The good reviews are all true. Nick, the 'Wave Guru', will take you to the best waves in Bali. His knowledge and experience is excellent, but best of all is his energy and enthusiasm for getting his guests the best waves. And then back home you are treated like one of the family and fed like a king. You won't go hungry here. Large comfortable house with big tv and pool table is great for chilling out after the session. Highly recommended.

so i came to bali for the first time by myself with the intention of scoring some of the waves of my life. this only came true thanks to nick ( wave guru). his local knowledge is amazing, always finding waves regardless of the weather or conditions. on multiply occasions we were surfing 4-6ft by our selves. stand up barrels. life changing.

nicks wave guru supplied for me so much more than just a surf trip. it felt like home. he has two kids full of love and laughter who are always looking for someone to play with. watch out for maxxie haha they have a pool table and big tv and a fridge full of beer so its pretty easy to get accustomed too.

the food is amazing, 3 meals a day. i never went hungry and got eat the local cuisine on a regular bases. you might find one of the chefs on indo master chef haha :) ( its not still a secret? haha)

kutu is scary, clubbing is kindof dangerous but nick employs locals to help with that kind of stuff.
Rhido took me every where, from clubbing to the monkey forest in udbud. were you are in control, letting you choose how to travel... e.g. on mushrooms.

all in all nick made it that much easier to full in love with bali, its hard not too. ive made a life long friend and im already planning my next trip back. he will cater for all levels of surfing. all you need is a smile and the right attitude. surfing is his passion, and its amazing to surf with someone like that. you will not regret going to wave guru. especially if you want something more authentic and exciting, nick wont disappoint.

o and he loves putting sunblock on peoples back so don't hesitate to ask :)

Room Tip: get an aircon room, u need it

Highly recommend for surfers. Every day we went to uncrowded (even totally unknown in some cases) breaks and scored amazing waves. Nick (Wave Guru) has excellent local knowledge and knows which breaks are going to catch in all conditions. Two guided surfs per day, the early at 5.30am and the later one around 3pm. It's a home stay and the staff at the house were lovely and prepared filling meals 3 times a day. The fridge was always full of bottled water and beers. The house is huge and the rooms are comfortable. There's a scooter that guests can borrow and it's a short drive to Nusa Dua or Kuta. Nick is really friendly and a great guide. All up it's incredibly good value. Will definately be going back.

After having checked out the wave guru I can certainly tell that this is heaven on earth for surfers.
Don't go there if you are a beginner or need a 5-star hotel (in that case the Chillhouse would be your choice) but go there if you really love surfing.

Nick is an outstanding guide
Not only does he know spots no one knows (0-5 people in the water...in Bali!!!) he also chooses them perfectly suited to your surfing skills. If you stay close to him he helps you catch the wave by telling you to paddle the 1 meter to the left/right so catching the waves was as easy as never before.

Foodwise you will never be hungry (by the way his wife was awarded being the best chef in Bali).

Nick is an amazing host.
He gives you tips for spending your time out of the water and helps you in any circumstance. He even lets you become part of his family and became a real bro!

I had an amazing time and would have liked to stay much longer...next time!

Thanks Nick for an awesome stay, you really made us feel welcome in your home as part of your family. Sick waves, cold beers, good healthy local food, intense pool games and good times. I'd highly recommend Wave Guru to anyone who wants to see more than just Kuta beach and Sky Garden
