“Great experience learning to surf!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

During some free time while in Bali, 3 of us went to learn how to surf. Found UP2U on TripAdvisor due to it's good ratings. I can confirm it was a GREAT EXPERIENCE.

They picked us up and dropped us off at our hotels. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We had never surfed before so they set us up with big floating boards and an instructor and off we went. The instructor was patient, fun, nice guy.

We started on the beach with the basics and in 10 minutes we were out in the surf! The instructor gave us good tips and seemed to be having a good time himself. After surfing we were able to buy some photos from a photographer and the owner recommended a good local restaurant for lunch.

Hello Mr Richards,

Thank you for your great review.

It was great to have you all surfing it definitely was a very funny class so many laughs and allot of standing up with many pictures to prove this to your friends and family at home.

You and your friends where great at surfing the instructor said it was a very easy job to get and that you where up and standing within the first 10 minutes of your lesson.

The pictures also showed that you all where talented at surfing but most of all were the huge smiles that you all had whilst surfing that’s the feeling that we all have when we paddle out and catch a wave.

Surfing is the best!

If you’re in Bali again drop on in and say hello it would be great to catch-up with you all again

Take care,
Paul and the crew from UP2U Surf School Bali

“Fun & encouraging.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

My boyfriend and I had come to UP2U for a lesson (bf needed a refresher and It was my first time) after reading good reviews online and stumbling upon it one night trying to find our way to Kuta beach. I'm happy we did as my experience couldn't have been better. Our instructor Norman was so friendly and fun, politely correcting us and encouraging us to get as many waves in as we could!

Thanks Paul for the great time!

Hi Hailey how are you,

Thanks for the review we really do appreciate you letting the world know about UP2U Surf School Bali.

To have you both surfing with us was great fun and yes Norman can be very cheeky but he is a great instructor. Norman said you both where so quick learning surfing and he sad it’s great to see you both standing and smiling so much.

They say only a surfer knows the feeling so you now know the feeling it’s the best in the world!

We hope you come back to Bali soon and when you do please drop in and say hello we would to have another surf session with you again.

Take care,
Paul and the crew from UP2U Surf School Bali

“Best place in Bali to learn how to surf!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

UP2U surf is the right place to learn how to surf, Paul and his team are very professional in what they are doing. Prices are great and you get a free pick up from where you are staying and all the equipment are provided by the school. Teachers are very patient, extremely friendly and they are quick in finding your errors and correcting it.

I will go back to Bali and I will go back to this school again for sure.

Hello Mr Ali,

Thanks for the great review mate!

It was great to see how quickly you progressed and to see you ripping it was great we have some great memories with the Mr Ali!

At first you where a little shakey but as your surf course progressed you really started to get it!

Hopefully you keep practicing and we all really hope you come back for a surf in Bali with UP2U again,

Take care,
Paul and the crew from UP2U

I had my first ever surfing experience and must say big thanks to Paul and UP2U staff. I caught the first wave just right, thanks to excellent teaching. It was hot day for my Finnish skin but so cool to surf ;) and special thanks to Harry for the awesome pics!

“Amazing Surfing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

We walked along the beach checking out surf shops and searched tripadvisor before choosing Up2U. We were very happy with our decision! More low key then Ripcurl but my girlfriend and I had our own instructor for half the price. They supplied beginner surf boards in excellent condition and a photographer took some incredible photos. Norman got rid of our snowboard habits and had us riding beginner waves in no time! Very fun morning and would recommend to anyone trying surfing for the first time.

Hello Jared,

Thank you for the great review we do appreciate your time and effort and sharing with people around the world about your surf experience with UP2U Surf School Bali.

We like to stay low key and not have our surf classes get to full because
1. You don’t learn how to surf and you don’t get good value for money.
2. Having a large group surfing is not safe!! The ocean can be powerful and having to many people in a surf lesson definitely increases the risk of injury.
3. Having smaller groups is friendlier! You get to know everyone your surfing with and that helps our guests enjoy their surf lesson in Bali more.

Our motto is ‘STANDING AND SMILES’ something that is very important to UP2U Surf School Bali and its guests! But safety is definitely our highest priority that’s why we continually check our surf boards and replace them if we feel they are not up to a high standard of repair!

The photographer Mr Harry is a awesome asset to the company he is a hot surfer and this helps him catch ‘the right moment’ every time we are very stoked to have him work with us.

You both were excellent at surfing! See you both stand-up that quickly was a great feeling for all of us at UPU Surf School Bali. If you are ever in Bali again please drop in and say hello you will always be welcomed and maybe we can all go for a surf again.

Take care mate,
Paul and the crew from UP2U
