Padang Padang

Padang Padang only starts to work when we have a big swell running. A sealed road will take you all the way to the top of the stairs that take you down to a beautiful beach in front of the reef. With easy paddle out through the channel.

Crowd Factor
Padang Padang because of it’s world wide fame can get dangerously crowded. There are usually heavy vibes in the water, and tempers often flare due to drop ins. But if you catch it early morn with the right conditions it’s something you will remember for the rest of your days.

    Had this place almost to myself in December 09. Lots of people on the beach but hardly any surfers. Perfect little barrels for hours. First time surfing there for me and I’ll never forget the long curling rides I got.
    I’ll keep that memory for a very long time.
