- Fantastic place, Tahiti like paysage, exceptionally long lefts, good locals, great atmosphere, even though occasionally a bit crowded.
Due to the spot being right in front of a river mouth, the idyllic atmosphere is on rare occasions disrupted by shark sightseeings.
Be careful, don't surf there after a rain, early at dawn or on sunsets.

pity... - used to be good fun, but now there are just too many wankers who shouldn't even be in the water

beginners at Balian - Beginners are fine, they just need to stay in Kuta on the beachies until they learn right of way rules, duckdiving (dont throw your board behind you so some guy cops it in the head paddling out behind you) and can actually stand up! Loose boards are dangerous.
