Your Guide to Uluwatu Bali Ding Repair

The Best. The Cheapest. The Most Convenient.


Uluwatu is known for some of the best reef breaks in the world. They are unforgiving, powerful, and relentless on your body and your equipment. One thing is for sure on every surf trip. Dings happen. We have created a list to make your life easier when hunting for a shop to do the repairs.



Studio Repair


The best ding repair shop in the Bukit and located in the middle of the peninsula for easy access. However, it is also the most expensive! But when you buckle your brand new $800 LOST “Tube Pig”, the board doctors are where you want to get it fixed. All the local boys get their repairs done here because cost doesn’t matter when your boards need to be 100%. You get what you pay for. Your boards will be glad you did.




Uluwatu Beach

GOGO Ding Repair


Trek down the stairs under Single Fin, and you will find countless dive shops that can have your board fixed in less time than it takes you to finish your Bintang. Our favorite is GOGO Ding Repair. Experience. Check. Fast. Check. But you will pay for the convenience. If you want to shop around or GOGO’s is backed up, check out Dr. Ding and Cookie’s located next door.


Padang Padang Beach

Jockey’s Surf Shop


Padang is known for the heaviest reef break in all of Bali. If you put in enough hours surfing Padang left, it is only only a matter of time before another one bites the dust. Shit happens and your board needs a trip to the shop. Located about 150 yards up the hill across from the Padang Market is Jockey’s Surf Shop run by the dynamic duo Jockey and his wife. He takes great pride in the quality of his repairs and fixes each board as if it was his own.


Bingin Beach

Jelly’s Ding Repair


Bingin isn’t the biggest wave in Bali, but it breaks on the shallowest reef and works best in lower tides. Lucky for us, Jelly is always working and can have you back in the water in no time. There is no ding repair shop in the world that is more convenient than Jelly’s. Located on the sand at Bingin Beach, he has owned and operated his shop for over 25 years. His shop was one of the first buildings on the Bingin Cliff. Hand off your board to the Legend himself, have a bite to eat at Kelly’s Warung nextdoor, and you will be back in the lineup for the next set!



DNS Board Bags and Ding Repair


Most traveling surfers are on a budget tighter than Santa’s belt. If that’s the case, then DNS is your shop. DNS does a great job and is worth every penny. They might not have the carbon fiber rails, but they have great service and get you back on the water with a quality repair.
