Can't say enough about Rip Curl, they are the best. When you get out to the waves, you see their presence vs other surf schools on the beach, and rightly so...they do a great job keeping the number of instructors to students is favorable and pairing up people based their experience level! if youre going to surf and want to take lessons, Rip Curl is the way to go!

I had two beginner surf lessons in Sanur. Instructors were professional and fun, thanks guys!! I was able to catch some lovely long waves as a rank beginner out on the reef (grateful for the push offs haha) Also, I booked group lessons but ended up being the only beginner and we went out anyway, which was an unexpected bonus of private lessons. The boat rides were fun too. No I just have to go back to Sanur to do it again!

I liked positive approach, advice about first steps to surfing. Also the backround was OK (showers, cabines for cloth change, reception). It is possible to pay by credit card and you can buy pictures from your lesson. I would recommend prolonging the opening hours as they close at 5p.m which was too yearly for me.

At Rip Curl you pay a premium for the best equipent and service, however I found that despite having an individual lesson I spent a lot of time feeling completely alone, with my instructor either a long way from me or surfing himself and conversing with his friends. As a relatively inexperienced surfer and in larger wave conditions I felt in danger a number of times during my lesson.

Dear Robert E, Thank you for taking the time to review us here. All feedback is highly valuable for us and we think we can always learn and grow from it. In your case, firstly, I would like to apologize that you didn't feel taken care of properly. We never want our student to feel unsafe in or out of water so we'll take a full responsibility for this and take this case seriously. Please let us go through here what happened on that day to make sure we get the whole story correctly. You had a surf lesson with us in Sanur where you take a boat to the line up and surf a reef break. Normally we take first timers in the front of main break in smaller waves. Surfing a reef break can sometimes be little overwhelming for first timers especially because rides are longer thus you'll be further away from your instructor after riding a wave in. We are sorry that our instructor didn't read the situation right and stay close enough to you at all times. We understand that your experience wasn't how it should've been thus we would like to offer you another lesson for free if you liked to give us another chance. We would love to have you surfing with us in Legian, on a sandy beach break, more suitable for first timers who are not so comfortable in a deeper water or reef. Please let us know by emailing directly to community@ripcurlschoolofsurf.com if you liked to accept our offer. Sincerely, Rip Curl School of Surf

I had a good experience with my teenage daughter. Both enjoyed surfing and the teachers were experienced and friendly. You could get your pictures for an extra charge but would have been nice if 1-2 photos would have inluded in the package, and then a possibility to to buy all of them for an extra fee.
