I loved my time at Padang Padang Surf Camp. It's the place for you if your mail goal is to surf, surf and then surf some more. The coaches are like little balinese power rangers and the community at the camp was also great it's amazing how many different and awesome people are actually united by surfing. I came solo...

I have a Type-A personality that likes to make a detailed agenda and stress over the small things in a vacation. Padang Padang Surf Camp has helped me truly unplug and let the professionals craft an unforgettable surf vacation. Andrew and Ina live on site and run a tight ship. I know the destination the day before and that there... More

I've stayed at Padang Padang Surf Camp half a dozen times and it's hands down the best surfing I've ever done, plus it's an easy relaxing holiday. The surf guides are world class, many sponsored professionals, and manage to find the best waves at the break and guided me onto waves I would never usually paddle for. It totally increased... More

I just got back from my second surfing trip in two months with Padang Padang Surf Camp. I've been surfing for 2 years and had felt very frustrated and stuck with my abilities before my first trip. I made huge improvements in only a week here, more than in the last year! The surf guides/coaches are amazing. I surfed with... More

Don't believe all of the negative reports people. In my opinion they've been posted by individuals who are inherently ignorant, overly-demanding or bitter. The owners, Andrew and Ina including the entire grounds staff and instructor lineup are GOLD. This surf camp has a format and one which works well. Some do not understand that or cannot adapt to it.

I spent 4 days doing surf guiding / lessons with the Indonesian surf guides/instructors. These guys were 10/10. Great hardworking, fun and humble attitude. Top marks for them all round.
