“Best school on Bali!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

We have chosen this school because of good reviews and it was a right decision! Friendly staff, good location, all equipment necessary - even the sunscreen. I definitely recommend this school! They organize great surf parties too!
Ps they also have greta resto: Ahi Tuna is a must try!

“Great Surfers Accommodation in Kuta”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Location
Pro Surf is situated right in the middle of Kuta across the road from the beach. Can be a little loud during the night due to the Night Club next door.
Accommodation
2 Dorms with 6 beds, 2 double rooms, 2 rooms for four. All rooms are nicely and stylishly furnished and equipped with AC. The rooms have a great bath and view of the beach, the dorms have a communal bath and view of the pool. Rooms are cleaned daily. Board includes a choice of different breakfasts which are served in the beach lounge restaurants downstairs. The staff is very nice and helpful
Surfing
Packages of Surf lessons can be booked in addition to the accommodation (35 Euro per lesson). Surf lessons take place at the beach break across the road. Surf instructors are competent and helpful. Additionally Surf Trips can be booked to different locations. Price for a surf trip is 50 Euro.
The concept of surf trips (surf guiding) should be adapted so that intermediate surfers can try out different spots besides Kuta for a reasonable price (similar to Kima or other surf camps). May be a price per trip and not per person should be set up. This would add the additional option of being more like a surf camp and not only accommodation plus surf lessons

“Well run, organized and efficient.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

My wife and I went for the half day beginner lesson, this was priced at about $60.
The fitting of suits tops and lockers was fast and smooth. We had a half hour indoor lesson, the we got our boards and walked to the beach( warning, sand and road arE extremely hot, I would bring my shoes).
The lessons in the water were well sequenced, first paddling, the getting up in stages. The whole group was able to get up onto their boards, what I didn't realize was how exhausting it is to walk out to sea, paddle, stand up , then repeat. The lesson is the right amount of time, about two 45 minute sessions in the water
My only concern was that the instructors, who were very good, we're a bit overworked for this size of class,(we were 7). I would have enjoyed more one on one.
All in all a great school, clean and pleasing environment.
Ps they take great pictures of you surfing, all for $15, so smile.

“Highly recommended school”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

Excellent location - right on the first line close to the beach, so you don;t have to carry your board for miles; amazing staff - Frank provided great theoretical lessons for us to understand the basics of surfing, guys Boni, Johnatan, Barron were taking care of us on the water, providing continuous feedback what and how to improve, they will be a bit harsh on you sometimes:), but believe me its for good, helps you to pull yourself together better;) I liked that in school they take care of everything: providing with wet suits, sun block, lockers, towels and of course boards. Also to mention - the place itself is very stylish, and you can hang out there after surfing at the pool, or sunbathing on the deck, or eating at a very pleasant restaurant. I could stand up on the board on the 1st lesson, but if you cant they provide next lesson for you for free. Also they have swimming pool where you can practice when the waves are not good, very useful. I loved the place and recommend it for anybody willing to learn surfing. Thank you guys so much for everything! Cheers

“Surf and Coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Husband hired a board and away he went, He didn't need lessons and so just being able to hire from a local reputable company was great and he had it for hours if he wanted.

I had coffee while he went and found some waves and they were great staff as i ordered the wrong coffee and they fixed it up for me and didn't charge very much appreciated.
