The daily schedule
The evening before, our guides check the swell, tide, wind, think about the crowd, and then they decide who goes to which spot the following day. Of course they consider the surfing level of the group to make sure everyone scores a maximum of good waves, is as safe as stoked!
The best way to get started is in a safe and easy environment with three classes in surf school. There (in Legian) the beach is most suitable and the sand bottom is shallow enough to stand. A good number of surf instructors take care of you and make sure you get started the best way, teaching you the right technique and correcting you when it is necessary. After that, so from your class 4 onwards, you will be joining one of our guides and will enjoy your daily mission to score good surf and have heaps of fun!
For intermediate surfers, Bali has a great variety of waves that cater all needs, levels and desires. Reefbreaks, beachbreaks, semibeachbreaks, long pointbreaks, it is all within a one hour drive. Your surfing level will advance in no time, as long as you do what your coach tells you. Do the bottom torn where it is supposed to be done and then head up to the lip and see your own spray fly as you carve your top turn! We will bring you to waves that you might never have thought of riding, but with the right support everything is possible.
Let’s get barrelled! Some of the best waves in the world are right at your doorstep. Indo perfection, almost every day. In dry season the lefts are on, and in wet season there are so many righthanders on the eastcoast, you can’t believe it. Long barrels, punchy sections, big open face walls, it’s great. Knowing how to avoid the crowd is important, and this is why you are with us.
Our quiver is well equipped for a variety of conditions and surf levels: fishes, single fins, shortboards from 6’0″ to 7’0″, funshapes and minimalibus from 7’0″ to 8’3″, and our beginners are in good hands with longboards from 9’3″ to 10’0″. There is the right board for all levels and conditions. Board hire costs EUR 8,- per day or EUR 40,- per week. If you don’t mind bringing your own board on the plane, please do it and initiate it into the beautiful waters of the Indian Ocean! Don’t forget that you can buy just about anything here on Bali for a really good price, especially what you need for surfing!
