Bali would not be the world class destination it is today if it wasn't for surfing. In the 1960s, surfers first found their way to Kuta’s long arch of sand and decided to create a hub in what they considered to be paradise on earth. The excellent breaks and perfect sands backdropped by the island’s mystical atmosphere became the stuff of legend among the surf community, later on breaking into mainstream tourism. Nowadays Kuta, Legian, and Seminyak continue to draw surfers from all over the world, from amateurs to competitive riders.

Experience the legendary waves for yourself with this half-day session with a professional surf school established for its lessons from beginner to advanced. There’s always something new to pick up, and to ensure targeted but social learning, there will be one experienced guide for every 2-3 students. Depending on the wave and weather conditions, you will be taken to different spots around Bali, such as Seminyak, Serangan, Canggu and Jimbaran… away from the over-touristy areas, in a fun and relaxed environment.

Before paddling out, the instructor will determine your level of surfing, explain how to use the board, and talk about safety and local conditions. For intermediate surfers, the trainer will skip to paddling techniques and tricks (eg. carving, turning, etc.)

The operator will confirm the exact time and location closer to the day depending on weather and wave conditions.

Note: Pickup/ Drop off from Seminyak and Kuta it's included in the price listed. Please inform the name of your hotel during the checkout process.

    Decided last minute I wanted to have a surfing experience in my last day in Bali. I read a couple of reviews until I got here. The customer service helped me to get a booking for the same day, afternoon. They got back within 5 minutes, replied to all my concerns and made me feel confident about trying surfing for the very first time. I got a great instructor, Jimmy, who help me with his great patience and funny character to get off the fear of catching the waves. 15-20 minutes of the theory was enough for me to remember all the steps to follow. Very enjoyable lesson!

    Great experience with a very experienced surf instructor. After a few tries he actually helped me to make it happen, I could stand up and ride my first wave in Seminyak. It's impossible to get bored in this class, my instructor makes the session very funny to remove the scare of catching up the waves. He was very precise to help me to adjust little things in my posture that changed completely the result. The whole team was very friendly. After the classes, we drank a couple of beers. Thank you for the lessons and the great time. Regards from the cold Vienna,

    First comment : We had a great time learning how to surf!! The instructor really cares about you learning something from your lesson, about the sport itself and the theory of the waves. It really help you to get started without loosing the enthusiasm. Very professional. Second Comment: hard to say this in South East Asia, but we didn't feel like the school nor the instructors were only after our money, they were really focus on helping us learn and enjoy the day. We'll book it again in our next trip to Bali!

    We were a group of 5 people from Germany and we took this 2,5 hours/3 days surf school lessons. Two of us were first timers. Instructors were very precise, patient and the waves from Seminyak suitable for beginners. We got to learn all the basics about surfing, feedback on how to improve and feel confident to note feare the waves. There is a good spirit and happy atmosphere in this surf school. We enjoyed a lot of our afternoon session

    Very good lesson. This was my third try to learn surf in Bali and only this time I could manage to stand up the surfboard. The instructors are very patient and very knowledgeable on how to get best of their students. We were just me and another girl from Australia. The lessons were very personalised and we both had a great time learning together. After the class, we went all together with our instructor to have some beers to celebrate! Awesome experience and the price is very cheap!

    Great lesson, great school! Was my first time trying to learn Surf. I have to admit is quite hard at the beginning but first-time beginners I can assure you will stand up at the end of the course. The feeling of riding a surfboard is fascinating. You can't say you've been in Bali without trying this.

    Learning how to surf has always been my dream, and when I found out that I can have that opportunity I signed up immediately. I was with other two people during my trip, and we really had no idea what we were doing. But after a while, we were able to stand on the board, albeit for a couple of seconds, and felt like champions.
