This is a place I just keep coming back to! I started going about 3 years ago and find it hard to justify going anywhere else in Bali.
With regards to surf guiding and instruction, i would recommend it to anyone from true beginner to experts who just want someone to surf with and don't want to worry about tide charts and swell conditions. I basically learnt to surf at this camp 3 years ago and now just go for surf guiding. The local instructors are a great bunch of guys, all excellent surfers and good teachers too. They are lots of fun to be out in the water with as they banter together and try to tease you as well :) I have seen a massive improvement in my surfing since coming here, and on each trip, get more tips and help from the coaches.
The accommodation is very comfortable, grounds are lovely with good sized pool and relaxation areas with hammocks. There is friendly staff and good chefs serving up a mixture of local cuisine and more western food.
The thing I love most about this place is the people. Both the people who work here and create a great surf holiday atmosphere, and the fellow travelers I have met. Every time I go, I make new friends, a lot of whom I meet up with again.
I'll probably be there for my 7th trip again soon :)
