Hay There

Surfing Bali’s Great Hay Kuta

A trip to Bali is never a hard sell. With volcanoes begging to be hiked, exotic wildlife to explore and more temples than you can count, it's a wonder that you'll be able to find time to sprawl on the sandy white beaches (though we're fairly confident you'll manage). But when you're ready to take a break from taking a break, there's another activity waiting to be discovered: surfing the great Hay Kuta, one of the biggest and best wave breaks on the island.

If you need a place to hone your Endless Summer technique, the
Pro Surf School has you covered. Their lessons range from a half day to seven days, depending on your level of physical commitment…as well as the amount of time you've allotted for simply sitting beach side, staring into the blue abyss. Classes cover all levels, from the most basic: positioning, standing up and catching waves, to advanced: short boards, duck dives and "surf etiquette," (because good manners are in style where ever you go).

 
Guest houses are available for rent if you need a place to crash after a long day in the waves, but if you prefer a little luxury with your surf wax, the Grand Istana Rama Hotel is just a few sandy steps from the beach. The relaxed, friendly atmosphere reflects the steady surfer clientele (it fronts Hay Kuta, making it the go-to spot), and the surrounding gardens serve to remind you that you're back on land. Head out to the pool, swim up to the bar and enjoy a cocktail in the setting sun. And if you start to miss the feeling of the water beneath your feet, feel free to head back out to the ocean.

We're sure you won't be the only one.
