IndoSurfLife.com was lucky enough to score a berth on the Aileoita 1’s maiden voyage of the year. Surrounded by friends, all keen, some green, we cruised around the archipelago in early April ready for a good time.

Sailing between spots we only saw about 6 other boats and relished the friendly or empty lineups in what truly is an idyllic locale. Even without a strong forecast, our guide managed to find fun waves all over and by the end of the trip everyone was beyond surfed out and inspired to plan a return visit. Live vicariously through our pics and book your own trip soon.

Everybody’s favorite female charger from WA, Miss Claire Bevilacqua herself, was recently on island to train a pack of 6 up-and-coming Aussie groms and get some waves for herself.

February is over; this month was the worst February we had in years in terms of waves. It was a shorter month with 28 days but we only had 3 swells arriving in Indonesia in that time.

It has been a long year… While for some of the local and International Schools in Bali the year has not quite finished yet, the kids were already out. Mid-term school holidays start today for local schools, so from now on expect the kids out and, as always, they’re frothing. Today, in 2ft Canggu, we could experience what will be happening for the next 3 weeks: A crowd of boys and girls dominating the line-ups of Bali.

Naughty or not the kids are ripping!!!

December has arrived! We usually have a lot of rain and Westerly winds at this time of the year, but as we’ve mentioned before this year is rather unusual. Not that we’re complaining! Over the last few days we enjoyed a mid-size swell that brought Bali fun waves, 5-6ft at some breaks, and with the light Southerly winds we’ve been able to surf all day. The coconut wireless is buzzing with stories that it’s been barreling all over the island.

“We’d been hanging at Macca’s and Green Bush for the last 4 days, and the natural footers were frothing to hit another perfect right-hander after the first 2 days we got at Rifles. Luckily we had a world class right just around the corner and that would be our next destination: Rags.

The seasons are changing in Bali, we have a really hot couple of weeks and the Trade winds are no longer coming as we had in the last 4 months, the swells are also not as strong as before, but yes we are in Indo, waves are always perfect and fun. Check this photos from yesterday at Pererenan and tell us where you would rather be.
