There are plenty of surf schools in Bali. Most of them are located in Kuta, Seminyak, Canggu, and few in Padang-Padang. Most surfers gravitate towards Kuta for all its post surf activities. Saturated with bars, restaurants, and clubs in every corner, you might find it hard to motivate to surf the next day after an all night extravaganza. Canggu and Padang-Padang is the opposite, with less distractions and more laid back. For those who want a peaceful and tranquil surf adventure, taking surf lessons in this area is recommended.
Bali surf conditions can be very tricky and no two surf spots are alike. Going to a surf school or hiring a guide is a must, so save yourself time and frustration trying to figure out when exactly is the best time for you to surf.
