We found Desert Point for regular footers, but it only works properly a few times a year.
Long time ago we would search for waves and if it was working we would surf by ourselves. That right hander was a scape and we need a solo surfing.
Perfect, heavy and priceless…. Green Bush, Mentawai
When Keramas is pumping the crowd will be insane, and only a hundred meters away there is that wave, called Car Park, where only men can surf it. Here the Padma Boy Nyoman Blacky dominating it.
More than a month after an Esperance surfer had a close encounter with a great white shark, stunning photos have emerged of the incident.
Lately more and more people are complaining about the crowds in Indonesia. But there are a lot of options around the 17 thousand Islands of the archipelago. If you keen to travel and look for new waves you might find spots that you will surf by yourself or with a couple of friends. In one of our latest trip we found that spot. After watching 7 or 8 sets breaking in the exactly same spot we went down and surf it for 3 ours. A friend and I in a uncrowded sesh.
When there is a SW swell coming to Bali hundreds of surfers start their night migration to the Island of Lombok. The drive is painful: 2 hours to the harbour + 4 to 6 hours in the ferry + 1,5 hour drive to reach those waves. Another SW swell arriving tomorrow, and another trip to be paid off.

We just had the swell forecast updated today, there are 3 Southwest swell coming to Indonesia. In the next 10 days we will have 3 opportunities to score waves like this at Padang-padang, Bali. This photo was taken during the Rip Curl Cup that takes place every year at Padang, the Balinese Pipeline as it is known. Are you joint us for a photo sesh next swell?
Do you know those days when the swell is too small to surf at Padang-Padang, the waves at Uluwatu are not really breaking at Outside Corner, and if you try to surf Race Tracks or Inside Corner some bigger sets would just wash through?
Those days are what we call the Bingin days.
Padang-padang is considered the Balinese Pipeline. It does not break so often then when It’s On the boys will be out there choosing the best ones to get barrelled. Here Made “Garut” Widiarta is showing why he is 2014’s Rip Curl Cup Champion. The Kuta Board rider surfer is one of the most experienced local surfer at this break.
