Re:Surfing in Bali/Indonesia - 2009/12/31 22:37 Sounds to me like you've just had a bad experience. Bali can be like that but there are loads of break and secluded spots if you look hard enough, and no surf camps in sight. I was in Hawaii last Christmas and the surf camp guys were knobs, and dropping in was a must if you even wanted to catch a wave!!

Fair enough- but riding around in a retard van, with a driver that has less sense than you hardly rates as luxury. You can always get your own driver or split it with a friend. There are plenty of options to these rip off surf camps.

For all the criticism and negatives, you have not shared any positive advise or specific guidance or directions.

A new learner does not know who to ask, where to go and what to do. Maybe experienced surfers here should recommend good surf instructors/ camps and locations to go etc.

Re:Surfing in Bali/Indonesia - 2012/04/13 03:11 I agree w/ the opinions here about NOT going to breaks that have reefs and lots of other people (many who can be a$$es & CAN surf better than you) and cause a hazard to not only yourself but OTHERS if you are learning or new to surfing. For me, the best advice is to RESPECT the LOCALS, WATCH and LEARN, HANG OUT at the SHOULDER ior INSIDE and NOT DROP IN on people, period. If you are good enough, and in shape enough, you will get opportunities to drop in when someone falls or does not take a wave or they miss it. When it is time and you ARE good enough, you should move into the pack and go for it. But NOT as a new person at a crowded reefbreak, point break or especially a beach break!

Re:Surfing in Bali/Indonesia - 2012/04/15 08:38 hey all.

yeah i agree with the original post. i was at canggu last month when a school of about 30 came out with a couple of locals and started dropping in all over the shop, one dropped in right in front of me and i got her board in my crotch! not that i'm an expert or nothing, but i'm trying to teach myself to surf. this incident was slightly off putting. i also agree with what was said about more experienced surfers passing on knowledge to newbies so they can avoid these schools of kooks.

so where else in bali is good for beginners, who want to learn unassisted?

mullet.
