I have a trip planned to Bali for four days in late January with my family. During our stay I would really like to take some surfing lessons possibly with my two sons aged 11 and 8. I have heard the beaches on the Western side are best for beginners learning to surf, however I have also heard they can become quite dirty during the wet season. I was wondering if it would be possible for us to learn somewhere else during our stay or would it still be OK to learn at Kuta at that time. None of us have surfed before but are very keen to try, just a little concerned about safety and health. We will likely be staying in Sanur. Have others taken beginner lessons in January? All thoughts and responses appreciated.
