 Additional Information

Uluwatu is the most famous wave of Bali. There is always some swell here so it's also always crowded. The spot offers several waves which are working with different swells and tides:
The Peak: best at mid and high tide. Closes out at low tide. In front of the cave. it's the most consistant. Short and powerful waves, tubes. The take off is moving. It works from 1ft to 8ft. The most crowded. One of the sections closes more than the others.
Racetracks: 100 meters further. fast wave, a lot of sections with easy tubes. Best at low tide and at 6ft. Can hold bigger swell. On the right tide and the right swell, "The Peak" connects with "Racetraks" (you need to be a good tuberider). Over 10ft, Racetracks breaks until "The Corner".
Inside Corner: best at mid and low tide with a 6ft swell. At first, it's a fun wave and the final bowl is a tube. Don't do a cutback just before the bowl! Take plenty of speed, stay high in the face and trim. You will pass the tube.
Outside Corner: the REAL Uluwatu. Works only with big swells (>8ft) and at low tide. The lower is the tide, the better is the wave. Take at least a 7' board. It is a succession of long walls good for carving and, sometimes, a beautiful final tube. The length is around 300 meters.
Temple: less surfed. 2 waves in fact ("Outside temple" and "The Bombies"). Only for experts because the water is very shallow. For thoses,it is a incredible tube when it works.

Surf Kayaks okay? - I just started riding waves and I use the gnarly surf Kayaks. I have surfed 2 foot waves before here in Michigan and I think I am ready for Uluvatos. If I use the orange arm floaties will it keep me from hitting the reef? I want to get a big tunnel ride when the rollers are big. Also, what part of Mexico is Bali in? To all the brown Mexicans and Puerto Ricans in bali I greet you with a Kawabunga!!! By the way, who is the big kahuna there. I want to bring him a gift of respect. Aloha brothers!

Bubble - Why is the OZy dude blamming the french and pommes for drop ins and seppos for paddling past and snaking people. Oh i forgot, Ozzies behave perfectly in and out of the water in Bali (yeah right). Just to let you know a lot of people from Europe surf well and we are not kooks. You are a ignorant for thinking you would get good Ulus without a crowd. I am from the UK and i surfed the spot pretty much every day for a month and did not drop in on one person (except for my friend). At the end of the day, people in the lineup will judge you on your first wave and you will be granted you spot in the pecking order. If someone snakes you then snake them back. They will not do it again. If you want uncrowded waves then dont get pissed in Kuta and go in at six in the morning.Easy
