Indonesia has two distinct seasons, wet (off-peak) and dry (peak). The dry season (April to September) offers the best surf conditions, favourable winds from the S-SW, and long periods of light to no winds.
The wet season (October to March) has more rain but cooler temperatures than the dry season. Swell isn’t as consistent during the wet season, but some areas like the east coast of Bali and Sumatra still have good, consistent swells and light winds.
While many surfers rush to surf Indonesia in the dry season, surfers who visit in the wet season are often rewarded with fun, empty waves. World Surfaris offers surf trips all-year-long, throughout the wet and dry seasons.
Dry Season: April – September
Wet Season: October – March
