Best Time to Surf?

Best Time to Surf?

Top surfing season in Bali is the dry season from April to September with peaks in summer months (July and August). Because at that time the Southern Hemisphere has winter and the cold air reaches higher towards the north. There is more mixing of the warm and cold air masses and these events are more intensive. As a result, there are numerous cyclones and storms over the Indian ocean which create more and higher waves. Predicting waves in Bali is not a very complicated science - just check the roaring 40's and if there is a cyclone/storm over there that's it - the waves will come. Some more local knowledge is needed to choose the right spot which depends on the tides and winds.

Crowds are a problem at any well-known surf spot. The number of people in the water is constantly high at all known spots in Bali. What varies over time is the ability of surfers in the water. When the crowds are high and competitive both can be aggressive - locals and tourists.
