Indonesia has been pumping with perfect waves over the past month in a trend that looks set to continue all week and organizers will do all they can to deliver epic conditions at Balis now famous Keramas surf break. The break at Keramas is perfect for performance surfing offering fast hollow barrels along with numerous sections that beg for massive power moves across an ideal reef that generally breaks best at sizes from 4 to 10 feet (2 to 3 metres).
Australias Dean Bowen summed up the feelings of all surfers enthusiastically heading to Bali today saying, Surfing the Billabong Pro Junior in perfect waves with a waiting period in prime season is so good for us. Its super exciting knowing theres a swell forecast as soon as we arrive and competing at Keremas with just three in the water in perfect conditions will be amazing, we cant wait to get it on added Bowen.
