After quite a serious research, what I usually do when I want to choose school, guide, travel agency etc., I decided to go for Odysseys. And probably it is the best choice anybody can make :) Location is great, just accros the street from the Kuta Beach. I took 3 days begginers group package. It was supposed to be 1... More

Odysseys Surf School is a surfing school located at the Mercure Hotel Arcade just in front of Kuta beach, which is famous for its white sandy bottom, breaking waves and waist deep water. It doesn’t matter how good/bad you can surf or how young/old you are! Odysseys offers lessons for everybody! And the good thing is that the instructors speak... More

I recently took a lesson with Odyssey. I opted for a private lesson. I would highly recommend this surf school! Not only was I given clear instructions on land before getting in the water, once in the water, I was given plenty of useful tips and help. The instructor also helped me get into the waves so I had a... More

I went to the surf school alone for my first surf lesson. I preferred a group lesson over an individual lesson. I was in a small group with two instructors. I must say I didn't seem to have much talent for it, however the instructors kept a positive attitude, kept giving me useful instructions, and in the end I manage... More

Odysseys is a great surf school due to its prime location at Kuta Beach. When I arrived for my first surf lesson at Odysseys I checked in around 13.45 since my surf lessons started at 14.00. I participated in a surf group and everything was clear from the beginning due to the instructions of the staff. We got superb tips... More

Recommended by my sister whose friend took his surfing classes here. Booked 2 semi private classes (both first timers) for my 9 year old daughter and 13 year old son, on Thursday 19/02 1pm and Friday 20/02 7am (unfortunately the weather was bad). My children enjoyed the classes, my son managed to stand up after the first class, as for... More

My husband and I have never surfed before and learned to surf through Odysseys Surf School in just one lesson! We chose to do the private lesson for just the two of us because it was only a few dollars more and it was well worth it. Our instructor was so friendly and helpful. He really knew what he was...

Don't expect to surf like a pro after two hours, but overall, the service is unsurpassed, with equipment and odyssey swim wear provided for the session. It does provide water, and showers after the session. They could do better with staggering their classes, as it was pretty crowded out in the water, with so many novices. Video and photos of...
