The swell was tiny at sunset yesterday. Totally different story this morning at sunrise. The swell jumped in size overnight and is building all day. The biggest swell so far this year. We were lucky to have light winds and uncrowded conditions today at Toro Toro. Many leg achingly long rides.
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.
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!
Our intermediate group was out for a dawnie at Toro Toro. The conditions were suboptimal with low tide, swell and light wind but there were still plenty of fun sized, hip to shoulder high waves. In between sets we enjoyed the view at the amazing sunrise over tranquil Bali.
After the delicious breakfast and a little rest back at the camp the group went for a second session at Padang.
This morning all groups jumped on the boat next to Kedonganan pier in Jimbaran in search of waves at Bali’s Airport reefs. Our intermediate group stopped first for their surf lessons at Toro Toro where the waves were slightly smaller but glassy and perfectly formed. The advanced group continued to the other side of the airport runway for surf guiding at Airport Lefts where the waves were bigger but not as clean.
With both groups being joined at their respective spots by only a couple of other surfers, everybody got to enjoy some of the uncrowded waves that Bali’s wet season is known for.
Our beginner and intermediate group were lucky enough to enjoy Toro Toro at dawn this morning for the second day in a row. The swell had dropped slightly overnight but the lower tide meant the super playful and glassy waves were still breaking in the waist to shoulder-high range.
After a while, our group was joined in the water by a couple of other boats of surfers but there were still loads of waves to go around and everybody got their fill of long rides before heading back to camp for breakfast.
Our intermediate group had the pleasure of surfing at camp favourite Toro Toro this morning for their first session of group lessons today — much to everyone’s delight.
As dawn broke and the sun rose over Bali, our surfers were taking advantage of the glassy waist to shoulder-high conditions out next to the airport runway and all catching lots of long rides.
As the swell is quite large today and the wind is still favourable, the group will surf at Padang Padang — our closest beach — for their second session of the day before returning to camp for their delicious daily lunchtime feast.
