The Bali surfing scene started along the island's southern shores, where rolling waves and quiet, beautiful beaches evolved into the popular wave riders' playgrounds we now today. The origin of surfing in Bali is down to the first wave-riding visitors who discovered the incredible waves in the 1930s, and more have flown in being drawn by Bali's sun, sea and surf ever since. Bali's surfer crowd comprises experienced riders and beginners who want a piece of the action. Pros can head to the outer reef breaks of the southern Bukit Peninsula, while newbies can opt for smaller waves in the lagoons. Bali is a great place to pick up the sport, with board rentals and surf schools widely available. Surf shops are also abundant, so you can easily source your wax, rashguards and any other gear you might need.
