Local Perspective: Padang Padang

Indonesian locals and legends take you inside the "swell of the decade"

Bali’s Bukit Peninsula is known for producing some of the best peeling lefthanders in the world and when it gets big, everybody heads to Padang Padang. The wave, very tricky and always changing depending on the tide, produces a rifling barrel that shoots out into a big, open channel. The people who negotiate the barrel best are the locals. Now stop and listen as these Bukit legends break down the swell that detonated the Indian Ocean, Padang Padang included.
