The Perfect Wave
Somewhere around the world right now someone is scoring the perfect wave! It could be off a surf boat in the Mentawais, an isolated island reef break in Samoa, a perfect point break in South Africa or riding a long board on a beach break in Hawaii. Whatever your perfect wave is, we can get ...
Bali and Lomboks's fabled reefs and booming beach breaks are in season between April and October when swell swinging up from the Roaring 40s and Howling 50s march south-west across the Indian Ocean and the trade winds blow from the south-east. Even during the off season when the trade winds switch to west there are still classic waves to be had. Sea and air temperatures remain steady at around 28Â°C or 82Â°F. Pioneered in 1936, by Bob Koke, a Californian from Hawaii and later by the likes of Jerry Lopez. Perfection like this has a price, paid in the form of crowding, excess development coupled with littered and polluted beaches around the main centres such as Kuta. Famous breaks like Uluwatu always have a crowd but for the surfer prepared to travel adventure and uncrowded waves await.
From luxury yachts to fishing boats, boat trips often include great food, private cabins or shared rooms and are a good, fast way to get to the best hard to reach spots.
