SURF TRIP TO BALI« on: April 09 2009 03:04:00 »
hey, i'm planning on taking a surf trip to bali this july with a mate. we are both 18 years of age and both intermediate surfers.Were not too sure if going over there at 18 is to young as most people we have spoke to tend to go over when there older. Get in touch if you have any tips, advice or suggestions. Cheers

GO FOR IT! You're only young once, and Bali is awesome for 18 year olds! The people are very friendly, the surf has everything from fun beachies to death-defying coralreefs. Learn a little of the lingo and you'll make friends there for life. Believe me, chances are this won't be your first and only trip to this island paradise.
And now I apologize for plugging my book INDO SURF and LINGO but it's a good idea to get as much info as possible before you go. www.indosurf.com.au

Conner: You didn't say how long you're going to be in Bali. There are lots of descent, very cheap places in Kuta. However, I would recomend booking something for at least the first week. That way you'll have a place to go upon arrival, and you'll have some time to get the lay of the land. The less expensive places may not have direct booking online but many have email or you can phone to make a booking. Start w/ the Lonely Planet book on Bali and searching online, you'll find lots of places.

Just get there,
ask a driver to take you to a cheap spot near waves.
Booking online is a waste of money. Bali is super easy and accomidating.

I didn't say book online, I said SEARCH online! Also suggested 2 books that are very usefull. Unless they've traveled in that part of the world, I wouldn't suggest for an 18 year old to just show-up w/o some arrangements. You never know where a taxi driver will take you.
