Stop number three on this year’s WSL Championship Tour takes us to Kereamas in Bali.

The hotel and surrounding area has become luxury and a destination resort. Many bring their families and turn it into a full vacation. It’s a circus. A fun, luxurious circus with one of the most high performance waves you’ll ever see.
