It’s not often you get a solo session at any break in Bali, but that was the case today for the intermediate group after they drove to Greenball for an early morning surf. The waves were about shoulder high with bigger head high plus sets coming at regular intervals. There was a light onshore wind but it didn’t deter anyone as they were able to pick and choose the best waves of the day as they rolled through – before heading back to the camp for breakfast and a second session at Uluwatu.
Today’s surf adventure is Greenbowl. The swell has picked up since yesterday with shoulder to head high waves.
There was a bit of a bump on the waves but it was very suitable to intermediate surfers since the waves are not too tricky today.
It’s expected to be very windy this afternoon on the west coast so if you’re thinking on getting a late afternoon/ arvo session, Pandawa or around the east coast might be your go-to option.
We headed to Greenbowl for this morning’s intermediate and advanced surf session where the light overnight onshore wind was resulting in conditions being a little bumpy.
Waves were breaking — mainly right — between chest and head-high and with fewer than ten surfers in the water, there were plenty of waves to go around.
With the smaller wet-season swells and changeable winds it can be a little tricky to find quality waves each day here but there’s no better place to be located than here on the Bukit peninsular where it’s always offshore somewhere.
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
With the swell having faded completely, we headed to Greenbowl this morning — one of the best-known local swell magnets — to make the most of what waveswas left
Taking a break from the abundant left-handers in the area, the surfers were enjoying the conditions which were a little bumpy but clean and uncrowded, as waves were breaking along into the channel in the waist to shoulder-high range.
Conditions will remain small tomorrow although a small increase in wave height should open up some more options in terms of where to surf.
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.
For the second time this week, our intermediate group made their way down the Greenbowl stairs this morning for their first session of group lessons and, as you can see from the pictures, our expert surf instructors knew exactly where the waves would at their best.
Breaking between shoulder and head-high on sets, the waves were clean and glassy thanks to the windless start to the day and everybody caught some great rides.
After breakfast, the group surfed again at Balangan for their second session of the day
The much anticipated increase in swell was starting to show as our intermediate and advanced group headed to Greenbowl for the dawn session this morning and were greeted by a beautiful sunrise and shoulder to head-high waves peeling down the reef.
Very light wind meant the conditions were glassy and everybody caught plenty of waves before heading back to the camp for a well deserved breakfast.
Waves were breaking between knee and shoulder height so it would have been nice if the swell was a little bigger, but the clean, uncrowded and sunny conditions were still enjoyed by everyone.
After breakfast back at the surf camp, the group surfed their second session at Uluwatu, meanwhile our beginners’ group were surfing on the west cost of the Bukit peninsular at Balangan.
