Yes, we require that you make a reservation in advance due to limited space. We offer a semi- private surf lesson including a maximum of 2 guests with 1 coach. There are usually no more than 6 people per surf session.
Yes, our classes are suitable for beginners and more advanced levels. Because we do semi-private lessons, our coach can pay close attention to properly assist every guest by helping and supporting them for better results and quicker progress.
We also provide practical training on the campsite for beginner levels 1 and 2 so guests can understand surfing techniques and theory better. We discuss the most important points to help you excel in surfing. (The theory class is included in your lesson package).
If you can already surf by yourself, have your board with you and just need transportation we would recommend to hire a driver who will take you to the place you want to visit. If you don’t know where to go and when, you can join our Surf Lesson program and the price will be the same.
No, we choose surf spots according to guests level and swell condition. It can be any location around Bali. Our coach will make a decision where and when to go, one day in advance according to the swell, tide, and weather conditions. You can find out more about our surf locations here: http://www.indasurf.com/blog/surf-trip/
Yes, if your level is good enough to surf at an advanced surf spot such as Uluwatu or any other popular location around Bali and if there is a wave, our coach will make a decision after he reviews your skill level. Safety is our priority and if you’re not experienced enough we will not risk your safety.
No, lesson times depend on the tide, swell and the spot we will be visiting. Beginner level 2, intermediate and advanced level sessions are usually in the morning (anytime between 6:30 AM to 11 AM) as conditions are better for practicing on unbroken "green waves”. Beginner Level 1 session is usually in the afternoon (anytime from 11 AM till 5 PM). We will inform you about your lesson time a few days in advance. Please pay attention as lesson times can be changed according to the weather conditions.
More about tides you can find here: http://www.indasurf.com/blog/things-to-know/21/guide-to-tides
We have a wide range from Soft Top boards for beginners to shortboards for advanced surfers.
Our coach will help you to choose the proper board. You can also change your board during your stay depending on your progress. More about surfboards can be found here: http://www.indasurf.com/blog/things-to-know/32/guide-to-surfboards
If you book Surf & Stay package and stay at the camp, a surfboard can be used all day long without any additional charge.
If you book Surf Lesson package surfboard can be used only during the lesson and can't be rented for extra hours.
There is only one session per day included in the Surf Lesson and Surf and Stay packages. However you can add another session but we recommend you add it after your arrival. Conditions are not always good enough to have 2 sessions per day for different levels. There is also a chance you will be too tired or make other plans to explore Canggu. With that said, rather than potentially wasting money, please discuss with your coach when is a suitable time to take 2 sessions per day.
No, we have a strict cancellation policy due to limited space.

Yes, we can do airport pick-up anytime. Please provide us with your flight details (flight # and arriving time) in advance.

If you stay in Batu Belig, Umalas or Tanah Lot area, pick up is possible depending on the schedule but an additional charge will be applied. Please contact us for more details.

Yes, it’s still possible to stay in the camp. Please contact us for a price quotation.
Your lesson will start on the day after arrival and your last lesson will be on your day of departure. The amount of time you stay is equal to the amount of lessons you have. For example if you stay 7 nights there will be 7 lessons.
If you depart early and can’t take your last lesson please let us know in advance. There are a few options available.
We don’t have any minimum reservation requirements so you can book as many days as you want. It can even be 1 night/ 1 lesson.
Surfing is not that easy as it looks. Unfortunately, we can’t give any guarantee – it all depends on how fast your progression is on the day. We do as much as possible to get you on a board quickly but if it’s your first time, we recommend to take 3-7 lessons so you will learn basic theory and technique, catch your first white water wave and move from soft top board to longboard and unbroken “green waves” after a few lessons. If you can already take off and ride green waves we will elevate you to the intermediate lesson where you will surf different locations. Our coaches will give useful tips during your lessons with video analysing to improve your weak spots.
During your lessons we record videos and your coach will go through them with you after your session. As most people are visual learners, video analysis is a good method to see your mistakes and understand better what you have to work on. During this session our coach will explain to you what you’re doing wrong and give you some tips on how to improve your riding
We do video analysing every other session. For example: If you book 3 lessons there will be 2 video analyzing sessions. If you book only one lesson, please ask us to confirm whether we offer video analyzing on this day or not. Please note; video shooting can be cancelled anytime due to weather conditions.
It depends on your injury whether surfing is possible and sometimes exercise can even help strengthen you to have a better recovery. However, you should consult with your doctor first to be sure this kind of activity is suitable. During a surf session, your back, shoulders and arms will work hard while paddling and during take off so you have to be prepared for almost 2 hours of non-stop work out. If you have any health issues please inform us in advance so our guide will be more prepared and can provide additional help in the water.
Please consider your injury prior to surfing as any cancellation due to health reasons still follows our basic cancellation policy http://www.indasurf.com/booking/terms-and-conditions
Yes, our lessons are suitable for children from 6 years old and above. However, for children below 14 years old, we require one guardian to attend the class. Parents can stay on the beach during the lesson and there will be no additional charge for them. All children who would like to join the lesson should know how to swim and be confident in the water.
Prices for children are the same as our standard package 45 USD. Typically, we provide a 1:1 session for children.
If your child has never tried surfing before we recommend to book 1 lesson first and after the session has finished, we can properly assess if he/she should continue or not.
