Surfing in Bali

surfingSurfing is very popular today’s in Bali. As the sun approaches the horizon, you can see young Balinese men approaching the beach on their surfboards, controlling them with the same gracefullness as in their traditional dances, mastering the waves and penetrating the tubes.

Kuta

Kuta is one of the most popular sites; you can find basically any surfing equipment there. Even in Kuta Beach and the area around it alone there are places for difficult surfs. It’s best to talk to the locals so you won’t get into trouble. As the sun approaches the horizon, you can see lines of Balinese approaching the beach, controlling their surf-boards with the same gracefulness as their traditional dances, mastering the waves and penetrating the tubes.

Nusa Dua.

On the south-eastern tip of the island, the Nusa Dua peninsula has some nice reef that provides good waves for surfing. You can stay on any of the most sumptuous hotels in the world spread around the area, and surfing is readily available within walking distance, from a beginner’s level to a challenging one for the serious surfers.

Uluwatu

On the southern tip of Bali, Uluwatu is also high on a surfer’s destination list. You can’t reach it by car – rent a motorcycle or walk for about two miles to get there. The site is very popular among serious surfers. The road to the beach is pretty well-hidden, off the road to the temple of Uluwatu (which in itself is an amazing three-court temple on top of a few hundred feet cliff).
