Canggu Surf Spots
The surf town of Canggu is famous for its world class surf breaks all within walking distance or a short motor ride of each other. At Echo Beach, there are a series of fast hollow breaks suitable for advanced surfers. The main break to the side of the sea wall is a hotly contested left hander breaking over a shallow reef. Next is the sandbar - a fast hollow left and right beach break. At the river mouth is a powerful right hander breaking over rock and reef. These breaks are where you will find the local and international rippers catching tubes and busting airs. Further North past the Rivermouth is a less crowded hollow left break accessed from Pererenan village.
South of Echo Beach, are mellower breaks suitable for beginners unless the swell is huge. Old man's is a right hander which can produce a long ride in bigger surf. Next door is Batu Bolong, a surf spot named after the unique rock at the water's edge. Now a favourite spot for longboarders and beginners, the wave breaks far out and rolls in gently. You can get super long rides here if you don't mind sharing and can weave your way through a crowd.
