Ketut was great.. He challenged me, taught me what I needed, and encouraged me. He was attentive, his critique of me was constructive and a few times... a little bit of a laugh helped - he has humour threaded into your series of lessons and this helps make the learning that much more fun and memorable.
I stood up in my first lesson. I worked with him for 3 days and learned some good basics. It's a sport that takes time, and one week is minimal to actually get good (unless you are a prodigy! which is possible) so don't fret. He keeps you on a good pace and what I appreciated most is I wasn't babied... he helped me with my first few attempts and then taught me how to get back in again when he watched from away and rode out with me (even after some waves ate me alive... you learn how to conquer these too!)
What I did like is that he picked us up from the hotel, provided boards, and carefully chose our surf spots to ensure maximum results. (Seminyak, Kuta and Canggu all offer a different experience.. We stuck to Seminyak as the waves were best to learn from when I was out there. I slept in Canggu... 5-10 minute drive so don't fret about where you are).
