Sailing Spot and Conditions
The best known Bali kitesurfing spot is at Sanur Beach on the south west of the island. Sanur offers a vast flat water area suitable for all levels with a beginners zone and wave spots at a number of offshore reefs.  Bali has long been estabished as a surfing spot with amazing surf on the south east and south west coast generated by the southern ocean swells. The best time to go is the dryer winter months from June - September with the best conditions and this is the high season. There is more wind at other times but this is unpredictable and can be very strong and gusty from monsoon weather patterns. The offshore reefs create an extensive, inshore flat -water cruising area with a variety of wave spots for all levels. Kite beach is the main kiting beach at the south of Sanur (downwind) with Baby Reef just offshore providing an ideal starting point for beginners and those new to the area. In the Dry Season (May-Sept) All along Sanur Beach are wave spots which can be accessed from all the launch points offering a range of conditions for into wave riding and jumping and flat water area and speed tracks. Each location offers differing wind strengths and wave sizing to allow you to find your ideal conditions.
