Located in West Bali, Indonesia, Old Man’s – Batu Bolong is an alright reef break that offers up some fatter, gentler right-handers perfect and a favourite of longboarders and SUP’ers. The waves here are pretty easy to surf and break for up to 200 meters over a coral reef.
What are the best surf conditions for Old Mans?
Gets good between waist high and double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard, fish, or shortboard here as the size picks up. This break is suitable for intermediate and advanced level surfers. The surf here is pretty consistent (6/10) and will generally have a crew on it (7/10). The best winds are from the Northeast. The best swells are from the South, Southwest, and West. Works best on low to mid-tide.
We recommend wearing boardshorts or a bikini year-round. In summer water temperatures rise to 28 degrees before dropping only to 25 degrees in the winter. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
