SURF GUIDED TOURS
Bali has over 20 top-quality breaks on the Southwest and Southeast coasts of the island and around the Bukit Peninsula. Some of these breaks like Padang Padang and Uluwatu are world class barrelling reef breaks. Others range from good fun, like the beach breaks around Kuta and Sanur, to serious tubular waves. Bali gets the full force of southern ocean swells directly from the Antarctic, its south-west and south-east coasts being littered with surf spots. The winter months (June-Sept) are preferred for their perfect surf conditions on the West side of Bali. However, this means that these are also the most crowded times. From Oct-May still offer good waves. Bali, unlike other areas of Indonesia where all spots are heavy reef breaks for experienced surfers, actually has a lot of beach breaks accessible to all.

LOCATION & GETTING HERE
The emerald islands of the Indonesian archipelago have for centuries lured everyone, from missionaries to pirates, traders and more recently to tourists and backpackers. The sandalwood and spice breezes, magnificent beaches, mountains and volcanoes of these islands acting as a magnet to both ancient and modern travellers. But Indonesia is also the ultimate surfer’s paradise, with hundreds of islands and unknown waves waiting to be discovered. The climate is tropical and has two main seasons: from November to march and from June to October.
Although Bali is relatively small (90 miles long and 48 miles wide), it is densely populated and culturally and economically one of the most important islands of Indonesia. Bali has more than 3 million people, a great variety of countryside and probably more than 10,000 temples. While Bali may no longer be the “last frontier” surf destination, it still lies at the heart of the Indonesian surf experience, the quality of its waves and “Bali Hai” lifestyle attracting surfers from all over the world. It is also a mandatory stop for anyone on their Indo trip to the adjacent G-Land, Lombok or Sumbawa surf spots. Bali is an island of high volcanoes, rice fields, majestic temples and beautiful beaches which has maintained its traditions very well alive, but you will equally find McDonalds, surf shops, cheap restaurants, bars and plenty of nightlife in Kuta.
Tropical. Warm waters all year long ! Good waves all year long! Bali is a tropical island with temperatures ranging from 21 to 33°C. Dry season lasts from April until September, and that means sunshine every day. Wet season lasts from December until March, and at least a short daily shower is common but still sunny and great waves all day long!!! Still, temperatures mostly remain tropical. So don’t take too many clothes! Except for one long sleeve outfit and the right shoes for hiking the volcano, shorts and tee shirts are more than enough. Besides, shopping is a must on Bali! Water temperature is a constant 28°C, so you will mostly surf in shorts. At chilly morning sessions you will sometimes wear a lycra shirt, but a neoprene shorty is not really necessary.
Depansar airport (Ngurah Rai international Airport) is 18 kms far from the surfcamp. Transfer to the camp : 18€ *per person/way Please let us know the time of your arrival with at least 24 hours of prior notice.
30-day tourist visas are available to visitors from most countries upon arrival in Bali for only $25 USD. A 60-day tourist visa can also be applied for at the Indonesian embassy in your home country. The 60-day visa is necessary for citizens of countries not eligible for obtaining visas upon arrival as well as those who wish to stay in Bali for more than 30 days.
Tourists are permitted to bring 3 surfboards into Bali for personal use. Any boards beyond the allotted three will be counted as imports by the Indonesian government and subject to a customs duty of around $100 US dollars per board, though this fee is often negotiable.
The island of Bali is considered malaria-safe. If you plan to venture to other parts of Indonesia be advised to take precautions, since all other Indonesian islands have a higher risk for malaria. Staying on boats offshore (for liveboards, diving excursions, etc.) is also considered safe.
The currency of Bali and Indonesia is the Rupiah. The exchange rate with the euro varies from day to day but at the time of writing 1 euro = 12,300 Rupiah. It is best to arrive in Bali with a valid international debit card such as a Maestro (EC) or a widely accepted credit card.
