Surfboard shapers in Bali - Hi,Has anyone got details of good surfboard shapers in Bali?ThanksTim
No waves in Singapore - hiya, i'm from singapore and in response to your question below, there's no way you can surf in singapore. no waves. which sucks big time. some of the young locals here do skimboard but seriously, i don't even know why they even attempt to.
hey singapore,, ? - I'm think of where to go next on my trip guys.. are they any good waves i singapore??
Cuts - Just got back from ----- in indo. Much more swell/power than the mentawais. Nonetheless, indo does not generally have the power of places like Hawaii, Samoa, Tahiti, WA etc. What it does have though are some sharp, shallow ass reefs! Guarantee some cuts. Careful!
when is the best time to go? - Hey all, I am a respectful traveler, interested in getting some feedback from people that have gone to Indo/Bali to surf. Questions: When is the best time to go? How long is a tourist visa? I'm interested in a 3 month stay, how do you go about extending the visa? Thanks.
By go now
the word is out - All the best secret spots are actually in EAST kalimantan, go there next off season. IT's SICK! also, don't tell anyone, but indo still has waves year round, now that's a secret worth knowing
Back off Youth - For the love of the good lord above please don't 'spread the word' any further than it's been spread over here re: any (semi) secret spots that are still in existence. Don't go shouting about anywhere a local has been decent enough to take you where there aren't too many heads in the water - that person obviously thought you were capable of keeping your mouth shut, you weren't and you're right - they'll remember you. Loose lips sink trips.

ask around!!! - hey all keen bali goers...im a grom living in wollongong NSW. love 2500.heres the low down. ask around, even randoms out in the public dont be afraid get info take notes. visa to get into bali is roughly 25$US and you pay when you are getting off the plane. if your keen on tide info there is a surf shop in Nth Kuta,i think,called the Station. ask for a tide chart. rip curl provide them with these annually and it gives you a rough idea. dont surf what you have 'heard is good' ask taxi drivers where the best breaks are that are uncrowded.. and if they say ulu or kuta dont go!!!you can pick up if your lucky a local surfer who drives a taxi they take you to uncrowded spots and i was lucky to be taken to reefs just north of seminyak in what you think would be beach... make long time friends with a handful of useful locals... but be warned they will remember you!!! these people treat you like your family and will tell secrets of what they've heard or seen.... i ask questions and i feel i have a right to share the knowledge ive heard to others around the world.... remember 'search' for that perfect uncrowded line-up, and stay true to the surfing tradition. peace out. thanx to surfers who pass on info to keep the passion alive
