Situated in the western end of Lesser Sunda Islands in Indonesia, Bali is a well known tropical paradise that boasts amazing white sandy beaches, surrounded by coral reefs and huge coconut trees. Being among the best surfing destinations with countless waves and incredible surfing spots, Bali is definitely the best location for a surf film festival.

Ombak Bali International Surf Film Festival, presents the first showcase of international independent documentaries and films around the surfing culture, celebrating its 7th edition in La Plancha, Bali right on Seminyak beach. The big screen will be placed on the sand and visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy for three starry nights, lots of fascinating surfing action from several spots around the world, epic adventures and personal crusades.
