Desu is a true Bali surfer! Professional, full of patience and encouraging. He teaches us to embrace the ocean and just go with the waves to have fun. If you are lucky, you might even meet Desu' fellow surfing friend Boni, who was very helpful and a bloody firecracker! Definitely a must if you are thinking about giving surfing a... More

This is a long overdue review for 12/2015. Desu is a great instructor who has a genuine passion for teaching surfing and like all great teachers takes the time to plan a thoughtful individualized lesson. He brought us to an amazing local beach, which had perfect waves for beginners/intermediates and timed the currents perfectly. He really takes the time to... More

We were really happy to have Desu as our teacher for 5 days. He picked us up at our villa and brought us to different beaches. We had much fun, I highly recommend him.

We booked a week with Desu and his team in Bali. He was excellent in so many ways both in and beyond the surf. A consummate professional at what he does and an extraordinarily nice guy. I felt like my family was in great hands at all times, and yes we learned how to surf. I even left my wallet... More

That was our first time surfing, and we couldn't wish for a better instructor than Desu. We took a semi-private lesson (he was instructor for 2 people - me and my boyfriend), and both of us got plenty of attention and recommendations. He takes you to different beaches each day and is very patient and friendly. If you are going... More
