Indonesia Stand Up Paddle Trip Exploring

Posted by Rich Price on

Indonesia is a beautiful place with mucho reef breaks, great food and the people are very welcoming. It does cost about $1300 USD from the east coast, but once there, its cheap. I traveled over to Bali from Hong Kong while I was doing quality control with our large order of Solace stand up boards back in early March 2016. A quick 5 hour flight and I arrived in paradise. I say quick because my last flight from Maryland to Hong Kong took about a day. Wheeew!

I hit up Uluwatu first. Took about an half an hour from the airport with a taxi. Although I was tired, I was wide awake gripping on my seatbelt as the cabby zoomed in and out of scooters and other cars. Scenery here was unreal and there were some cool bars located on the cliff that you could drink a Bing Tang while watching people surf the reef. You'll see this towards the end of the video.

I eventually made my way over to the east side of the island to Sanur. This spot was a little more resorts but still had some reasonable hotel accommodations. I was able to get a deal online for $49 a night in a place that was 1 block from the beach and was nice! You could paddle out for about a quarter mile and be into reef break. Pretty small the day I was getting footage but some locals were saying it gets about head high when you catch it right.

Check out a quick video we put together to try to capture my trip. There were many times where my old Gopro fogged up or battery was dead and I needed to just live in the moment with no camera, but I did manage to just scratch the surface with the footage I got.
