Intermediate surf guiding at Uluwatu

What a fun morning session this was today! Sunny weather, a clear sky, and clean surfing conditions made it a perfect start to the day. Long, silky smooth waves were peeling over the reef at Uluwatu, and everyone out there was having a blast.

Days like today are what make surfing in Bali so special. Besides the great waves, the clear water, and colorful fish underneath you in the line-up are the cherries on top. With the wind coming from the west and picking up tomorrow, the surfing conditions will most likely be best on the east coast again.

Intermediate surf guiding at Uluwatu

Uluwatu was the right choice today. A medium period swell with 13 seconds and five feet was enough to give the waves some punch. On a day like this, different peaks offer plenty of waves to choose from.

Clean, fast breaking waves were the perfect playground to push your surfing skills to the next level. The forecast predicts light wind for the rest of the week, with rising swell on Saturday we expect to have some great surf sessions.

Intermediate surf guiding at Uluwatu

Light winds and head high waves this morning, but there was a squall overnight, which disrupted the waves and made conditions challenging. There were some good rides to be had, but quite difficult conditions, and a change from normal clean conditions. We decided to have a quick surf as always good to get wet. The forecast says the wind will change direction, so we will see how it looks after the tide turns, and maybe go back to Uluwatu for 2nd session, or take a trip over to the East coast for some Nusa Dua action.

Advanced surf guiding at Uluwatu

The swell was bigger today, and the waves more powerful, but the wind was stronger and this made for challenging conditions. The best waves today were on the peak and there was some bombs to be had, but the onshore wind made the wave more difficult to read and also a bit harder to catch. To improve your surfing it is best to surf in a variety of conditions and swell size. After 8 months constant offshore winds it is a bit hard to adjust to onshore waves with a bit of bump, but necessary to get your surfing ability to the next level.

Intermediate surf guiding at Uluwatu

Sunny and new swell this morning, but the wind was onshore at Uluwatu. We did consider going over to the east coast, but the wave quality was quite good at Ulu’s, and not many people at start of the session. 1 long ride at Uluwatu is enough to make a great surf session, and there were a few 300 metre rides peeling to the end of the race track. An advantage of onshore conditions is that the hot local surfers generally do not bother, and today it was mostly intermediate surfers. 1 tip for these conditions: don’t take the first wave in the set as that is the bumpiest. The secondary waves in the set will be cleaner due to the first wave breaking up the chop.

Intermediate surf guiding at Uluwatu

Perfect surfing conditions again here in Bali, with a light offshore wind and blue skies. The swell is quite small today and just 2 people out surfing baby Padang. Just around the corner at Uluwatu, the waves were head high, and perfect for intermediate surfers. Long rides, clean waves not too powerful or fast and enough water on reef, gives intermediate surfers perfect opportunity to improve their surfing. Not having to wear a wetsuit improves the quality of the experience, and also makes surfing easier.

Intermediate surf guiding at Uluwatu

Very poor conditions today by Bali standards, with a very small swell and onshore wind. Uluwatu still works in an onshore wind, so there was still some waves to be had, and enough power in the wave to do some turns. Always fun to get wet, and the water is nice and warm this time of year. Tomorrow’s forecast is even smaller, and looks like we are in for a whole week of very small waves.

Intermediate surf guiding at Uluwatu

Another perfect day for surfing, in the world’s best, and most consistent surfing island. Sunny with light offshore winds, the wave quality was world class, and perfect for intermediates and improvers. Plenty of head high waves with the occasional bigger set, there was enough waves for everyone to have a great session. Tourists are slowly returning to Bali since they reduced the quarantine requirements, but still plenty of elbow room in the line up, and today was the day to fill your boots with good waves. Swell forecast to be a bit smaller tomorrow, and by the end of the week, south coast breaks will be the place to get overhead waves.

Intermediate surf guiding at Uluwatu

Perfect conditions for intermediate surfers at Bali’s premier surf spot today. It is a common misunderstanding that November is wet and onshore on the west coast of the Bukit. Winds are light and variable this time of year and you can get clean conditions on East, West and South coasts. When the swell is tiny, the south coast if the place for bigger waves, but Uluwatu was perfect today for your average surfer who wants to ride long, clean, head high waves. Hot and sunny.
