I paid for 2.5 hours of a group lesson on a Sunday afternoon and ended up with my very own instructor. Perhaps they just had extra staff on hand, but it was great to get the personal attention- especially since it was my first time to even hold a surf board. My instructor was great. His instruction and explanation (on dry land) was so good that I was up on the board the first try!! By the end of the lesson, he had me picking out the right waves and chasing them myself- I felt like a real surfer :)
The pick up at my hotel (Conrad Bali) was so convenient and my driver even took me to the airport after my lesson since I was flying back to Singapore that evening! The transportation alone would have cost me about $35 US dollars- so getting a surf lesson too was a GREAT value.
Also, since I was traveling alone on a weekend in between a business trip to Singapore, the CD of all the photos of my surfing adventure was exactly what I needed to prove to my husband that I ROCKED those waves! The Odyssey photographer lets you look through the photos to see if you want to buy the CD, but if you have as much fun as I had surfing with Odyssey, trust me, you'll want those photos to remember the day!
