The itinerary varies somewhat depending on the start time for your lesson. The surf lessons are timed to coincide with the right tidal conditions for your level. This is so that the waves you practice on are ideal for your level. Pro surf school sets the times in a couple of weeks in advance based on forecasted tides. A sample itinerary could look something like below (but might vary a bit given the start of your surf lesson time):
- 1:30 p.m. Pick up from your villa / accommodation
- 2:00 p.m. Surf lesson
- 4:30 p.m. Depart for villa (for guests doing the VIP villa party) or accommodation.
Note: Between January and March the tide changes in Bali and can cause the beach in Kuta to become quite dirty. As such, we recommend that you don’t do surfing on Kuta beach between January and March.

Questions and Answers
What do I need to bring?

No. But there are a large number of places to eat near the surf school. The surf school itself also has a great restaurant. All tastes and budgets can be accommodated.
Are drinks / refreshments provided?
Do I need prior experience?
No. This is for people that have no prior experience with surfing.
What’s the format for the teaching?
You’ll have around 30 minutes of theory before spending the rest of your lesson in the ocean. We have one instructor to a maximum of 3 students so you’ll receive all the tuition and attention you need to stand up in your first lesson.
What if there are people in my group that can already surf?
If you have people in your group that are slightly more advanced, they can join another group with another instructor who provides instruction for surfers that have already completed a beginner course and are ready to catch some serious waves. In total there are 6 levels of surf tuition offered. Level 6 (Intermediate III) is for people who are ready to tackle bigger waves on the reef.
Should I go out drinking the night before?
No. This is full day surf lesson and you’ll need your energy. We take all necessary steps to ensure your safety but if you show up not feeling well, don’t go surfing.
