Bali and Indonesia have waves year-round. In the dry season, April through October, the swells are more consistent, larger, and generally better on the Bukit Penninsula and the west side of Bali. The trade winds are offshore and the waves are perfectly groomed.
The most famous waves are Uluwatu, Padang Padang, and Bingin, but here we can find waves for all skills. On the East side of Bali are some amazing waves, like Keramas, that can get good in the mornings and when the winds are light. In the wet season, there are still plenty of waves, but the swells are smaller and less frequent and the winds are usually a little lighter.
See the island of Bali with a truly local waterman. Based on your skill and desires, we’ll find the best waves of the day. I like to stay around the Bukit Penninsula because of all the options, but if you’d like to take a little trip to Canggu or Keramas, let me know and we can arrange it.
Culture & gastronomy
Bali is a place steeped in rich culture. Riding through town, the activity is almost overwhelming. People zip around the crowded streets on mopeds and motorcycles. On many corners, you’ll see ceremonies and processions. It’s a truly special place.
Bali has become a hotspot for food, beverage, and nightlife. You can find both amazing local food as well as foreign-inspired Aussie cafes and gourmet food. I love to stop by a cafe after our surf to get a smoothie and coffee.
Welcome to Bali! I was born and raised in the waves at Uluwatu. From a young age I was surfing all the waves in the area - Ulus, Padang Padang, Bingin, Keramas, and as I grew older, began to travel all over Indonesia and eventually the world as a pro surfer.
I’ve won Padang Cup twice and competed with the world's best in some amazing waves. Today, I own my surf shop called Daya and love to guide surfers around my country and score perfect waves.
