The Right Board For The Right Wave


This post is written on 2018, but the VISA extension process is always changing. And so this post is updated to Sept 2019 and we will always try to keep it up to date.


There seems to be a lot of confusion on the subject of extending a Visa on Arrival in Bali and the rest of Indonesia. Probably because it’s difficult to find any official information on how to extend your visa but you have two options.


The only information you can get is from someone who already extend their visa. We will break down both methods and explain the pros and cons of each.

Things to know before booking your flight to Bali

Before being allowed to board your flight to Bali, depending on your departure airport or airline, you may be required to show your exit tickets from Indonesia before being allowed to board your flight to Bali. (Technically travelers are required to show proof of exit of any country when entering on a standard visa.) Keep in mind even with a visa on arrival extension you can only stay in Bali for 60 days maximum.


If you are coming to Bali for 30 days or less most countries (exactly 169 countries) are allowed to enter free for 30 days. Once you enter Bali this visa CAN NOT be extended. If later you decide to stay longer you will need to leave the country and reenter.


If you plan on staying in Bali for 31 to 60 days, DO NOT opt for the free 30 day VOA, as it can not be extended. Instead, purchase the $38 USD (thanks Morgan for the update) Visa on Arrival at the immigration counter at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport, which can be extended up to 60 days. The 60 day visa on arrival is not equal to 2 months. The day you arrive counts as day 1, so avoid any trouble by counting your days correctly! The fee for overstaying your Visa is now 1,000,000 IDR per day (2019 update).


Give yourself at least 14 business days (or more) to take care of your VOA extension, and pay special attention to holidays and local celebrations when the offices will be closed, which could cause delays. This process must be started before your original 30 day visa has expired or you will be fined 1,000,000 IDR per day until you start the visa extension process.

If you are already in Bali, then...

Some of you reading this may already be in Bali and trying to find the best information out there about extending visa. In this case, see which Visa you have. Did you buy the VOA at the immigration counter in Ngurah Rai airport or you are one of 169 countries that can enter visa free? If you buy the VOA then you have time to take care of extension. If you enter visa free, then you need to do Visa Run.

THE VISA RUN

As you enter Bali Visa Free, then you only have 30 days staying here. You can't extend in anyway around. There are maybe some agents that say they can do it, but it's not legal and may cost you alot. The only way you can extend your visa in such condition is The Visa Run.Basically you need to leave Indonesia, book and fly to Singapore. It is cheap, may cost you only around 100-200USD round trip. On your arrival in Bali, make sure you opt for the 38USD VOA at the immigration counter.

Tip: Always keep your exit ticket & never mention you are on Visa Run. If you arrive in Singapore (or any other countries that you want to do visa run) just say that you are there to meet friends or work stuff. Last, always try to find out about other countries visa policy to which you are flying.

The 2 options of Visa Extension in Bali

Extend your Visa on Arrival yourself or let an agent do it for you. Hiring an agent will cost you a fair bit of money, however doing it yourself will cost you a fair bit of time. Doing it yourself will cost IDR355.000 (2019 update: it's now IDR500.000 per extension) and an agent will cost you around 700,000 and 900,000.


If you decide to do it yourself you will be required to go to an immigration office 3 times. Or if you hire an agent you will only be required to go to the immigration office once to get your fingerprints and photo taken. 


If you choose to extend the visa yourself. We will break down what you will need to do for your 3 visits to immigration.

DAY ONE: DROPPING OFF YOUR PASSPORT AND PAPERWORK

For your first visit you will need to show up before 11AM and bring everything on the list below. Getting copies done around Bali is easy there seems to be a copy & print shop on every corner, you can email them or bring a thumb drive.There are currently 3 immigration offices in Bali. Since you’ll need to go to the same office a total of 3 times (likely all within a week to 10 days), you’ll want to choose the one that’s most convenient. 

  1. Nusa Dua (South Bali) – Formerly the office on Ngurah Rai Bypass Road in Kuta, it has now moved to Jl. Taman Jimbaran no.1, Mumbul, Kuta Selatan, District Nusa Dua, Bali.
  2. Renon (Denpasar, Southeast Bali) – Jl. D.I. Pandjaitan No.3, Dangin Puri Klod, Denpasar Timur, Bali. Phone: 0361.227.828
  3. Singaraja (North Bali) – Jl. Seririt, Desa Pemaron, Singaraja, Kec. Buleleng, Bali. Phone: 0362.321.74

WHAT TO BRING FOR EXTENSION

  • Black ink pen.
  • Bring your passport.
  • Provide one copy of your passport picture page.
  • Provide one copy of your visa.
  • Provide one copy of your plane ticket for departure.
  • Remember, every day you are in Indonesia counts as a full day.
  • 500.000 IDR (around $35USD). You can pay on your first or second visit.

