Bali has been renowned as a wonderful surf destination for a long long time. In fact, it has become one of the surf Meccas to which wave riders from all levels do some kind of holy pilgrimage. However, not so many people know that Bali is also home to a dynamic skate scene. There are many skateparks in Bali where the skaters can learn new tricks, such as:



Amplitude has a pump track and bowl which is arguably one of the most enormous in Indonesia. It caters every level of skateboarders, from those who are just beginning to get used to the movement of the trucks to those who have been able to do tricks like Tony Hawk. However, besides skates, Amplitude also welcomes kickboards and bikes.

The entrance fee is only IDR80,000 for a non-member and IDR60,000 for the registered member. Amplitude also rent equipment and run skateboarding and biking school. It can be found on Jalan Raya Br. Semer, Gg. Nata, Kerobokan.

Since launched a couple of years ago, Pretty Poison has grown into one of the most authentic underground skate parks in Bali—and perhaps in Indonesia. The most interesting thing about this place is that it combines live music, tattoo, and skateboarding. But, of course, you shouldn’t have them all at once.

Located on Jalan Subak Canggu, North Kuta, this skate park is open every day from 4 pm to midnight. Finding Pretty Poison is a piece of cake because you won’t miss the pool style bowl dug right in the middle of it.

Started as a skate shop, Motion has evolved into one of the most important local skateboard brands in Bali. But it didn’t stop there. A couple of years ago, Motion rent a vacant land on Jalan Kafe Legong No. 420, Sunset Road, Kuta, and built a skate park which eventually becomes one of the most important venues of Bali’s skateboarding scene.
This indoor skate park is where young, local skateboarders break their legs—literally—and learn how to dance on their trucks, as it is equipped with complete obstacles from the flat rail, funbox and pyramid, quarterpipes, etc. To deal with the obstacles, you only have to pay for IDR30,000.

Beside Motion, there’s another indoor skatepark around Kuta: Donkey Skatepark. Once a warehouse, the building of Donkey Skatepark is spacious. No wonder it can contain many obstacles which are ready to help you upgrade your skateboarding skills. And no worries; no one has ever spotted a donkey here.
To ride on the concrete floor of Donkey Skatepark, you only have to pay IDR30,000. If you are a total beginner, you can learn how to skate for IDR250,000/hour. It is situated on Jalan Sunset Road No. 88A, Kuta.




As a small kidney-shaped bowl situated right beside a cozy red brick wall of Konkrete Store Bar & Cafe, it is perhaps the most instagrammable skatepark in Bali. Although it looks deserted during the day when the night has come Konkrete is usually packed with skateboarders as well as the crowds who want to see the skateboarders in action.
Konkreta Skatepark perches on Jalan Pantai Berawa No. 13 Tibuteneng, Kuta Utara. It is open daily from 4 pm to 1 am.

If you happen to be dwelling in Sanur, you don’t have to go all the way to Kuta or Canggu to find a skatepark. You can go to ESS, 10 minutes away from Sanur east coast beaches, and roll on its bowl.

ESS’s skatepark is open every day from 9 am to 9 pm. The entrance fee is only IDR25,000 (a free drink included) except for Fridays, which is free. If you are curious, just make your way to ESS on Jalan Sedap Malam, Gg. Kwangen No. 13, Sanur.

Deus Ex Machina Temple Of Enthusiasm


Renowned as a place for party goers, surfers, and custom bikers, no one would guess that Deus Ex Machina has a skateboarding facility. There is a four feet concrete mini-ramp in the corner of the Temple of Enthusiasm where skaters can sway back and forth and do some tricks.
If you are curious to roll on the ramp, you can go to Jalan Pantai Batu Mejan No. 8, Canggu. Deus Ex Machina is open daily from 7 pm to midnight.
So are you ready to do some ollie?
