Here, Aloha Bali Surf wanted to highlight some of the main reasons that make Bali, Indonesia, one of the best places in the world for beginner’s Bali surf lessons.

1. Water Temperature

In Bali, Indonesia, there’s no reason to wear a wetsuit to combat those frigid waves. Since Indonesia is a tropical archipelago, its water temperature is perfect to surf without a wetsuit all year round. This makes it much easier for beginners to stand up on the board the first time.

2. The Waves

Another major reason that makes Indonesia, Bali in particular, one of the best places on Earth to learn to surf is the quality of the waves. The area has one of the most consistent swells in the world, building in South Africa and arriving at the reefs and tropical waters of Indonesia in perfect swell lines.

4. The Tides

In Indonesia, the tides are highly varied, making the same spot go from having the perfect longboard learning waves to smaller, easier waves in a manner of hours. As the tides change, so does the quality of waves, giving surfers a varied choice of waves to ride for their Bali surf lessons.

When compared to other surf spots around the world, like Hawaii or Portugal, Indonesia is much cheaper. Getting there is the biggest expense but once you’re there, everything from food to lodging is a fraction of the price of other surfing destinations.
