2.5-Hour Beginner's Surfing Lesson at Kuta Beach
US$ 35.00 per adult

It is, of course, possible to learn to surf without an instructor. But, if you’d like to spend more time standing up on your board and less time wiping out, then the help of a professional can save you days. On this Bali surf course, tailor-made for absolute beginners, learn the basics from your ASI-certified instructor in a class of no more than four amid the newbie-friendly waves of Kuta Beach.

What to Expect

After pickup from your Bali guesthouse or hotel, meet your ASI-certified instructor and group of no more than four on Kuta Beach. Learn on a soft-top surfboard designed for beginners, with rubber fins for safety.

Before you even enter the ocean, learn how to carry your surfboard, how to paddle, the motions required to stand up, and the basics of water safety. Once you’re among the waves, your instructor provides guidance on when to catch a wave, corrects your technique, and maybe even offers the occasional push.

After your lesson, feel free to shower before your driver transfers you back to your accommodation.

Good for beginners

They are patient in explaining what to take note for a beginner. Despite being in group class, the trainer did try their best to spend equal attention on each person. I had a lot of fun!

First time surfing, did the lesson with Black and it was awesome. Great advice, had me standing up on the board within the first half an hour! Recommend this place for lessons and rental

First surf lesson

I had my first surf lesson and it was great! My teacher was very friendly and I learned a lot. Unfortunately I had to leave Bali the next day. I really recomend this surf school!

Guru Black is the best!

Kudos to Guru Black. What a great experience!! Thank you Guru Black for the surfing lesson and for philosophising on the metaphysics of waves.

why can't they provide pickup at villas ?

joined the 2.5 hours beginner lesson, it was good, weather was great. got the first coach but wasn't the best, then a guy named Made helped and he's much of a better coach. lesson was fun, photos are great (but super pricey). but what's funny...More
