Barrels For Days
If you want to practise barrel riding, Bingin in the go to location throwing multitudes of perfect barrels.

A name known across the world for a plethora of amazing waves. No matter the swell or conditions, there͛s waves at Uluwatu.
Our vastly experienced and qualified guides and instructors are frothing to get you onto Perfect Waves.
Uluwatu is the indicator break for the west side of the Bukit and very consistent, picking up any swell and never flat. The wide reef offers many different peaks which all turn on at different tide stages. Paddling out from the cave, The Peak is immediately in front of you. It͛s best from mid-high tide, whereas Outside Corners, the next break along the reef, only breaks at low tide on the biggest swells. Racetrack lives up to its name, as does Growers, starting at shoulder height and get bigger and bigger, the end section throwing a great barrel. Temples is a bit of a paddle from the main peak, so tends to be less busy and works best at mid-high tide. The Bombie will break on the biggest swells and is rideable at up to 30ft or even bigger! In general Uluwatu is best suited for the advanced surfers, but conditions are commonly appropriate for intermediate surfers.
Impossibles features 3 separate peaks on a wide reef- helping to breaks up the crowds. On the right conditions with a good size swell and offshore wind it is possible for the sections to link up and to get a ride of a mile or more to the warungs at Bingin. Impossibles is a fast racy wave and because of this it is almost explicitly for advanced surfers. However, it can be amazing for intermediates on smaller days.
If you want to practice barrel riding lefts – Bingin is the perfect location. It͛s a super consistent wave that throws out multitudes of perfect barrels. At low tide it can be very shallow and for expert surfers only. At high tide the wave breaks very soft and it͛s where Balinese children learn to surf. Mid-tide is best for intermediate surfers on a small day, but during the surf season it͛s mostly only suitable for advanced surfers. Due to the popularity of the beach with locals, it͛s advised to go with a Balinese surf guide.
Padang Padang is known as the Balinese pipeline as it is very similar to Hawaii͛s very own pipeline. It is a very fast long barrelling wave that lives up to its reputation as the most serious wave in Bali. The waves come in fast out of deep water and breaks over a shallow coral reef which makes the wave barrel (tube). It truly is one of our favourite waves and as such we are proud to sponsor the Ripcurl Padang Padang Cup. Expert surfers only.
PADANG PADANG RIGHTS
Padang Padang rights is also known as Baby Padang as it͛s a soft mellow break in stark contrast to its namesake. Located on the other side of the channel to the world famous Padang Padang, it͛s fantastic for kids, beginners and low intermediates offering a range of rideable waves – breaking both left and right. The left is a long ride and can be ridden almost all the way to Impossibles, whilst the right is a shorter ride that takes you back to the channel for an easy paddle back to the line-up.
Dreamland is a beautiful white sand beach a short walk from Impossibles & Bingin. Fantastic for beginner to intermediate surfers as there are many different breaks that work at different stages of the tide. The two main waves are an A-frame peak that works best at low tide on a big swell, and a punchy shore break suitable for aerials. Dreamland is the perfect location to spend the day surfing, sunbathing and hanging out in the local warungs.
The next break along the Bukit is Balangan, mere waking distance from Dreamland. Balangan is a stunning, peaceful, white sand beach; which is very quiet and relatively undeveloped, retaining that old Bali charm. The reef break is a fun left hander, however it͛s quite fast so wave selection and positioning is key. Very popular with intermediate surfers, but also suitable for beginner surfers on the smaller days. Balangan can be ridden at any tide, but low tide can be a bit challenging for novices and is therefore best on mid-high tide.
