What you'll do

Come try your hand at surfing in Bali’s friendliest beginner waves! I promise you lots of fun and you will catch your first wave! Free photos/video of your surf experience is included!

Our lesson begins with some stretching and warmup to get the body going, followed by a theory session to give you basic surf knowledge and skills to give you confidence on the wave, such as positioning on the board, paddling and how to stand up on the board. We will also include surfing safety and rules.

Then it’s surf’s up, and we’ll go into the water to catch some waves! I will show you the best location to catch easy beginner waves, and together we will surf for about 1 hour under guidance followed by a break on the beach and then another 45 mins of surfing.

The entire session will last about 2.5 hours.

If you are hungry after surf, I can show you the secret beach ‘Warung’, where you can try Legian’s best ‘Nasi Goreng’ or Indonesian Fried Rice. The beachside ‘Warungs’ are signless makeshift cafes located on the beach. You can also hang out with us to catch the sunset if you have nothing to do after surfing, and just want to chill.

Where you'll be

KUTA Beach is the best beginner surf spot in Bali. It is a beach break with a gentle shallow beach, nice waves that are not too big and no rocks.

Our warm-up and theory lesson is right on the beach under the shade of trees in front of straight of gate Pullman hotel . I will then take you to the best beach location to catch beginner waves.

I can pick you up from your hotel by scooter if you are staying in the Kuta/Legian/Seminyak area.

처음 오는 발리이고 전부 비슷해보여서 고민했는데 후기가 좋아서 찾아갔어요 12살 어린이 3명 어른 2명 갔는데 눈높이에 맞춰서 그룹을 나눠서 수업받았어요 서핑도 나눠서 어린이들은 더 안전한곳에서 즐겼구요 너무 힘들어서 그만 탄다니까 시간이 남았다고 호랑이 선생님 흉내를 ㅋㅋ 다시 환희 웃으며 수고했다고 하네요 어린이들 수업해준 친구는 예전 여자친구가 부산 사람이라고 간단한 한국말도 하드라구요 알차고 좋았습니다 ^^

처음 서핑을 배우는데, 빠르게 배울 수 있도록 가르쳐주었어요. 서핑은 강사가 누구냐에 따라 다른 것 같은데, 맨슨은 처음배우는 사람한테 가장 적합한 사람인 것 같습니다. 가격대비 교육시간도 길고 정말 좋은 추억이었습니다. 사진도 따로 찍어주고 나중에 보내주었는데, 굉장히 잘 찍어주어서 만족했습니다. 그리고 제가 30분가량을 늦었는데도 불구하고 불편함은 내색하지 않고 잘 진행해주었어요. 하지만 저 때문에 다른 수강생하고 기다렸다는 말을 들어 살짝 창피하고 죄송했습니다. 처음 서핑타시는분들! 어느 강사분을 선택할지 고민한다면 즐겁게 잘 가르쳐주는 맨슨 추천드립니다.

The best lesson for a surf beginner!! First of all, the host, Mansen, cares about safety first and instructs clearly and briefly. He speaks English fluently so easy to understand the lesson and can be a friend as well. With his professional and experienced lesson, I could enjoy all the time and almost overcome the fear of water sports. Highly recommend anyone who is interested in surf lesson.

The experience was beyond our expectations. He was very professional and thoughtful. He always noticed how we can improve and gave us tips after each wave. I was about to quit 2 times but he motivated me and explained why I keep falling so I finally manage to catch a wave within 60 minutes from the start of the class. We're definitely gonna come back for another class and I highly recommend trying this experience while you're in Bali.
