INDO "PEAK SEASON" STARTS SOON
There have been great waves on Bali's East coast during the Wet Season, but soon the winds will swing, making the West coast start to turn on. Spots like Nusa Dua, Keramas and Turtle Island have been glassy since October last year, with many head high days. The Wet Season will finish soon, so crowds are still very light for the next few months. Usually from around April each year the sunshine and perfect offshore winds return. Early season Mentawai trips have already started. So plan your Indo surf trip soon!
Last year Bali's 2017 peak surf season started earlier than usual, with some great uncrowded sessions all over Indo starting in March. Last April and May were especially good and glassy. Then June kicked in with ultra-high tides and massive swells. July saw solid 8-10 foot swells at Padang-Padang, then again in August and September.. And remember, last year's El Nino conditions delivered epic "Best Waves of a Lifetime" with two huge swells in October and November, proving Indo can always turn it on.
* Last year many Bali flights were cancelled due to Volcanic ash from nearby East Java and Lombok. And now Bali's Gunung Agung volcano has started to rumble again. Although skies are still 100% clear now, make sure you get Travel Insurance the same day you book any flights or hotels. Then you'll be covered for any delays or expenses if a Volcano kicks up again, or you or family "break a leg" and have to cancel your trip before you even leave!
INDO SURF TRAVEL INSURANCE covers you for Cancellation costs, $25 Million Emergency Hospital and Medevac flights. Plus SURFBOARDS are covered up to $1,000 each - even IN USE surfing which most other companies do not offer. Get Your TRAVEL INSURANCE Here
