Keramas BeachEdit Spot
I think this spot is soooo fucking good, ultra sick, it's one of the world class waves in bali.
This and Nusa dua are the two spots i surfed the most when in Bali over the new year period... both were uncrowded, friendly and an awesome wave.
This spot has got the best wave and so relaxing.
Seemed to be no locals.. surfed here three days in a row and each time the minimal crowd was different... I also seemed to be the only European out each time. A fun wave that seems great for developing your lip tricks.. Nice strong take off and mellows out to a close out on the inside.
Just surf normaly, and take off faster than usual.
This is what would traditionally be a beach break.. the best place to line yourself up with is the single coconut tree left of the river mouth as you look to the beach from the surf, really nice sucky wave that seems to break over a reef very close to shore... only seemed to work on the high and mid tide break there are another three breaches within walking distance that break when this is not. You’ll go down a dirt road come to a dirt car park and walk onto the breach you’ll see a crowded break to the left and only a couple of people out to the right... This is keramus I found it to be an awesome break but given that its very far up the island you need a large swell to be moving through.
Just go through the new road that was made in sanur, and you will see a Keramas sign.
Head north... It is on the same side as Sanur, Nusa dua etc... Near Ketewel.. could quite possibly be on the same strech of beach as I never surfed Ketewel but I have a feeling they are pretty close as there is a series of four breaks near each other. There is a little blue sign on the right hand side of the road with keramus in yellow writing that heads down a dirt track... Rather hard to find.
