Located in West Bali, Padma is a fun and ultra-consistent beach break that offers up some good sections for manoeuvres and the occasional barrel on the rights. The waves here can get challenging and break for up to 50 meters over a sand bottom.
What are the best surf conditions for Padma?
Gets good between waist high and double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard when smaller and a shortboard or a step-up as the size increases. This break is suitable for all levels of surfer. The surf here is consistent (7/10) and will generally have a crew on it (6/10). The best winds are from the East. The best swells are from the Southwest. Works on all tides.
We recommend wearing boardshorts or a bikini year-round here. The water temperatures climb to 28 in the summer and drop only to 25 in the winter. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
