I did not have a great experience with this company but I am giving 4 stars because they handled the situation well, but it was not what I expected. I emailed and What’s App’d Jankie in advance and he was very responsive and answered all my questions really well. I paid the 150,000 IDR deposit in advance as he instructed and set my date. I signed up for an intermediate SUP surfing lesson. I explained to Jankie over email about my experience etc. I live in Hawaii and have been surfing for 10 years. I decided to travel to Sanur specifically because of this lesson as SUP surfing is not common and it seemed like a great company. I wanted a lesson because I wanted help to improve my surfing. I arrived to the meeting place and a few minutes later a guy showed up. He did not introduce himself. I had to ask him his name and if he was the instructor. He said he was, that his name was “Stop” and that Jankie was in Italy. His English was really poor and he wasn’t particularly friendly. I was the only person in the lesson, which I do appreciate them doing the lesson with just me as they usually have a 2 person minimum. He gave me a few tips but he was very difficult to understand. He also could not answer any questions I had because he couldn’t understand me. Even a simple question like “what is the tide doing”? He would also catch the first wave of each set which is bad manners in my opinion. I was paying for a lesson and how is he supposed to give me tips if he catches a wave before me. When we got back he said he would only charge for the board rental because “I could already surf” he said “most people who sign up for an intermediate lesson have only been surfing one time.” I thought to myself “that is why I signed up for an intermediate lesson!” Because he only charged me for the board rental I am still giving 4 stars but the experience was not what I was expecting. They do have great equipment and the break is nice and forgiving so excellent for beginners. Although it is VERY shallow which took getting used to for me. There is a good 1 k paddle to get to it so I would really consider the boat shuttle option next time. I know this review is really long but I hope I might save someone the heart ache I experienced. I would recommend this company for beginners though.

This was my first ever time on a Stand Up Paddleboard. It was easy to book online with Jankie and I found the meeting place without difficulty. There were a couple of other students and we were all beginners. Our instructor fitted us out with the correct size paddle, and led us to the beach where we got our boards. After a safety briefing and demo, we were in the water and it was not long before we were all standing up! It was easier and harder all at the same time, the wind makes it hard to paddle the way you want, but our instructor stayed close by and also took photos with our camera so we had good memories for later. The weather was fine and not too windy, but we were just beginners so we did not go far, though with more experienced paddlers or more lessons, you can go to the surf break and surf on the waves. For my first time, it was good to just paddle around in the bay and I will definitely go back for another lesson when I am in Bali again!

I booked the two hour SUP surf/paddle lesson with the intent on improving my wave catching technique. My coach was very knowledgeable and his attention to detail greatly improved not only my wave catching technique, but also my paddling style. We paddled out to the reef break and caught many decent long riding waves and after each wave, he offered his feedback and suggestions for the next wave. Overall, my experience with Bali Stand Up Paddle School exceeded my expectations and I learnt more in that two hours than I had previously learnt during my lessons in Australia. Huge thumbs up to my coach (sorry I cant remember your name) and Bali Stand Up Paddle School .

The only place to go for SUP experiences that are just amazing. Jankie looked after us before we even stepped foot into his school and made sure our family of 4 had an unforgettable time. Highly recommended, can’t wait to hang out with Jankie and the Bali Stand Up Paddle School team again. See you guys soon and thanks for the memories! 🤙🏼

Have been there many years in a row with friends and other stand up paddlers, sometimes taking my own board but many many times hiring from Jankie. Always friendly no fuss service. Boards are stored right at the hotel with a very short walk to the beach and short paddle to the waves. There are options to have your board on a trolley down to the waters edge 50m or so walk if you don't want to carry them... and options to be driven out to the wave break on a boat if you want to save your energy....Will definitely be back to paddle with Bali Stan Up Paddle School again in the future!
