I am a Hong Kong traveler who stayed in Lombok for a month in Feb. i had around 14 days lessons which surfing with monkey surf teachers. All I want to say is the teachers are very good, experienced and patient. They can provide a recommendation of your style and positioning right after you catch the waves. The recommendations are very good for a rookie like me to tackle some more challenging waves. Thanks for your help in the last month and I will recommend you guys to check this school if you are in Lombok.

We spent 4 days with Bahtiar and his awesome local crew surfing breaks in lombok. Nothing was ever to hard.. We are a family of 4.. 11 and 14 yr old boys .. my husband and me .. all of different levels .. they took us to different amazing breaks everyday around kuta .. looked after all of us and really tuned in to all our varying needs. We had so much fun and awesome solid and holding rides. Highly recommend them to anyone interested in any level of surfing. Take you out of your comfort zone with confidence but still feel so safe .. best experience.. Will always come back to them.. local knowledge and cool dudes . Cant go wrong.. Thanks brothers!!!! Jeff , Nox Judd and mama xx

My first day was with Kimjho. He was an awesome instructor and helped me catch some of my first waves. He was very responsive one their WhatsApp number. He checked in with me multiple times before my visit and during my visit to know what times to meet at the surf shop. The second day I surfed with Win. He took me out to a more intermediate surfing area. He was super friendly and got me up on a hardtop to catch some long breaks! I definitely recommend Monkey Surf for anybody who wants to learn, practice or just needs a guide to great surf spots. 10/10.

I spent two days surfing with instructors from Monkey surf shop. I had about 10 days of surfing experience before coming to Kuta and I became a much better surfer thanks to my instructors John and Bri. They taught me about the breaks and helped me to improve greatly on riding the wave once up (which was exactly what I needed). The price was better than other more well known shops/schools in town and I think they instruction and service was top notch. I wish that I had more time to go out more days with them. In addition, Kimjo is such a great guy at the shop. He answered my text at 8:45pm to go out surfing the next morning. Kimjo is very friendly and makes you feel like part of the Monkey family as soon as you step foot in the shop. Would highly recommend Monkey for all surf levels.

I had a great day in the waves with Abdul from Monkey Surf Shop & School. Abdul was a great teacher ensuring I got up on most waves. The ~30min (each way) trip through the countryside on the back of a scooter and the cup of Lombok coffee and the large water at the beachside warung really added to the experience!
