“Very good surf school”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

The trainer is very good and punctual for pick up. Knowledgeable about waves and bring us to good spots to surf. He is very adaptable to our learning capabilities and does not hesitate to teach us new stuff when we pick up faster. Overall a good 2hr lesson. Wished we could've surf more. 400k inr is well worth the lesson. The trainer does not speak very good English, just sufficient so pls be understanding. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves

“Best in the business”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Desudebali surf is prefect for novice surfers. There is only one instructor and his is really the best in the business. All the basic fundamentals will be taught prior to the surf itself. Given his years of experience in surfing, whatever he taught is really useful and my friends and i got it right after the first try! Constantly smiling and very patient, he teaches us step by step along the way and correct us when we made any mistakes. He even offered to help us take pictures using our GoPro and the images taken were amazing. He is a really friendly and experienced surfer who is really keen on wanting us to stand up during the surf and not wasting our money. I feel it is really a value for money if you want to learn to surf. He also always emphasize "safety first, fun second" which speaks a lot on safety. When you learn how to surf with him, you are sure to be in safe hands! Thank you so much Desudebali surf for teaching my friends and I how to surf! WORLD CLASS SERVICE!

“Let's go surfing now, everybody's learning how!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

A fantastic introduction to surfing. Desu was easy to contact and picked us up from our hotel punctually. He clearly knows his beaches and chose an area he knew would be good for us as beginners. Throughout the lesson he moved us up and down beach according to where the waves were best for our level. He gave us good, clear instructions on the beach and the appropriate level of support in the water. Within 20 minutes of entering the sea we were both standing on the boards. There were just the two of us, so effectively it was a private lesson, which was great. At 400k rupiah per person it was well worth it. All in all it was really fun and we both felt we were in safe hands.

“Great exposure to Surfing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

I took a 2-hour lesson with Desu on Monday 12 May 2014. It was super duper fun and entertaining and thrilling and was my great-first-time-surfing!! :)) Desu and his friend (Maden?) were very patient and professional in teaching me how to keep balance and surf the small waves (well yeah, i wish i could have had the whole 3 days in Bali just to learn surfing). I did actually search all over for an intro class in Bali, and felt very lucky to have found them. Highly recommended!! Thank you, Desu! I will come again when I have another chance. ;)
