they were in for a treat as the sky was lit by another stunning sunrise.

No wind and the perfect-sized swell for the group resulted in glassy waves peeling perfectly along into the channel between waist and shoulder-high.

Bali is noticeably quiet with the current travel restrictions so if you’re looking for your own slice of uncrowded perfection, this is what’s waiting for you!
