Day trip to Balian

August 2017

On days where you feel like hitting the open road and escaping the crowds, why not consider a road trip to Balian? Only an hour and a half away from Seminyak and Canggu, this mostly deserted beach has similar waves but without the mayhem, however if you’re still a beginner it might not be the best place for you as the currents can be strong.

Currency in Bali

August 2017

Here are a few tips about the Indonesian currency

As you may have noticed the currency (Rupiah) is in thousands and hundreds of thousands so it can be over whelming at the beginning of your holiday. One nice thing though is that it is easy to be a millionaire. 1 million Rupiahs is equal to about 65€ (and 1€ about 15000 IDR).

Things to do in Bukit

August 2017

If you’re planning to stay at one of our Kima Surf Partner Camps near Uluwatu, you might be wondering what else you can do there besides eat sleep and surf. If you enjoy good music and stunning sunsets, one of our favourite places to be on a Wednesday and Sunday is Single Fin.

Facing the majestic waves of Uluwatu, Single Fin has been featured by Lonely Planet as one of the best bars in Bali to catch the sun as it disappears to the next day and we couldn’t agree more. You’ll be sure to watch a sunset to be remembered

How can we help the environment in Bali?

July 2017

Bali is a beautiful island and it’s no surprise that it attracts so many people from all across the globe. However the main problem this island is facing is the growing trash pollution on and around Bali. It can be pretty depressing seeing the amounts of trash on the beaches, in the ocean and in the rivers – especially if it has been raining. At our camp we do what we can not to add to the growing problem by providing non-plastic straws, offering refillable water bottles and the use of reusable bags free of charge for guests when they go shopping.

Basic Bahasa

July 2017

The Indonesian language, Bahasa Indonesian was introduced in 1945 after Indonesia’s declaration of independence. It is, therefore, a very young language and various slangs have developed very quickly, especially in the larger cities. 

At school, the children learn their island language plus Bahasa Indonesian, a bit like we learn a foreign language. 

The language is very simple. There are no articles and the verbs are not declined in tenses. Balinese is, on the other hand, a completely different language, which has nothing in common with Bahasa Indonesian. It is still spoken all over Bali and, with its three levels, it is very complex.

Our first time in Bali was awesome!

After visiting beautiful, beachy Nusa Lembongan and endlessly, green Ubud... it was time to head for Canggu. We planned to stay here for only 3 days but ended up staying for a week and still didn’t want to leave.

SURF WEAR

May 2017

Yes, surfing does look cool (if you’re doing it right). But the journey can be long to get to the point where wipeouts are rare and messing up your duck dives is a thing of the past. It might look easy but remember it is still a sport and takes a lot of practice. In the meantime, while you’re trying to get to that level why don’t I save you some embarrassment of returning to the beach in nothing but your birthday suit.
