surfing in candidasa


have always been to legian/nusa dua before and taken a board every time - for various reasons we are going to candidasa this time (mid feb) and was not planning to take a board as i understood the beach/reef was not conducive then saw on the hotel site there were small clean waves breaking on the reef out front - I saw posts from 2009 which talked about secret spots nearby - can anyone enlighten me on the chances of a wave there in feb ( I dont expect top class, just a wave thats rideable??

Thanks david in Noosa

You will often get a body wave in Candidasa and/or good enough to take a boogie board out, but if you are looking for better surf, you could try Jasri (around 20 minutes noirth of CD by road). We have just returned from Bali and despite surf not expected at this time of year, we did find it a couple of days in Jasri (when the tide was right) - do bring your bootees or take care, as it's a rocky bottom and entering and exiting can be difficult at times, though my husband found if you do so near where the creek flows into the sea, there's less barnacles etc growing on the rocks and it makes for an easy time of it.

Hope you get some surf.
