What Our Students Are Saying

I had a great experience at Padang Padang Surf Camp. We took semi-private lessons with Randy, who was a great coach. He was very knowledgeable about every break we went to, where was the best place to paddle out, positioning and tips on how to improve my surfing. Randy I’ll buy you a Bintang (or two) next time! Would definitely go back again.

Henry Z. April 2023

We booked the surf lessons / guiding for my wife and me. We’re both more or less beginners and needed separate sessions to take turns with our baby. The scheduling was very easy and the guides Richie and Samy were both very pleasant, knowledgeable and capable. Great breakfast, too…

The best thing about this place is undoubtedly the surf lessons. I could not fault any of the instructors on their enthusiasm, knowledge and care for their students. I was a little nervous at points in the water but felt completely safe with all of them. My surfing has progressed so much over the two weeks I spent there and I cannot thank them enough.
