We offer course-only options, as well as a 1-week stay that includes the ISA course, and a complete program that lasts 4, 8, or 12 weeks.

During your 4, 8, or 12-week stay, we aim to prepare you for the ISA & ILS Level 1 or 2 course that is linked to the program. We provide tuition manuals, intern hours, and life-saving exercises to give you a head start on the actual course. For 8 and 12-week programs, we also offer Free Dive/Surfival Apnea training. But that’s not all; we also include an multi day Island Surf Trips to Lembongan, Lombok – Java, Red Island & Gland area.

Our qualified ISA & ILS surf instructors and their assistants will coach you twice a day, regardless of whether you’re an beginner, intermediate or advanced surfer, to help you pass your 5-day ISA & ILS course. The course includes lessons, training, analyzing, and the final examination, and is hosted by our ISA representative, Dean Gough. While the course normally takes place in just two days, we offer a minimum of 5 days for our program.

The 8 and 12-week programs are also suitable for surfers who want to improve their skills and can be booked without the ISA and ILS exams for a 250,- Euro discount. 

During your stay with us, you can expect to be surfing six times a week on average, with two sessions per day. If you’re eager for more, we’ve got you covered with your own scooter and board rack, so you can head out for solo or group surf sessions whenever you like. Sundays are designated rest days, but you’re free to surf or explore as you wish. We’ve also scheduled excursions every other week, so you can experience the best of Indonesian scenery and culture.

We’re committed to helping you become a well-rounded surfer and instructor, so we’ll be taking advantage of Indonesia’s world-renowned waves. We’ll go on trips to the legendary G-land and Lombok, as well as surfing the famous and infamous breaks right here in Bali. We believe in using video analysis as a tool for personal development, so we’ll be filming and photographing your surfing sessions regularly. Once a week, we’ll sit down together for video analysis, where you’ll not only evaluate your own progress but also learn from watching others. To ensure a comprehensive understanding of surfing, we’ve dedicated time for theory evenings where we delve into topics such as safety and surfing rules. Additionally, we also offer surf skate sessions and freedive/surfival apnea workshops and training to enhance your knowledge and skills in the sport. Our goal is to provide a very complete surfing experience that goes beyond just riding waves.

But it’s not all work and no play! We believe in letting loose and enjoying ourselves, so we’ve got a fully stocked bar where you can unwind with a drink or cocktail. Our restaurant serves up Asian specialties and world classics made according to original recipes, so you can refuel with delicious food after a long day of surfing.

Although some surfing experience is recommended, it’s not always necessary to participate in the Surf Instructor course. We have had successful students who went through the Zero to Hero experience, indicating that anyone with a passion for surfing and a willingness to learn can enroll in the course.

To qualify for the Surf Instructor certification, one must possess a combination of essential surf skills and fitness levels. The timed swim of 200m completed in less than 5 minutes is a crucial component of the course that ensures participants possess the necessary physical stamina to handle the challenging conditions in the water.

In addition to fitness, aspiring surf instructors must also possess a certain level of proficiency in surfing. The ability to paddle out to the back of the waves, execute duck dives, consistently perform pop-ups on green waves, and execute basic maneuvers while turning both left and right are all critical skills that are necessary to obtain the qualification.

The Surf Instructor course is designed to help students develop and improve their surfing proficiency and fitness levels. Through a combination of instruction, practice, and feedback, participants will work on enhancing their skills and abilities. Whether through training drills, group sessions, or individual instruction, the course aims to equip aspiring surf instructors with the skills they need to pass the certification and succeed in their career.

To be able to enter Bali it requires a full COVID vaccination or a negative PCR test.

Travel and cancellation insurance are essential for any traveler, as unforeseen circumstances can arise during any trip. Such circumstances can include accidents, medical emergencies, loss of baggage or passports, and trip cancellations or interruptions. Without insurance, travelers may find themselves facing significant financial losses.

Travel insurance provides coverage for such unforeseen events, ensuring that travelers are protected against financial losses that may arise due to these events. Cancellation insurance, in particular, provides coverage for the expenses incurred when a trip is canceled or interrupted due to unforeseen circumstances.

Thus, having travel and cancellation insurance is crucial for travelers as it offers peace of mind and financial protection during their journeys.
