Monkey Surfing is a surf school for all surfers.

Beginners can learn through our lesson "introduction to surfing" or immerse themselves in the surf culture with the 3-surflessons beginner program.

Intermediates can improve and learn a different wave with our lesson "introduction to the reef break" or bring their skills to the next level with the 3-surflessons intermediate program.

Advanced can choose through the widest range of Surfboard Rental on the island (Longboards & Single fins, Mini-mals, Funboards, Retro boards, performance shortboards with high-tech fins) & surfguiding.

At Monkey Surfing you'll meet people who travel the world to surf, share their experiences and smiles.

Our classes follow the ISA standards, our instructors are ISA certified and surf life-savers. They are not only surfers, they are also watermen and do all the water activities to appreciate and understand this element.

We teach ONLY IN SMALL GROUPS - 3 students for 1 instructor max - because we want to give you the best learning conditions. This way you can improve faster than regular lessons in other schools and in a safer environment.

Private Surf lesson are also available on request.

Worst customer service I have ever experienced. Ran by an arrogant man whose only interest seems to be in himself and not the well being of his customers. Nusa Lembongan is beautiful location but there are plenty other local people who give much better customer service and you will have a very enjoyable experience.

Thank you Chris, he provided me with background knowledge on waves and currents before we even got on the water. Then we slowly did white waves first, he gave pushs when needed - I did not feel unsafe at all! Great place to learn surfing. A bit more expensive than other places, but definitely feels like a professional place that... More

I was with my two daughters (7 and 8) in Lembongan for a few days and ask them to teach them the basics, and help me improve. They provided everything from the board and the shoes (mandatory) to the sunscreen, taught us... More

I had a great time during my 3 surfing lessons at Monkey Surfing. I was a total beginner and the instructors were great at communicating the basics of surfing and safety. They stick right with you the whole time and kept coaching as different situations came along. It always felt very safe and we had tons of fun. It was... More

We had an amazing lesson with the guys. The equipment is good. We caught a boat to a reef which was too busy so the lads took us somewhere quieter with tasty waves!
