Welcome to Indonesia and especially Bali. This is a "must visit" destination for surf travelers. Here's a little information about Indonesia in general.

INDONESIA

 

SOME GENERAL INFORMATION 
There is an abundance of quality surf throughout Indonesia. Biggest swells usually occur from June to August, but this is not the rule, as huge waves can occur at any time, created from violent storm activities far off the Indian Ocean.


THE SEASONS
Being in the tropics, Indonesia has two distinct seasons. The wet season occurs from December through February. The west/north-west trade winds blow, creating great right handers on the eastern coasts of most islands in the swell window. In Bali, this is offshore on the Sanur-Nusa Dua side of the island.

The dry season is basically from March through November, where SE trade winds take over, creating offshore winds on the western coasts of the islands, and hence all the pumping lefts. The border months of the dry season (March and November), are characterized by variable wind and weather conditions.

These border months are a great time to travel to Indonesia to get quality, uncrowded waves.

THE OUTER ISLANDS
Most of the best surf locations are found on outer islands with little or no facilities, and so boat access is the most suitable way of getting to these. 

There are a number of yacht charters that are currently running. We do not recommend local boat operators to take you to outer islands, as nobody monitors sea worthiness, and most local boat operators do not consider safety a key factor in their operations. 


You never know what you may be getting into as ocean conditions change rapidly.

We should also emphasize that even on many of the outer island land based locations, provisions of fresh usable water and foodstocks can not be guaranteed, and medical facilities are often inadequate. Thorough preparation is a necessity should you be considering spending time on your own in these remote regions. Do not take the attitude that you'll work it out at the time, because this is often NOT the case.

LANGUAGE
If you're considering very remote locations then a basic understanding of the Indonesian language is recommended. Take a look at Indo Surf and Lingo for some really helpful stuff.

With careful planning nothing is an impossibility.

THE ENVIRONMENT
Please remember to leave nothing behind and to be responsible, so that these areas will remain pristine for years to come.
