If you've been to Bali, you've likely heard whispers about this mechanical wonder on the road to Uluwatu. It's known as one of the easiest barrels on the Bukit due to it's perfect shape, smooth pace, and easy exit. Apart from picking off waves on the inside, theres a single takeoff point, meaning the crowd is a factor.
Just a short detour from the main road, Bingin sits at the final section of reef just after Padang and Impossibles. In the summer months, it's is almost always head high and perfect, and wind is rarely an issue. This barrel machine works on all tides, but you're bound to get the most drained as it drops out. Just be sure to bring some spare fins because the reef is unavoidable.
Right in front of the wave sits a group of Warungs to grab some food and rest in between sessions. So it's not uncommon to fit in three to four sessions in day if you're up for it.
For months, waves in Bali went unridden due to the COVID-19 lockdown. And surfers were forced to endure the the painful beauty of perfect, empty barrels. Now with surfing back in Bali, this edit from "Surfers Of Bali" will show you why Bingin could be be one of the easiest barrels in the world.
