Paul and his team, Angung and Kedai (aka Mr liar.) made both my partner and myself really comfortable during our surf lessons.
it all started at a ridiculous timing when i emailed Up2U surf school at 1am in the morning, because i previously found another surf school online that had terrible reviews. thankfully Paul replied my email at 4 that same morning and we managed to arrange our lessons through the phone around 730am.. we booked a 2 day lessons package and started that very afternoon at 2pm.
Up2U doesn't provide transport. but they are more than willing to provide if you're like me, being really lost in legian/kuta. The only hiccup we had was that the initial driver who was supposed to pick us didnt come because he went MIA. we had to take a cab down where paul actually paid for the cab ride. :) *thkyu paul. trust me. it was made up for during our surf lessons.
on our first day we had Angung who speak seriously fluent english with an accent. he is more than funny but really focus on teaching us. his instructions were very clear which is important. because when you're in the water. you may not be able to follow thru..mentioning how our stances should be on the board... he was very encouraging and told us what kinda waves to catch so on and so forth.
on our 2nd day our session was in the morning, the driver was at already at our hotel lobby waiting for us. we had Kedai as our instructor. he was another entertaining fella that made our seriously worn out mentality felt different. he taught us how to increase / reduce speed and how to swing our shoulders and leg to turn the board.
despite the rough waters on the 2nd day, kedai made sure we managed to catch some decent waves before we leave.
Up2U surf school made my Bali trip a seriously memorable one.
1. they had their photographer Harry to deliver our photos to us at our hotel lobby.
2. You can definitely stand on the board on the very first day, i took 3 tries. ;)
3. they are the CHEAPEST in the market with WELL MAINTAINED equipment (i find this very important.
4. Great Instructors with CLEAR instructions.
i just wanna give a big shoutout to the guys in Up2U. Thank You So much once again! :)
i will definitely return to you when im back in BALI.
this is a school i will recommend to my friends to go to. :)
