LITTLE ABOUT SURFING ON BALI
Waves on Bali were already being surfed
by both foreign and local surfer as early as the late 1930s. So it's not

Balian & Madewi
The word Balian
means 'sacred' or refers to 'trance healer'. It's about one and a half
hours away from Kuta. Balian's lefts are usually longer and better shaped
than its right. Madewi is less consistent than
Balian. Best surfing is from mid to high tide. It's not so frequent visited

Sanur and its adjoining reefs are best
