2.5-Hour Beginner's Surfing Lesson at Kuta Beach
From US$35.00

It is, of course, possible to learn to surf without an instructor. But, if you’d like to spend more time standing up on your board and less time wiping out, then the help of a professional can save you days. On this Bali surf course, tailor-made for absolute beginners, learn the basics from your ASI-certified instructor in a class of no more than four amid the newbie-friendly waves of Kuta Beach.

What to Expect

After pickup from your Bali guesthouse or hotel, meet your ASI-certified instructor and group of no more than four on Kuta Beach. Learn on a soft-top surfboard designed for beginners, with rubber fins for safety.

Before you even enter the ocean, learn how to carry your surfboard, how to paddle, the motions required to stand up, and the basics of water safety. Once you’re among the waves, your instructor provides guidance on when to catch a wave, corrects your technique, and maybe even offers the occasional push.

After your lesson, feel free to shower before your driver transfers you back to your accommodation.

Great surf school for beginners

If you are looking for a beginner surf school this one is pretty awesome. I meant preface it by stating that I’ve never tried any other one but these guys were great. Most places won’t do 2.5 hours. Most other places are much shorter. It’s...More

Thank you so much for your time and effort to share your experience with us here, nahlalee! Yes you are right; swimming all the way out and wait for waves forever laying down on the board does not happen in Kuta Beach. Very happy to...More
