Name Indonesia (Bali) surfing

Bali is one of the best spots in the world for surfing. That's the reason why I am going there. However, during my stay I also want to visit the area, know the Balinese and Indonesian culture, visit other places (Java, Lombok...) and have a great experience.

I am a begginer surfer (there are no waves in the place where I live in). It would be cool to meet other begginers to intermediate surfers in order to go together to the beach, share transport costs, take a look at the others in the water and have some beers after surfing...

I am looking for low budget accomodation because I will have to invest some money in transportation to the beach and get a surf board.

Hope to hear from you soon! Peace!

Jaian I'm planning my first trip to Bali specifically to learn to surf. There's places in Australia (eg. Sydney/Brisbane etc) where I could learn as well, but not only is Bali closer, but much cheaper. I can only go for a week if I go though, maybe 10 days at most. I'd like to hear more details about your planned trip, I might end up going...Bali is only a few hours flight from where I live.

Walls Hi Jaian! The fact is that I do not have specific plans yet. Only my trip dates. I will arrive on December 1 and will leave around mids january...

I have been looking for some info about Bali:
- Accomodation is cheap: Between 10-20 $/night (it is also possible get lower prices). Meals are also cheap.
- Depending on where you stay and where you wanna surf, it is recommendable to rent a motorbike (or a car for 3-4 people)
- Kuta is crowded and good for party but not for relax.
- You have to consider where you are going to surf (Kuta, Sanur, for begginers to intermediates) in order to choose accomodation and/or transport.

What I will do as soon as I get there is to visit a surfshop (I have a couple of contacts there) and ask for some advice about where to surf (and, therefore, sleep), where to get a motorbike (or other transport, if necessary), how to contact a cheap local surf instructor, etc.

Just let me know when you plan to go there. If we arrive on the same dates, we can share some surf lessons (and then go surf together and take a look at each other)

Keep in touch!

Jaian Hey Walls, I got a great discount on airfare to Bali ($137 return) but for March, so unfortunately can't make it on your trip. I'd like to hear how you go with your surfing expedition though, please do share your experiences next month! Regards, Jaian
