It is peak surf season in Indonesia right now and to date, it has been an incredibly consistent year for waves making for some amazing surf trips at every location. A real dream run

Bali based legend and 2014 Rip Curl Cup Champion, Garut Widiarta said,“We’ve had more big swells in the first couple of months of this season than we had all last year.”

Coastalwatch Chief forecaster Ben Macartney said, “It has been an exceptional Indo season thus far, and it looks like keeping on keeping on.

The number of past, present and future swell sources currently affecting Indonesia’s swell window are consistent and it looks like the swell will be non-stop across the archipelago well into August as one powerful groundswell after another keeps the surf pumping, day after day. It looks like being a long, standout season for 2017.

If you haven’t had the chance to escape to Indo or the Maldives yet, don’t despair, there’s still plenty time left in the season with a good two to three months of consistent swell and favourable winds remaining to get the waves of your life.

There's an incredible range of late Indonesian specials right now. So escape the Southern Hemi winter or early spring now and take advantage of the savings. Check them out HERE.
