soft wave - kuta beach is crowded and crazy but so is most of bali. it's the best place to start. just make sure you get out early for the best waves. kuta reef, ap left and rights are nice. very deep reef. move up to ulu or bingin. if you go towards bingin hit dreamlands. it's fun.

Not too difficult waves! - I'm searching for soft waves in bali for the first week. I diddn't surf for 8 months and now i go to bali. So i want to go first to softer spots. who can tell me some (except kutabeach)? It can be reef but deepwater or beachbreak.
thank you

where is the best place to learn surfing - hi everybody. first time we tried to surf last summer in legian area with a little result. i assume that we are loosy beginers from russia and had no chance to catch a real wave after only a week of training. we r planning to go to bali this may and i hope u could give me a good advice where to surf. i was told that i need a point-break whith sandy bottom (legian beach brakes are too fast and too close to closeout). is there anything like that in bali or somewhere else where it is hot in may.i would prefer to avoid reef-corals under water and being scalped by restless natives. thx. dennis.

bring a board. - boards are USUALLY very expensive. the folks in Kuta will not bargain for boards usually. you can find people on the street trying to sell boards cheap, but not always the case. it's worth bringing a beater. something you can surf the trip on and if you find something you can sell the beater.

boards: buying local or bring your own? - considering buying a board locally, a minimal. one guy said it's a rip off. can someone confirm what the score is pls? i'm going in april. don't want to carry my board with me.

Boards in Bail are expensive - Do Not buy a board in Bail, there a rip off if ya a ozzy. However if ya a jap there cheap as chips. Boards in Japan are expensive ($2000au) compaired to boards in oz ($600au), so they mark the prices up so make a little extra cash. Buy your boards at home where you wont get riped off. Boards in Bali cost around $1000au if ya intrested, well they were when i was last there in 2001.

..... P.S. - And in return to what was said two messages below - keep in mind Bali is still Indonesia which means very strict culture. Bali is fairly safe, but other Indo islands (Sumatra in particular - you have to be crazy to go there) you can have your throat cut for having a woman in your house that you're not married to. Respect the culture and you'll do fine...

In query of airfare (from below) - Your best bet is just to search around for the good deals - I know Travelocity.com has some pretty good flights. The last time I was in Indo I was on China Airlines from LA - but from what I've heard Cathay Pacific is pretty cheap too.

Bali... - Bali's fine, the tourism industry is up compared to the same time last year, I lived there for 3 years (in Kuta) and was there when the bombs went off, then i left and returned a month later to find a big empty gap in the surfer-tourism population. I'm out of there now but from what i hear it's the surfer population is getting back on up there again. There shouldn't be any worries as a surfer, although no more parties and no more scando chicks...
I'd be a bit worried about travelling out of bali(to lombok, sumbawa java etc...), what was allready a bit hairy has become worse from what i've heard and the likelyhood of finding yourself dead face down in a gutter has also increased. All in all it fine, support Bali, support the innocent people of Bali and have a good time.
ps:waves around this time of the year are still good, just over the other coast. The only problem is that it rains a lot which can be anoying if you're on holiday.

party and prices - Hi everyboby I'm planning a trip to Bali to surf,
but I'm a little worried about the party quality now after the bombings.
Anyone been there resently?
And then another question. How are the prices on boards?
I'm thinking about bying a new one. Can I buy it there?
Or is it better to by one at home and bring it?
Thanks for answer!!!
