Intermediate Surf Guiding at Dreamland, Bali

This morning we headed to Dreamland — one of our closest breaks — where the conditions were perfect for the intermediates.

With a little more shelter than some of the surrounding coastline, waves were breaking here on the main beach and the A-frame reef between waist and shoulder high with long lefts and rights to enjoy

The sun was out and with light winds the quite clean conditions made for a beautiful morning of waves for everyone

Intermediate and Advanced Surf Guiding at Uluwatu, Bali

We headed to our premier local wave this morning — Uluwatu — for the intermediate and advanced surf guiding session where the swell had dropped slightly overnight.

Conditions were clean and waves were generally breaking between chest and head-high with light variable winds

A new medium/large higher-period swell will be filling overnight which should provide us with even more swell and options for tomorrow

Intermediate Surf Guiding at Impossibles, Bali

The conditions for this morning’s intermediate surf guiding session weren’t quite up the very high standards we’re accustomed to here in Bali

Up the road, Uluwatu had a little too much size, so we tried our luck at Impossibles where there wasn’t quite enough swell for it to be a five-star day and the changeable wind direction took off another star.

Having said that, there were few people in the water and even though the waves weren’t perfectly clean, there were some long racey walls on offer and plenty of waves for everyone.

Advanced Surf Guiding at Uluwatu, Bali

There was an increase in swell height overnight so Uluwatu wasn’t suitable for the intermediates today, but it was perfect for the advanced surfers

The sun was out and conditions were very clean as waves were breaking around head-high to a foot or two overhead with a light offshore breeze

Wave height is going to continue to increase throughout the day and tomorrow should see some of the more sheltered spots come alive, including Padang Padang

Advanced Surf Guiding at Uluwatu, Bali

The sun was shining and the wind was light for another morning of perfect surf down the road at Uluwatu today.

This morning’s conditions were glassy and clean with very light wind as waves were breaking up and down all sections of the reef in the shoulder-high to over head range.

Tomorrow’s conditions are expected to be smaller again so possibly even a chance for the lower intermediates and beginners to enjoy one of Bali’s most famous waves.

Intermediate and Advanced Surf Guiding at Impossibles, Bali

Yesterday’s swell had dropped significantly overnight but there were plenty of waves on offer and only three other surfers in the water when our intermediate and advanced guiding group paddled out at Impossibles for the late morning session

Waves were breaking around head-high and improved in quality as the tide pulled out with long racy walls in the sun for everyone to enjoy

The swell is expected to fade further overnight but there will be plenty around tomorrow still for all of the premier breaks in the local area to be firing again

Advanced Surf Guiding at Balangan and Impossibles, Bali

With the swell peaking this morning, the south coast spots were maxed-out as expected, so we headed for the cover of the Bukit Peninsular’s west coast

Even at more sheltered spots, the waves were breaking well overhead with a tow crew in the water at Balangan. Our advanced group settled on Impossibles as the spot to surf at where the large swell was serving up huge green walls and long, leg-aching rides.

After a low-tide sunset session at famous Padang Padang this afternoon, the swell should start to decline for another day of great waves tomorrow.

Advanced Surf Guiding at Uluwatu, Bali

Everybody was eagerly awaiting the arrival of this morning’s new swell. At dawn there still wasn’t much showing but by mid-morning, waves had started picking up for our advanced group’s session at Uluwatu

At the start of the session there was fun waves running down the reef around chest-high but a couple of hours later, the swell had increased significantly with clean conditions, long powerful waves and plenty of barrels being enjoyed well into the afternoon.

With the swell continuing to build, we’ll be heading for some more sheltered breaks tomorrow and there will be plenty of options available for the beginners and intermediates too

Intermediate and Advanced Surf Guiding at Greenbowl, Bali

With the last ripples of a fading swell, the options for the intermediate and advanced surfing group were limited this morning so we headed to Greenbowl — one of the south coast’s swell magnets — to make the best of the conditions

Due to light variable winds the conditions weren’t perfectly clean, but there were plenty of waves between waist and shoulder high breaking both left and right along the reef

With a new swell arriving tomorrow and building through the day, it should mark the start of another great week of waves ahead
