Good-Epic: Keramas, Bali, June 24th

We’re mostly focused on wave quality here at Surfline. That’s kind of our whole purpose. But we’re also well aware that the act of surfing encompasses way more than just riding the actual wave — there’s a quality of experience that comes from the nuances of light, the texture of the water, the smell of the ocean, whether you put the correct wax on your board, how that last turn felt, what you’re gonna have for breakfast, etc. (BTW: breakfast is way easier to forecast.) And when we saw this empty, dreamy photo from Keramas from last week from Bali-based photog Federico Vanno, all of the regularfoots and at least half the goofyfoots stopped in their tracks and just stared. (Oh, and we did cover this same swell as it hit the Mentawais here. PS: According to the most recent reports, Bali plans to reopen for tourists in late July. So there’s that.)

Surfline Forecaster Matt Kibby explains: “The month of May ended with a bang — and it’s been busy in Bali ever since. A series of swells have rolled in over the past few weeks courtesy of an active Indian Ocean which saw a three preceding pulses warm up the basin before the fourth, and largest of June, claimed the title of strongest to date for the month. While the storm remained distant as it peaked in intensity (at least compared to its predecessor that delivered the end of May swell, which peaked in strength approximately 500 miles closer to the Balinese coast) it did make up some of that ground by boasting stronger peak seas over a larger swath of ocean. After a handful of travel days, the resulting swell was met with mellow tradewinds, marking a dreamy climax for a lengthy run of waves.”
