For those who have always wanted to try surfing, Bali has very consistent surf and weather. The surf instructors will choose the best location according to your ability. The surf lesson begins on the beach, with the instructor advising on how to handle the board, paddle out, catch waves and stand up. All our instructors have surfed Bali since they were children and are qualified to Australian surfing instructor standards. They are experts on choosing the best time and location to surf.
No wetsuit is required as the water temperature is warm year round. You can bring your own surfboard or we will provide an appropriate sized board from the surf school. We cater for all standards of surfer: beginners who have never surfed before, intermediate who want to progress to the next level and advanced who want to be expert surfers.
Surf School Bali
Padang Padang surf camp opened the first surf school on the bukit. Most surfing lessons are at Dreamland or Padang Padang beach which are beautiful locations to spend the day - white sand and clear blue sea. Other locations nearby such as Uluwatu and Balangan will be chosen depending on your ability and the conditions on the day. Our objective is to find the best surfing conditions so you have the maximum enjoyment riding the bali surf.
If you have never surfed before, then the first surfing lesson will include instruction on the basic theory of surfing. Our internationally qualified surfing instructors will teach you the correct technique to jump up on the board, how to select waves, how to paddle and catch waves, and how to ride the waves. As your surfing progresses the instructors will advise you how to turn the board, accelerate and proper techniques to progress to the next level of surfing. The instruction will be addressed to your specific ability irrespective of whether you are a complete beginner, intermediate or advanced.
You can arrange to have surfing lessons as part of a small group or have private surf lessons. The maximum group size per instructor is only 3 people but to maximise the potential for improvement you can request one on one tuition by our expert surf intructors. Depending on your age and general level of fitness, we recommend you spend at least 2 hours surfing every day of your vacation, to maximise the potential for improvement.
We specialise in teaching complete beginners who have never surfed before and have the 10 most patient and experienced surf instructors. Bali is the perfect location to learn to surf due to the high quality and consistency of the waves and also the water temperature which is perfect year round.
