IF I AM BEGINNER, WHY DO SO NEED TO GO TO KUTA IF I CAN TAKE THE SURF LESSONS CLOSER TO WHERE I STAY (CANGGU/SANUR/NUSA DUA)?

Kuta is known to be the number one beginners spot for a reason. Here you can find the best waves and a sandy bottom, which makes it more safe to make first steps in surfing. If you arrange your first few classes in the spots with bigger waves, that will only slow down your progress. Learn those basic skills first, and then you can try some other spots!

On average people need min. 5 classes to start surfing on their own. That’s why it is more beneficial to buy a basic or a standard course package. Please note, that the speed of learning is individual.
