07 Sep SURF SCHOOL
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!
HOW MANY LESSONS SHOULD I GET?
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.
WHAT IS SURF TRIP?
We offer to intermediate levels surfers an exciting opportunity to go on a surf trip to some of Bali’s most breathtaking spots. It is a good chance to find the waves that suit your level and explore the island. Group surf trips are only available for adult students (at least 16 years old).
WHY IS THERE NO FIXED SCHEDULE FOR THE LESSONS TO START AT THE SAME TIME?
Every surf spot has different seafloor structure with depth variations. The lesson start time depends on the tidal water level, wind and swell in the ocean. We schedule our lessons 1-2 days ahead, considering the best waves timeline for our class.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SURFING ON THE FOAM AND SURFING ON THE LINE-UP?
Surfing the foam (the white waves) is the beginner level, learning basics of the basics, like standing up on the board, et. The line-up lessons are given to those who already know the basic skills and are able to manage the surf board. The students paddle a little bit further, towards the line up, right before the break, where we teach them to catch the real green waves.
WHAT CLOTHES DO I NEED FOR SURFING?
Men surf in board shorts, that are created for surfing – it’s getting dry quickly and you feel free during all the surfing. Ladies have many options – bikini, shorts or leggings.

Sure you can. Just make sure you have a spare couple!
