Surfing in Bali

Surfing Bali
Bali is synonymous with surfing with its famed breaks of Uluwatu, Canggu and Kuta Reef just to name a few.
It’s ok if you have been to Bali many times but what if it’s your first time to Bali or you have come to learn to surf or just fell in love with the water and thought you would give it a try.
How do you decide which operator to use from the myriad of Learn to Surf and surf guides in Bali.
Well we can help you with this as we highly recommend Ur-Surf with many years of happy clients, their main goal is to create a perfect surf experience for you.
Ur-Surf provides professional surf guides, use high quality equipment and conduct only small classes.
Safety first in combination with fun and quick progress is the soul that runs through Ur-Surf.
Our different levels of surf guiding provide the right guiding for everyone from total beginner to intermediate surfers. There is a strict rule of only 3 participants to every surf guide offering a really personal and professional experience.
In order for you to have as perfect surf experience as you have imagined we also need to find a good time for your surf. Since good surf depends on the conditions of the ocean which are influenced by tide, swell and wind, not every time is a good time to surf. Of course we can’t influence nature but we can find the best possible time and place for your surf guiding.
Simply let Ur-Surf know on which days you would like to take your surf guiding or lessons and they will try to find the best suitable time for your surf experience.

Surf Guiding for Beginners
This level is designed for total inexperienced persons or for those who already tried to surf but were not able to stand up yet.
Our surf guide will give you a theoretical instruction about surfing in general and then about the spot where your surf guiding takes place. He will make sure that you know exactly how to act and react in the ocean before entering the water. You will also practice the “take off” (stand up) movement on the beach because after that it will be much more easy to realize it in the water.
After that it’s for real. In the ocean you will soon see and feel what surfing is about and with your guide by your side you can try to catch the waves with the good feeling to know that there is someone around taking care for you.
All spots we choose for beginners are already “real surf spots” but they are beginner friendly.
One session takes normally between 2 and 2.5 hours depending on the condition of the participant. We provide the Surfboard, wax (for the board) and a Lycra for sun protection.
Please bring your own towels and sun screen. We recommend that you don’t have a full meal directly before the surf session but make sure you drink enough water before the session.

Surf Trips

Bali’s coastline is packed with great surf spots but not all of them are in the touristic areas like Kuta or Seminyak. With our surf trips you have an easy and relaxed opportunity to visit more of Bali’s surf spots. You can choose from one of the example tours or we can design a tour individually for you. All of our trips include: -pick up at your place of residence
-transport to the surf spot in an air conditioned car
-2 sessions of surf guiding at the surf spots.
Please bring your own towels and sun screen.
You have the possibility to book additionally a surf photographer to capture your surf on picture.
Example Balian:
Balian is a beautiful surf spot at the river mouth of the Balian River. The spot offers left and right hander waves on a semi reef break. Booties are recommended.
On the beach are nice cafes where you can relax between the surf sessions and enjoy some good food while watching the other surfers. It’s also perfect if you want to bring some non surfing friends since this is such a nice place to spend the day.
We will pick you up in the early morning between 4.30 and 5a.m. so you can enjoy good morning surf (dawn patrol) in Balian. These early hours provide the best waves, most glassy faces and a less crowded Line Up. After that you can have your breakfast, take a nap or just relax a little before entering the water again. You will spend a great day with a lot of surfing at this nice place and afterwards we will bring you back to your place of residence where you will arrive approximately around 8p.m.
Prices:
1 person = 700.000rp./session (aprox us$80)
2-6 persons = 600.000rp. per person / session (aprox us$75)

Example Bukit

Bukit is the half island in the south of Bali with lots of surf spots. It’s there where you can find such famous names as “Uluwatu”, “Impossibles” and “Padang Padang”. The south Bukit area often catches a little more swell than the rest of the island and is known for its clean and clear water.
For the Bukit trip we will pick you up between 5 and 5.30a.m. and then visit 2 or 3 different surf spots of this area regarding to your wishes and the surf conditions. At most of the surf spots you will find some small warungs which are local shops where you can get refreshments and simple food.
Since there are many reef breaks we recommend booties for this trip.
On Bukit you can also find one of the three main temples of the island, the famous Uluwatu Temple. If you wish some cultural experience you could visit this temple after the surf sessions. The famous “Fire Dancers Show” is shown there every day at 6p.m. and for sure an attraction. Entrance Fee for the temple and the show are additional costs but anyway worth it.
The time you will be back at your place of residence depends on whether you would like to visit the temple and show or not.
Prices:
1 person = 700.000rp./session (aprox us$80)
