Surf Report

1st May 2018


There were great waves on Bali's East coast during the Wet Season, but winds have now swung, making West coast winds offshore since April. Spots like Uluwatu, Padang-Padang, Kuta Beach and Canggu have been perfect, with many head high days. Even Keramas on the other side has had glassy mornings. Crowds are still light, but are picking up each week. Usually from April each year the sunshine and perfect offshore winds continue for 6 months. Early season Mentawai trips have started. So plan your Indo surf trip now!

We might learn a bit from the last couple of years: Bali's 2016 and 2017 peak surf season started earlier than usual, with some great uncrowded sessions all over Indo starting in late February to early March. Last year April and May were especially good and glassy. Then June kicked in with ultra-high tides and massive swells. July saw solid 8-10 foot swells at Padang-Padang, then again in August and September.. And remember, last year's El Nino conditions delivered epic "Best Waves of a Lifetime" with two huge swells in October and November, proving Indo can always turn it on.

* Last year many Bali flights were cancelled due to Volcanic ash from nearby East Java and Lombok. And now Bali's Gunung Agung volcano has started to rumble again. Although skies are still 100% clear now, make sure you get Travel Insurance the same day you book any flights or hotels. Then you'll be covered for any delays or expenses if a Volcano kicks up again, or you or family "break a leg" and have to cancel your trip before you even leave! 

INDO SURF TRAVEL INSURANCE covers you for Cancellation costs, $25 Million Emergency Hospital and Medevac flights. Plus unlike most other more expensive companies, SURFBOARDS are covered up to $1,000 each - even IN USE surfing, which keeps you smiling even when a board snaps.  Get Your TRAVEL INSURANCE Here
