It's one of the most beautiful surfing barrels in the world. The so-called "Balinese Pipeline" is, at the same time, the best and most popular wave in Bali, Indonesia.
Welcome to surfers' heaven. This is it. Pure stoke, all around you. Enjoy the sights and take note: Padang Padang might be firing green barrels, but the ocean's floor not that friendly. This wave deserves respect.
Indonesia's premium tube riding experience can be quite picky. Only the bravest Indian Ocean swells will transform Padang Padang into a world-class coral reef break. That could be good news in case you're a beginner-to-intermediate surfer.

For many surfers, it's the ultimate wave. Welcome to the small island of Tavarua, in Fiji, where you won't find many things to do. That's it, you'll have to ride Cloudbreak.
Forget museums, historic buildings, and night life. You've probably traveled a long way to get to the Fijian island of Tavarua and enjoy the splendorous natural surroundings. There's blue water everywhere. And waves for all tastes.
But the truth is that if you're not an intermediate, skilled surfer, you should stay away from Cloudbreak. Even in its medium sized days, this wave hides many daunting secrets. The worst variable is, without a doubt, the shallow and sharp reef, which will rapidly tattoo your skin.
