Surfing Indo in the wet season« on: April 29 2008 05:04:00 »
Hi, I'm seeking information and advice on surfing Indonesia in January to March. What islands and surf spots can be recommended at that time of year? What would the surfing conditions be like? Crowds? wave quality? swell size? anything!! thanks.

Both wet seasons in north and south of the equator can be typified with NW winds and less swell.
However the less people that go there means more waves for you.
If you want lefts there are less of them in the wet season but some left breaks are still ok wet season.
Wet season is generally righthander season, unless in the doldrums (100k either side of equater)
Where you see variable winds and more glassy surf.
More south, wet season is october to march, up north you will have to do some research as a lot of the breaks are not worth visiting any more and im not telling you everything...
Buy a few books like-
-Indo surf lingo,
And any others you can afford.
Also search google earth for waves, find out what areas have what winds..

actually i made a mistake...Wet season in the north of the equator has a lot more swell than its dry season.
