Beginner Surfing Lessons at Balangan, Bali

This morning our beginners’ group travelled to Balangan — one of our local beaches and one of the most beautiful on the Bukit peninsular — for their first session of surfing lessons.

Winds were light and the sky was clear as the sun rose over Bali with the waves breaking at a perfectly beginner-friendly knee to chest-high.

Having expert guides who can pick conditions like this makes all the difference and, as you can see from the gallery, our surfers enjoyed many great rides in uncrowded conditions.

Beginner Surfing Lessons at Balangan, Bali

This morning our beginner groups headed to Balangan beach for their group and private surfing lessons.

Waves were typically coming through in the knee to shoulder-high range with a couple of larger sets, which the future big wave surfers among the group confidently took advantage of!

After a break between sessions, the groups stayed at Balangan for their second session of the day as it remained the ideal place to surf today based on the tide, wind and swell conditions.

Beginner and Intermediate Surfing Lessons at Balangan, Bali

Our beginner and intermediate groups headed to Balangan beach again this morning for their group and private surf lessons where the waves were breaking between waist and shoulder-high with a couple of occasional larger sets.

The crowds were thin and our students had the middle of the beach to themselves for much of the session, which meant there were plenty of waves to go around and the maximum potential for making improvements.

As you can see from today’s gallery, everybody caught lots of waves and had a great time in the Bali morning sun.

Intermediate Surfing Lessons at Balangan beach, Bali

Balangan’s palm-fringed beach was the location of choice for today’s intermediate lessons where waves were coming through between waist and shoulder-high.

Today’s guests — appreciating the value of even better instructor-to-student ratios — all opted for either private or semi-private lessons and it was apparent by the number of great rides they all got to enjoy.

After breakfast, our intermediates returned to Balangan for their second session while elsewhere at camp our advanced group surfed Uluwatu then Greenbowl and our beginners surfed at our local break of Padang Padang.

Beginner Surf Lessons at Balangan, Bali

We were expecting some wet season winds this morning but when they never arrived, our beginner group changed their plans and enjoyed the shorter ride to beautiful Balangan beach for a sunny morning of group, private, and semi-private surfing lessons.

Waves were in the knee to waist-high range this morning and perfectly clean and glassy — exactly what you need for building confidence and progressing from riding straight in the white water to making your first turns down the line.

Beginner and Intermediate Surfing Lessons at Balangan, Bali

Balangan was the location chosen by our expert instructors and spot selectors for today’s beginner and intermediate surfing lessons.

Like many of the breaks in the surf camp’s local area, the different sections of the Balangan reef have distinct characteristics which are each suited to different ability levels. This means that, on days like today, both beginner and intermediate surfers can enjoy waves that are perfectly suited to each of them at the same beach.

Waves were coming through between knee and head-high today and everybody had a lot of fun in the November morning sun.

Beginner Surf Lessons at Balangan, Bali

It was another beautiful morning for learning to surf here on Bali’s Bukit peninsular as our two beginner groups headed off to Balangan beach for their surfing lessons.

The knee-high waves — expertly selected by our instructors — were the perfect beginner-friendly introduction for our surfers building their confidence and skills in the water.

For their second session of the day, our beginners groups will either surf at Balangan again or the surf camp’s local break at Padang Padang.

Intermediate Surfing Lessons at Balangan, Bali

Today our intermediate group ventured to Balangan for both of their morning surf lessons. Palm-fringed with white sand, Balangan is one of the most beautiful beaches on the west coast of the Bukit peninsular and just being there is an experience of its own.

There was a little wind but waves were still clean and all of our surfers were making great progress riding along Balangan’s green faces as waves were arriving in the waist to shoulder-high range.

After their surf lessons, everybody headed back to camp for our delicious weekly BBQ which was well deserved!

Beginner Surf Lessons at Balangan, Bali

This morning our beginner group headed to Balangan for their surf lessons — one of the most picturesque, palm-fringed beaches on the Bukit peninsular.

As you can see from today’s gallery, you’d be forgiven for thinking this was our beginners’ group as they’ve all already progressed from the whitewater to riding along Balangan’s open faces.

Today’s waves were coming through in the chest to shoulder-high range and providing the perfect balance of challenging but safe conditions to help our surfers progress as quickly as possible.