Give yourself at least 7 business days (or more) to take care of your VOA extension, and pay special attention to holidays and local celebrations when the offices will be closed, which could cause delays. Offices are typically open from 8am to 4pm (and closed from 12 to 1pm for lunch), Monday through Friday.

Once you arrive, visit the front counter and they will prove you have all the correct paperwork and copies. You will get a form that you have to fill in.

Fill out the paperwork provided, and after that get a queue ticket. Make sure your queue ticket start with letter A. Then just wait for your number to be called to turn in your paperwork.

A quick tip: make sure you fill all the paperwork before going to the officer. Or else, they may not serve you even when your ticket number is called.

DAY TWO: YOUR VISA PHOTO AND FINGERPRINTS

Make sure you get back to the immigration office according to the schedule given on Cover Letter of Payment. The fee for visa extension is now IDR500.000 as per 2019. You will be required to pay that amount after your second day.The photo machine breaks down all the time so this will likely be your longest day. Upon your arrival, head directly to Counter 2 or 3.

Hand them your documents and they’ll give you a ticket with a number starting with the letter D . Wait for your number to be called over the loudspeaker. Once called, go to the photo desk and hand over your ticket. They will take your photo and scan your fingerprints as fast as possible. They will stamp your paper with a date on when to return to pick up your passport. You will be required to make your 500,000idr payment the same day.

You can pay your fee at most banks or any Indonesian Post office. At the Nusa Dua office they have a post van parked outside and you can pay super quick and easy.

DAY THREE: PICK UP YOUR PASSPORT

Most of the time you will be instructed to come back within a week to pick up your passport. But don’t worry if you can’t come on the given day, if you come a few days after the date to pick it up you will be fine. Head to window 3 give them your ticket and wait for them to call your name. Pick up your passport with your visa extension when called and sign the register. Before you leave, check to make sure the dates are right. This is very important as it is not uncommon for Bali Immigration Offices to make mistakes. Check it at the counter because once you leave, it will be a lot harder to come back and get things fixed.

I want to live in Bali forever...

Yeah, this is Bali & everyone wants to! Unless you change nationality and have KTP (national identity card) then you need to always take care of your Visa.There are some Visas that can make you stay longer than 60 days, you can apply for a social visa, 60 Day Tourist Visa, Multiple Entry Business Visa or even a Kitas. But you need to repeat the visa application and extension process over and over again.


Shopify doesn't allow us to reply to your comment here. If you need help, maybe have a lot of question you can e-mail us at joe@ekumenik.com. We'd be happy to help you with the information regarding this visa extension. Anyway, enjoy your stay and holiday here in Bali.

Bali News!

A surfers' quiver is the mechanics tool box, you need the right board for the right job. Having the right tool for any job is make or break. Surfing is no different, having the right board for the given conditions and your abilities can be the difference in catching 0 waves or 20.


When choosing the right board volume is your friend. Volume is the measurement of how much floatation the board has. Especially when learning to surf, the more volume the better. It will make paddling easier and give you more stability when your riding the wave. But it doesn't stop there, you need to know about shapes, height, and the fundamental behind it. And that's a lot. So instead, here we will talk about the different styles of waves and the recommended surfboard for the most fun.


To the average person, a wave is a wave, same same but different. However, for a surfer, each wave is unique and every beach has its own style of wave. Even the same wave at the same spot will change hour by hour. Wind, tide, swell height and direction will all affect the wave quality of the surf. As a beginner, you need to know how to read wave, so you can surf based on your ability and pick your very first surfboard.

Beginner Wave

Recommended Surfboards : DHD Mini Twin, Pocket Knife

A beginner wave is normally a slow breaking smaller wave. Any surf spot can be great for beginners. Most of the time you would want to surf the break on a high tide with a smaller swell, this will make it more fun and easier.


The MINI Twin and Pocket Knife both are higher volume boards, perfect for softer flatter waves. Twin fins offer a maneuverable and fast ride to surfers. Their quickness and ability to make sharp turns makes them a great choice for small conditions, but they can also be used in medium sized clean surf.The low rocker of the Pocket Knife creates speed in small conditions while maintaining maneuverability. 

Best Beginner Waves in Bali:

  1. Kuta Beach
  2. Jimbaran
  3. Old Mans
  4. Padang Padang (Baby Padang),

Point Break

Recommended Surfboards : DHD Skeleton & Pyzel Pyzalien

Point Breaks are known as some of the best waves on earth. A point break can work with a sand bottom or reef. Breaking along a headland or down a stretch of beach instead of towards the beach. This leads to point breaks being the longest waves in the world. Point breaks can also be mellow and great for beginners or hollow dangerous waves over shallow sharp reef. Some can even be both depending on tide and size of the swell. The recommended surfboards are DHD Skeleton Key & Pyzel Pyzalien.


