SOME QUICK QUESTIONS
I’M A BEGINNER SURFER, WHEN IS BEST FOR ME TO COME TO BALI?
The best surf spots in Bali for beginners work year-round. There will be a wave breaking somewhere on the Bukit Peninsula for you. Surfing in Bali in October, or November, December, January or February is still really enjoyable. Bali surf wet season is mostly January and February but it doesn’t mean there is no surf. Our partner surf school just moves over to the other side of the Peninsula, where winds are off-shore and it’s a short ride. Don’t rule out surfing Bali in the wet season as it’s still great!
I’M AN EXPERT SURFER; WHEN SHOULD I COME TO BALI?
The best waves for you arrive regularly between April November. There are so many spots to choose from here on the Bukit Peninsula, especially from Bingin, where we are centrally located to enjoy all these epic waves.
WHEN IS RAINY SEASON IN BALI?
April through October are very dry months. It can rain, but it is less likely than December through February. That doesn’t mean though that you should rule Bali out in these months. Some of the best surf spots in Bali for beginners work best when the wind moves onshore Dec through February and therefore, off-shore on the other side of the island, in Nusa Dua. Even when we have rain, it’s always warm and there’s always a wave breaking to ride!
WHEN IS THE BEST SEASON FOR LEARNING TO SURF?
The best surfing in Bali for beginners is truly year-round. There is always a spot breaking where you can find a rideable wave and our partner surf school will get you there, so you don’t need to think about transportation and how you are going to surf in the right spot as a beginner, novice or progressive surfer. If you are an intermediate surfer, the same thing applies; there is always a wave for you in Bali. Experts should concentrate on the big wave season March through November. Beginners, don’t worry as even in big-wave season, you will be surfing safely on the baby-reefs.

I’M AN INTERMEDIATE SURFER, WHEN SHOULD I COME TO SWELL?
As an intermediate surfer (able to catch green waves, turn, trip and carving turns) you can genuininely choose any time of year. Waves are generally bigger April to November, so don’t rule out Bali in the European Winter months as there will be a wave breaking on the Bukit Peninsula to suit you.
