Indonesia is made up of roughly 17,000 islands, which is why it is one of the world’s top surf destinations. Whether you’re in the mood for some surfing and fun or you just want to catch some waves and relax, Indonesia will cater to your every need. Book your spot on an Indonesia surf trip and hang loose in one of the world’s best surf destinations.
With its hot and tropical weather and thousands of islands, Indonesia is a true surfer’s paradise. The warm and shifting ocean currents make Indonesia great for year-round surfing. The most popular surf season in Indonesia is the dry season (April to October), with swells up to 4 meters in Sumatra or Bali. July seems the best month during this season with blue skies, sunshine most days, and offshore wind on the west coast. The dry season is also perfect for combining your surfing trip with outdoor activities and island exploration. Nevertheless, this is also the busiest and most touristic season, especially in Bali.
Surfing during the wet season in Indonesia is just as good, as there’s not much difference between the two seasons in terms of surfing. Although known as the ‘off-season’, the wet season (November to March) is better for advanced surfers with a stronger ocean, fewer crowds, and ‘right-hander’ waves. The major difference between the seasons is in the wind and swell patterns, giving you better surf conditions in Eastern surf spots. Nevertheless, there are greater chances of flooding during the wet season, which makes it sometimes harder to reach secluded surf spots on the islands.
