Impossibles: it doesn't always live up to its name

They call it one of the most photogenic waves on the planet. And there is a good reason for that. Watch Impossibles making magic.

Impossibles is a temperamental reef break that comes alive when powerful S/SW swells hit the south coast of Bali and meet gentle SE trade winds.

The left-hand wave breaks between Padang Padang and Bingin and offers a fast barreling wave that peels down the line for up to 450 yards, in special occasions.

On August 16, 2018, the infamous break delivered the goods. Yes, there were a few sectioned out waves, but there were also world-class rollers that made Impossibles look possible.

According to local surfers, the footage was shot at mid-tide, on a 16-second period swell window. For many, it was an epic day of surfing, providing waves of a lifetime.

Actually, some of the waves look makeable for the average rider with easy duck dives and regular take-offs. Are you ready to book a flight to Bali?
