- September 2018 – 7 Nights / 8 Days
- $1750 NZD – All inclusive: Accommodation, 3 meals, daily surf coaching, surfboard hire and transfers ex Bali
- Simply fly to Bali – We’ll depart as a group to Java early on day 1
The surf in Indonesia is well-known for it’s consistency, quality and huge variety of surf spots. It’s Disneyland. You are pretty much guaranteed good waves every single day. But, Indonesia is not all shallow coral reefs and challenging waves. There are plenty of world class beginner spots too. This trip will head to a beautiful location with sand bottom breaks ideal for beginners and novices wanting to progress fast.
We’ll be staying right on the beachfront in a lush tropical garden complete with swimming pool, fast wifi and air-conditioned rooms. Our daily routine will involve 2 surf coaching sessions plus theory lessons and video review back at the camp. All your meals are taken care of so you can relax and focus on improving.
This is the perfect location to get comfortable surfing out the back and get better at riding ‘green waves’. I’ll often paddle out with you to help you build wave knowledge and confidence, but will also be filming you so that you can quickly improve your technique.
Day 1: We will be picked up early from Bali and travel north to meet our ferry to Java. We’ll have the chance to stop for a surf at a mellow wave on the way. Once on Java we’ll have another couple of hours drive to the surf camp. (It’s a long journey but the best places always take some getting to)
Day 2 – 6: We’ll have 5 full days of 2 surfs per day. There are some other adventures in the area too; volcano tours, coffee plantations, boat trips, rafting. We can do some of these if you’re keen.
Day 7: We head back to Bali early, again stopping to surf along the way. Check in to our accommodation and go out for a group dinner.
Day 8: Our last day so we’ll start with an early surf then check out the famous spots of the Bukit peninsula such as Uluwatu.
What level is the Surf Camp for?
Level 2, 3 and lower level 4 surfers. You can check your level here. If you’ve done my beginner surf course you’ll find this surf trip flows on perfectly from that. If you’re more experienced we will work at cleaning up your technique and learning new moves by video analysis of your sessions.
The options include private/double rooms, triple share and 6 bed dorms. The price will vary slightly depending on what you go for so let me know your preferred option. All rooms have aircon. The grounds are amazing and we are right in front of the surf break.

For some of you this might be your first surf trip. I’ve got the surfboards sorted if you need, but you can bring your own if you like. Here are a few tips on what to arrange and what to bring.
- Travel Insurance is a must have for everyone on this trip.
- Surfing everyday in the tropics can lead to wear and tear on your body. Bring a quality wetsuit vest which will provide protection for your ribs and stomach while paddling, and protection from the sun. Even though it’s the tropics, morning sessions can sometimes have a chilly breeze.
- Reef boots from a surf shop are a good idea. We’ll be surfing sand bottom breaks mostly but may visit a mellow reef break along the way, and when exploring they come in handy. Make sure they are a snug fit.
- Mosquito repellant and light long sleeve tops/long pants may come in handy in the evenings.
- Pack light – you can buy almost anything in Bali.
If you want to join the camp please get in touch and tell me your accommodation preference (private room or shared room). I can then give you an exact price. To secure rooms at the camp, a deposit will be needed.
