“Great experience”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

I choose to go with a private lesson for my first time and I'm glad I did. I don't think it would of been as successful in a small group.

They picked me up from my hotel and we went to the shop. After a little bit of paperwork, they provided me with a locker key and a rash guard. I met my instructor and off we went to the beach across the street. Not far at all.

After some basic instruction on the beach we set out into the water. I expected to fall down most of the time and not be very good, but I was surprised and surfed many waves and had a great time. The instructor(Lei?) was patience and very knowledgeable. There was also a guy running around with a camera takes pictures and video which you can buy later for only $15. The quality was very good, so I went for that. After that was all settled I had to wait for some other people to wrap up their business before being taken back to my resort.

I will totally do this again, and probably do another private lesson with the same company. To complete newbies like myself, I would warn you it is exhausting!

Central location. Hard to miss.

Good facilities and decent price for rental. Slightly more expensive than pro-surf school, but location more central & you don't have to carry board back to school, which is plus

Foam board I rented was kind of funny, but otherwise it's all good.

I'd go back again!

“Awesome Odyssey surf adventure”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

Hey if your looking for a great crowd of people and cool times Odyssey surf school is THE way to go! Pick up from your hotel, local directions on surf and conditions, made to feel one of the team and patient and fun instructions from the instructors!
Beginners had a ball from what I saw - laughing falling and heaps of fun! Intermediate surfing was great - the guys were awesome in helping correct styles and your general surfing and the waves were great!!
The cool manager was always attentive as were the excellent staff - safe storage lockers and hot showers available as well as towels and surf rashies! Top notch show with fun and no dramas!
Highly recommended and prices were excellent! Just go look at their web pages etc. thanks. Odessey!!!

“Fun, well organised and an excellent Instructor”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

My wife and I visited for a 2.5 hour semi private lesson and had never surfed before. We had one instructor between two of us. He was excellent. His descriptions were thorough, he was very patient and he was enthusiastic. Brilliant value for money and well organised. We paid approx. £50 each for the day including transfers from Nusa Dua and the use of lockers and showers. For approx. £10, we were able to purchase the professional photos, of which there were over 150! Another couple we spoke to had one instructor between 6 and weren't as happy as us so I'd recommend the semi private lesson. If you've never surfed before, it is hard work and I found 2.5 hours more than enough for one day. I would strongly recommend to a friend.

“Great fun in the sun!”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

My son (7years old) and I had a blast learning to surf this morning. This was our first time. Our instructors (Alfred and Kimu) were fabulous. They provided us with good clear instructions and were very patient. We had lots of laughs while learning the basics. They were professional, friendly and safety conscious. I would recommend them without hesitation. Can't wait to try this again!
