Group was a good size with about 6-8 people with two surf instructors which makes it conducive for learning.

The lesson was exactly as I expected. A few minutes with the board on the beach learning the basics, a few times falling down on small waves, and then standing up on a wave. Then another hour and a half or so of surfing / falling down / getting hit by waves. Instructor (Jimi) was good, it was nice to... More

The school is very professional and provides you with everything you need: hotel pick up/drop off, locker, rash guard, shorts, board, towel, drinking water, photos/videos for purchase). Good introduction with some practice on the sand before entering the water. Would recommend for first time surfers!

Prepare yourself to be physically exhausted. From the start you learn the basics on how to get onto the board before entering the water. Half the battle is walking through the water whilst getting hit by the waves. Once you've got to that point, the next challenge is standing on the board. Make sure you have energy left in you...

It was my virgin experience taking a surf class and had no idea what to expect! My class was lead by Made (pronounced Muddy), a young chap that was more than willing to share all his surfing knowledge to us. His attention to detail constantly kept us in check and you will hear him correcting every student as and when... More

It was a great experience of surfing in Bali with a great instructor Made. He told a lot about waves and special tricks and helped me to finally start feeling the board. Made treated me not like a tourist, but like a brother surfer - thanks a lot!!