The Skeleton Key is a great board for slightly bigger and faster waves. Also, it offers a 5 fin set up and gives you the option to switch between a quad fin set up and a traditional thruster. It carries more volume and width through the nose which gives you more speed and carry though the racey sections.


The Pyzalien can take the place of any high-performance shortboard. The Pyzalien is fast and easy to paddle while still being loose on the backfoot giving you the ability to perform tight turns in the pocket of the wave.The board has quick speed from take-off and great responsiveness. The outline has a fuller nose and wider tail which keeps the board very fast, while increasing the control and allowing for easier rail to rail transitions at high speed.

Big Wave

Recommended Surfboards : Pyzel Padillac

Big wave surfing is the next level surfing. We are not talking about a 10 foot wave we are talking big! 20 feet and bigger, really big waves! For the average surfer, we don’t want anything to do with this. It’s more about survival than about surfing. Big wave surfing is a league all its own. And you need Pyzel Padillac to beat the wave.


Like the name implies, this board is built to paddle fast and easy, with extra thickness and a fuller outline than most standard guns so you can catch and ride bigger waves with confidence and ease. It has a clean, flowing rocker, and a light vee bottom with double concaves to give you speed and quick turning, while still maintaining control in heavy surf...It comes as a quad, for both speed and maneuverability, and can handle anything the ocean throws at you.

Best Big Waves in Bali

  1. Impossibles
  2. Uluwatu
  3. Padang Padang

Beach Break

Recommended Surfboards : Pyzel Radius

Beach breaks are exactly what you would think, a wave that breaks over a sand bottom. Most of the time they are fast and hollow not leaving much room for error. Sand is always moving on the seabed, which means it is constantly changing. But a surfer can get lucky and the sand banks can hang around producing fun playful surf before the currents change affecting where the sand rests.


Jordy Smith's choice for best board in 2017's Stab In The Dark. The Radius is designed to be ridden fast and loose in above average to great surf, the Radius has a smooth, medium/high bottom rocker for easy turning and a single concave to add lift and drive. The gentle hip in the outline keeps it lively and sharp, while adding drive. The Radius is as high performance as we go, so not the best choice for beginners, but if you are looking to elevate your surfing up another level this board will get you there.

Reef Break

Recommended Surfboards : Pyzel Ghost

Reef breaks are a favorite for most all surfers. Most of the world’s best waves are reef breaks. At reef breaks the waves break over a reef shelf or a rock bottom. Having a permanent seafloor offers a more consistently shaped wave changing with swell direction, tide, and wind. But with the best waves also come the biggest dangers, reefs are hard, sharp, and very unforgiving when you come in contact after a wipeout.


Originally designed for performance in hollower, more powerful types of waves. The thickness is pushed forward, which helps with getting you into waves easily, and kept the tail and rails thinned out to help hold through barrels and turns at speed. The rocker is med/low through the front half to get you into waves easily and pick up speed quickly. The rear end has plenty of rocker curve for turning control and a snappy responsiveness.


Single concave runs through the entire bottom, with a double concave set inside, which equals speed and lift both on a rail and over flat spots while allowing for quick rail-to-rail transitions. The Ghost's combination of rocker and concave makes for high performance handling through a healthy mix of sensitivity and control.

In this article we talked about the different types of waves and the recommended board for each wave. However, when traveling or when starting to surf owning 10 different boards doesn't make sense. Luckily there is one board that is almost perfect for all conditions and can handle everything you can throw at it.


The Shadow is designed to give all surfers the advantages of a wider, forward outlined type of board, but in a sleek, High Performance package. It has a gentle hip for added sensitivity and looseness, and the squash tail is pulled in a touch to tighten the turning radius and improve vertical surfing capability. Tail rocker and bottom concave remain similar to the Phantom, already proven to work well in everyday conditions around the world.

The Shadow is designed to give all surfers the advantages of a wider, forward outlined type of board, but in a sleek, High Performance package. It has a gentle hip for added sensitivity and looseness, and the squash tail is pulled in a touch to tighten the turning radius and improve vertical surfing capability. Tail rocker and bottom concave remain similar to the Phantom, already proven to work well in everyday conditions around the world.

How to get to the Nusa Island & their surf breaks

A surfers' quiver is the mechanics tool box, you need the right board for the right job. Having the right tool for any job is make or break. Surfing is no different, having the right board for the given conditions and your abilities can be the difference in catching 0 waves or 20.


When choosing the right board volume is your friend. Volume is the measurement of how much floatation the board has. Especially when learning to surf, the more volume the better. It will make paddling easier and give you more stability when your riding the wave. But it doesn't stop there, you need to know about shapes, height, and the fundamental behind it. And that's a lot. So instead, here we will talk about the different styles of waves and the recommended surfboard for the most fun.


