Best beginner spot in Indonesia« on: March 30 2016 19:03:00 »
I am currently in southeast asia and want to learn to surf somewhere. After doing some research it seems like indonesia has a plethora of surf spots for all skill levels. I would like to know which spot has the best combination of good waves and a good area to stay. I have read all about kuta and how nice it is for beginners, but the hectic pace of the town isnt exactly what im looking for. I would appreciate suggestions about other good spots around indonesia.

Kuta is indeed hectic. Try Canggu or Padang Padang on the Bukit, the inisde of Padang is a good beginners and intermediate spot

Cimaja was my first spot to surf.
Less crowd, beach break, from unique to inexpensive stay, great experiance and community as well. I have some friends either lifeguard and surf instructure

I went to Kuta 1 year ago and I really appreciated. It is one of the only beaches in Bali with sand and no reef, so it's the most secure place for learning surf.
Actually, I took surf lessons at Bali Ocean Surf because the instructors speak english, french and bahasa. It was a very cool experience and a learned a lot about surfing.
