5 Best Bali Surf Spots for Beginners
Best Bali surfing spots for dummies
Bali has many famous surf spots, but for beginners they can be either slightly intimidating, or just too dominated by the territorial pros. It might seem surprising, but one of the best breaks to find out whether you’re a goofy or a regular-footer is possibly the most recognizable one – Kuta. Along Bali’s sandy south-western coast, Kuta’s sister beaches with sandy beach breaks provide the best spots to improve your wave riding. These selections are all accessible and located not too far from the major surf schools and are all within main destinations.
You can leave the more serious reef breaks and greater curls of the far-flung southern Bukit peninsula to the pros – and reserve them as your future wish list as you advance, because being constantly wiped out by five to six-foot curls is no fun when you’ve just found your balance on your board. Best waves for most sites are during the dry season, from April to August with good easterly winds and without much flotsam around.
