Hay I spent a month in Bali last year learnt to Surf. It can be quite intimidating on your own, I was only on my own for about ten days but you will make friends! Kuta is the obvious place to head first up if you wana meet people, but then it's crowded. Dreamland is gorgeous if you want some piece and quiet...
When are you planning on going? I'm hoping to head back for a month in August/September

I was in Indo for about three months. I loved it, and I would love to go back, but I will never go on my own again. I hope...
A lot of thing get easier when you have a travel mate, especially as a girl things can be pretty agonizing at times if you're there on your own. On top of that it is surprisingly difficult to get into contact with other travellers. Everyone's got their own schedule/agenda and are pretty unvilling to get to know new people. Shocking but true. Very different from for ex Thailand. Perhaps it's totally different if you are there when it is supercrowded. I was there just before highseason.

I am looking for a travel mate myself as I'm going back for a couple of months this spring hopefully. I'm older than you, but I don't mind. When are you looking to go?
As for crowds, I think July and August are the most crowded months. I arrived in
March last spring and the rainy season was not completely over. April and May were amazing !!! Almost no people and beautiful surf. (March was still partially messy). In June the crowds slowly picked up, and is a good time to leave unless you like water wrestling.
So I guess I would try to go in April and May.
Anyone looking for a travelmate, welcome to email me.

hi joey and everybody!
I'm 21 years old from Jakarta, Indonesia, and am planning to go to bali to learn surfing for the first time in August or September.
When will you ladies come to Bali?
I think Bali will be so crowded in May, June, and July where most Indonesian ppl will have a trip to Bali coz they're havin their long holidays between those months.
If you don't mind having beginner surfer as a travel mate, it would be great. You can contact me @ my email address: email@example.com
Oh, and FYI I'm planning to take classes from surf school in Bali.
Thanks, hope to hear from all of you ;)
