Bali beaches are just more than perfect for surfers where rolling waves and quiet beaches can be found in fractions of a second. Bali is home to many surf festivals and championships. The Bali surfing championship and event calendar display you all the thrills and rolls surfers are enjoying throughout the year. Few championships are held regularly and are part of competition tours authorized by Asian Surfing Championships (ASC). The championships demonstrate all the local, national and international surfing talent dominating the Island most famous and sometimes dangerous surf breaks.
Surfing is for people who are looking for something beyond mere swimming. It is certainly far above the delight and titillates you get from Jet ski, Parasailing or rather anything else wherein you are supported and accompanied by any third person. It is challenging, risky and far more sensational and adventurous than any other water sports. Novice swimmers must try surfing in proper professional guidance as it involves higher risk.
