What Our Intermediates Are Saying

The surf guides for us intermediates were unreal, knew exactly where and when would be good, and they were very hands on in giving you pointers on technique and wave selection that is something you would never get trying to figure out the breaks in Bali on your own

Tom, New Zealand, 2022

This place is excellent. We loved every minute! We arrived as a couple at different levels of surfing, myself being intermediate and my girlfriend total beginner. We received great levels of support and local knowledge which allowed me to regularly catch twice the amount of waves as most of the crowds at particular spots and my girlfriend managed to surf breaks safely and well advised.

Craig, Australia, 2021

I was blown away by the quality of the experience at this surf camp! There were so many factors that combined to make it a holiday par excellence. I was a low-intermediate surfer at the start of this trip, but left with great skills and confidence.
