I came across this camp after a quick google search for 'best surf camps Bali', and I wasn't disappointed. Whilst it isn't cheap on a student budget, my 10 day stay was 100% worth the money. The camp itself is beautiful, the staff super friendly and the provided food is great! There's a real family atmosphere, meaning that I felt immediately at home, despite travelling solo for the first time.
The thing that stood out most of all, however, was the quality of the surf guiding and lessons. I've had some seriously borderline surf lessons in the past, however these guys were great, coming into the water and providing feedback after each wave. Even better was the fact that lessons weren't given just for the sake of it- I was encouraged to just go with the included free guiding after a few days, saving me a considerable amount of money! The instructors were knowledgable about the best break, meaning I got to surf some really incredible secret spots, along with tailoring groups to ability, not taking people to places beyond their skills, but still challenging you if you wanted. I was beyond impressed! This is definitely a place that I'm gonna come back to!
