Perfect size at impossibles this morning, if you didn’t mind taking the bigger sets on the head! Just a handful of guys out and some leg achingly long rides to be had. As always with impossibles, wave selection and positioning is key. Many close outs, but you only need to get a couple of long rides to have an excellent session. Swell is a touch smaller than yesterday but there were 10 wave sets and needed to be careful not to get swept inside.
When condition are right, Uluwatu is one of the best world class waves in the area. Today the spot provided perfect conditions for intermediate looking to improve. Its a great improves spot for learning carving, pop up quickly and pumping. The waves there are longer and clean. The wind in this season is offshore everyday, so we can enjoy surfing all day!
This morning our highly experienced coach Koki took our beginners group to Baby Padang for a solid introduction to the art of surfing. After some instruction on theory and practice, the guys were soon getting themselves into position. With Koki’s help were soon catching green unbroken waves. They had an excellent fun time! The condition were perfect for their first time in the water; excellent fun and the guys went away happy and tired, after their first surfing experience, but looking forward to joining us again to build upon their experience. Nothing compares to riding your first green waves.
Swell is pumping here today and barrels galore at Padang Padang, the premium barreling wave, also known as the Balinese pipeline. Just 10 people out is incredible for this wave as normally packed with local and traveling surfers. Very very consistent waves today and more than enough barrels for everyone.
Perfect clean overhead conditions this morning for our advanced group at the legendary Impossible. The waves today offered super long fast rides with occasional cover ups. The effort to get up early was well rewarded. The condition of impossible aren’t easy, but when the condition are right, Impossible is one of the most perfect wave in the area. A massive swell at low tides produces big clean barrels for the brave, with consistent swell – like today – is a great improver spot for learning to pop up fast and pumping.
Today is the day for our advance group to enjoy Uluwatu! Conditions are perfect today! At 6:45 am we already paddling out, it’s a sunny day with light offshore wind; Swell is consistent today, the waves are clean, head high to over head size on the sets. Perfect for improving. The set is coming and Andy is been dreaming of surfing Uluwatu! He paddled the waves of the day! When he finished the waves, his face was totally happy and satisfied; we can feel the vibes! Waves after waves is the time to go back to the surfcamp for photos analysis, and enjoy the healthy breakfast.
This morning we planned to surf Toro Toro, but the swell size had dropped considerably overnight. We therefore decided to motor past the airport runway to Airport Lefts which was overhead on the sets.
The offshore trade winds kicked in early this morning, but did not affect the wave quality. Perfect conditions for intermediate surfers as deep water and soft breaking. Some very long rides, and Andy got one of the best waves of his life. Perfect way to start the day.
