About Sanur

Sanur is a mythical wave in Bali, as tall tales abound about it being the most perfect wave on Bali. Like its dry season cousin Padang Padang, Sanur requires a huge swell to be hitting the coast. If Nusa Dua is over ten-feet, then there's a chance that Sanur could be firing, however, a long drive often ends in disappointment when Sanur is only three-feet and slightly onshore. When the swell is hitting Sanur at six-feet or more, and the wind is offshore or glassy, and the tide is mid low-high, Sanur can be a world-class wave as good as anywhere - a long, bowling wave with multiple barrel sections breaking over ultra-sharp, living coral. It is important for surfers to be aware of the tides. As the tide gets lower at Sanur the end section goes from dangerous but makeable to an almost sure trip for stitches at the local medical clinic. And when it gets real low, it's better to call it a day.
