What you'll do

If you've always wanted to try surfing but never have, there is perhaps no better setting than all famous beaches like Uluwatu, Padang Padang, Dreamland and Balangan. This popular 2-hour beginners surf lesson will give you an authentic taste of the world of surfing, important safety information about waves and the beach, and bragging rights about having conquered this cool and amazing sport!

We teach everything you will need to know! Basic theories like introducing surfing equipments, paddling, popping up, standing up, dropping into waves and riding across them. Plus, learning about surf etiquette, ocean safety and beach awareness will ensure you leave us confident and ready to surf! You will also be taught how to safely go in and out and catch your first wave. This personalized attention is the best way to build your surf knowledge and confidence while cultivating your surf technique.

You may schedule surf lesson times from 6:00am to 6:00pm (Sunrise To Sunset) from Monday to Saturday. Sunday only available from 6:00am to 8:00am and 12:00pm to 6:00pm. NOTE: you will be given the update of tide chart as some surf spots are good and safe at high tide and other spots are supposedly good at low tide.

P/S: If you prefer to have a private lesson, PLEASE BOOK THE ENTIRE GROUP. During rainy season, there is always big possibility that we do surf lessons and guiding in Nusa Dua area.
Other things to note
Due to uncertain weather in rainy season, please send me inquires before booking. I will give the forecast update and notify you of the best location for the conditions on the day. You may schedule surf lesson times from 6:00am to 6:00pm (Sunrise To Sunset) from Monday to Sunday.

My name is Bintang. Yeah, just like the beer!

I am originally from a small town Blora, in the north east of Central Java. I've worked as a surf instructor and guide in Bali since 2016 and I've based in Uluwatu area since 2017 so that I know the local surf spots in the neighbourhood inside out (Uluwatu, Padang-Padang, Bingin, Dreamland, Balangan, Nyang Nyang, Green Bowl, Geger and Nusa Dua area).

I am a person who is passionate about social work and dream for the world to become a better place. I am pro-outdoors and spend a good deal of time in the ocean as a conscious free spirit surfer. I want to spread the surf culture to as many people on the planet because I believe that it's more than just a sport, it's a lifestyle that connects us with nature and make us better human beings.

Let's surf with me and let the sea set you free!

Bintang is very friendly and considerate! He considers his students' ability and does his best to keep em from being exhausted. Most important, he made us feel safe even though this was our first time surfing. He also complimented us a lot and that really encouraged us to do better!

Bintang was a great instructor! He prepared everything for us total newbies, walked us through the basics on shore, and continued guiding us when out on the water. He adjusts the time and location of the lessons based on the ocean conditions and your experience level, so you know he's doing his best to give everybody the best experience. He's so patient, and I would recommend him for anybody looking to get surfing lessons.

Bintang was super helpful in teaching the basics and helping us when we were out in the water. It was our first time surfing, and we were both able to get up with his coaching. He's able to give lessons at different experience levels. Would definitely recommend Bintang to anyone looking for a surfing instructor.

Great experience! Bintang had a great insight of how the sea is acting and adjust his class on it. He helps you to get the first waves, is very patient. And because he only takes a maximum of 3 persons, you get enough opportunities to try to catch some waves! After the 2 hours of paddling and surfing you are done, (read: tired as F***) haha.
