Me and friend went in March 2020 to Nemo's Surf School in Lombok. It's located directly at the main road so you can't miss it. First things first our surf lesson there was amazing and we had a lot of fun. We came in the morning where we met Abdul. He's the owner and teacher. Very friendly person and easy to talk with. Because of the Corona Outbreak that time there were no other students so we could start right away. After we got our watershoes and a shirt from him we drove to a secret spot, where Abdul could show us beginners how to surf. The place he showed us is hidden from other tourists surf spots so we had enough space to do our first tries. I think even in high season that place is not busy but it has awesome waves for beginners. He took his time to show us same safety rules for surfing and how to paddle on the beach. After that we went right away into the water to catch some waves. With his instructions we could learn very fast how to paddle correctly and stand up when a wave is coming. Unfortunately after 2 hours the waves dissapears so we had to stop. But Abdul asks us if we want to continue in the afternoon. So we did. For the afternoon lesson his son Ari joined us and went with us to the water. Ari is also a very good teacher and talented surfer. He loves surfing. My friend had in the beginning of the day some difficulties to stand up but both were very patient and encouraging that he will stand up at the end of the day. And with their help and tips he managed to surf several meters. Overall it was a very good and entertaining experience and we are glad that we met these guys. Both are fluent in English so communication is no problem. In the end of the day we spent some time at the surf school to talk. We had to leave Lombok earlier because of Corona but we will come back to them and also I will recommend this surf school to my friends or anybody who wants to surf or just want to rent a board.

Two adults and two young children (aged 11 and 9) had a FABULOUS time with our instructor Ari and the rest of the Nemo gang, who were incredibly friendly and supportive throughout our lesson. We were all total beginners, but through their patient tutelage it wasn't long before we were all getting to grips with the basics. The instructors gave tips and advice throughout, but the best bit was how genuinely enthusiastic they were and how they cheered our every success. The children rate it as one of the very best aspects of our two-week stay, and I recommend the experience highly.

My friend and I had a really great time out learning surfing with Abdull, Riki and team. They were patient and were very encouraging throughout the lessons. Not only did we learn some basics but we had lots of fun during our time there.

My boyfriend and I had a great time with Ari at Nemo's school! Since we tried surf before, the first day Ari helped us refresh the technique and recognize the waves. He even took some shots of us while riding the waves with his Gopro 😊The second day, we just rented the surf, because Ari suggested us we were ready to surf. He was also there teaching other people but he was always giving us a tip and helping us to recognize the waves. Really recommended! Professional and nice, great guy! Prices are reasonable and fair. Small tip:if you arrive at the school spot and you don't find anybody, try to write or ask the people around. Usually Ari and his colleagues are staying at the beach in front of Warung Paradiso, you can try to go directly there.
