Padang-Padang is known as a long, hollow, and steep wave that breaks over a sharp and shallow section of reef. It was first surfed in 1972. Often called the pipeline of Bali, on a great day surfers can expect to sit pretty deep in the barrel for up to 20ft or so. Padang Padang is a little finicky, and while it can still be fun year-round under a myriad of conditions, the orchestra of wind, swell, period, and tide must all be playing in synchronicity to break in perfection.