To the average person, a wave is a wave, same same but different. However, for a surfer, each wave is unique and every beach has its own style of wave. Even the same wave at the same spot will change hour by hour. Wind, tide, swell height and direction will all affect the wave quality of the surf. As a beginner, you need to know how to read wave, so you can surf based on your ability and pick your very first surfboard.

Beginner Wave

Recommended Surfboards : DHD Mini Twin, Pocket Knife

A beginner wave is normally a slow breaking smaller wave. Any surf spot can be great for beginners. Most of the time you would want to surf the break on a high tide with a smaller swell, this will make it more fun and easier.


The MINI Twin and Pocket Knife both are higher volume boards, perfect for softer flatter waves. Twin fins offer a maneuverable and fast ride to surfers. Their quickness and ability to make sharp turns makes them a great choice for small conditions, but they can also be used in medium sized clean surf.The low rocker of the Pocket Knife creates speed in small conditions while maintaining maneuverability.

  2. Jimbaran
  3. Old Mans
  4. Padang Padang (Baby Padang),

Point Break

Recommended Surfboards : DHD Skeleton & Pyzel Pyzalien

Point Breaks are known as some of the best waves on earth. A point break can work with a sand bottom or reef. Breaking along a headland or down a stretch of beach instead of towards the beach. This leads to point breaks being the longest waves in the world. Point breaks can also be mellow and great for beginners or hollow dangerous waves over shallow sharp reef. Some can even be both depending on tide and size of the swell. The recommended surfboards are DHD Skeleton Key & Pyzel Pyzalien.


The Skeleton Key is a great board for slightly bigger and faster waves. Also, it offers a 5 fin set up and gives you the option to switch between a quad fin set up and a traditional thruster. It carries more volume and width through the nose which gives you more speed and carry though the racey sections.


The Pyzalien can take the place of any high-performance shortboard. The Pyzalien is fast and easy to paddle while still being loose on the backfoot giving you the ability to perform tight turns in the pocket of the wave.The board has quick speed from take-off and great responsiveness. The outline has a fuller nose and wider tail which keeps the board very fast, while increasing the control and allowing for easier rail to rail transitions at high speed.

Big Wave

Recommended Surfboards : Pyzel Padillac

Big wave surfing is the next level surfing. We are not talking about a 10 foot wave we are talking big! 20 feet and bigger, really big waves! For the average surfer, we don’t want anything to do with this. It’s more about survival than about surfing. Big wave surfing is a league all its own. And you need Pyzel Padillac to beat the wave.


Like the name implies, this board is built to paddle fast and easy, with extra thickness and a fuller outline than most standard guns so you can catch and ride bigger waves with confidence and ease. It has a clean, flowing rocker, and a light vee bottom with double concaves to give you speed and quick turning, while still maintaining control in heavy surf...It comes as a quad, for both speed and maneuverability, and can handle anything the ocean throws at you.

Best Big Waves in Bali

  2. Uluwatu
  3. Padang Padang

Beach Break

Recommended Surfboards : Pyzel Radius

Beach breaks are exactly what you would think, a wave that breaks over a sand bottom. Most of the time they are fast and hollow not leaving much room for error. Sand is always moving on the seabed, which means it is constantly changing. But a surfer can get lucky and the sand banks can hang around producing fun playful surf before the currents change affecting where the sand rests.


Jordy Smith's choice for best board in 2017's Stab In The Dark. The Radius is designed to be ridden fast and loose in above average to great surf, the Radius has a smooth, medium/high bottom rocker for easy turning and a single concave to add lift and drive. The gentle hip in the outline keeps it lively and sharp, while adding drive. The Radius is as high performance as we go, so not the best choice for beginners, but if you are looking to elevate your surfing up another level this board will get you there.

Reef Break

Recommended Surfboards : Pyzel Ghost

Reef breaks are a favorite for most all surfers. Most of the world’s best waves are reef breaks. At reef breaks the waves break over a reef shelf or a rock bottom. Having a permanent seafloor offers a more consistently shaped wave changing with swell direction, tide, and wind. But with the best waves also come the biggest dangers, reefs are hard, sharp, and very unforgiving when you come in contact after a wipeout.


Originally designed for performance in hollower, more powerful types of waves. The thickness is pushed forward, which helps with getting you into waves easily, and kept the tail and rails thinned out to help hold through barrels and turns at speed. The rocker is med/low through the front half to get you into waves easily and pick up speed quickly. The rear end has plenty of rocker curve for turning control and a snappy responsiveness.


Single concave runs through the entire bottom, with a double concave set inside, which equals speed and lift both on a rail and over flat spots while allowing for quick rail-to-rail transitions. The Ghost's combination of rocker and concave makes for high performance handling through a healthy mix of sensitivity and control.
